Overview

With live music every Thursday, Friday and Sunday, interspersed with ticketed gigs throughout the year, there is something to suit everyone. For those who love to dance, we have a DJ every Saturday night. We believe Bootleggers is one of the best music venues in the North of England providing great music, and a great atmosphere. With a capacity of 500, a separate viewing gallery with its own bar, in-house PA System, in-house sound engineer and a great pint, we think we've about covered it all. The upstairs gallery bar and viewing area can be hired for private use; whether for private gigs, birthdays, exhibitions, work parties, hen parties etc. With an in-house PA System and Sound Engineer (if required), we can accommodate most musical requirements. You can also have your gig recorded by our sound engineer. We have vast experience of concerts, DJ nights, comedy nights, celebrations, etc. Please contact us, we'd be happy to discuss your requirements.

This bar is great for live music. You get to meet the musicians and can almost touch them on the stage. Bootleggers has some class acts and good beer too.

We enjoyed our visit to this bar. They seem to have a large selection of live bands on, mostly rock which I appreciated. The bar was comfortable and I loved the real fire on a cold February night.

This is a place where you can go and have a drink and relax and some nights there is just music that you can dance to if you want to, other nights they have a mixture of bands come so there is always something different....More
