History / Past Acts
Three times winner of both the ‘Best Nightclub’ and ‘Best Live Music Venue’ at the annual Leeds Bar & Club Awards, The HiFi Club is a friendly and welcoming spot with an emphasis on quality music and independent charm.
The HiFi Club originally opened in 2001 after the closure of the much loved Leeds City Centre venue, The Underground. Promoters (and young men about town!) Ed Mason, John Morelli & Steven Allison snapped up the basement venue and quickly moved across all the staff and a host of hugely popular clubnights (many of which exist right on through to the present day)! The HiFi Club is now home a range of DJ led and live music nights based around a variety of musical genres including Soul, Funk, Hip Hop, Motown, Reggae and Disco. Not into clubbing, well never fear! There’s also comedy every Saturday night and special events that take place at The HiFi Club throughout the year!
The HiFi Club is also available for private hire (yep we’ve had a wedding or two, corporate events, tea dances, you name it)! Please have a look around the website and contact [email protected] if you have any further enquiries. There’s also a free membership scheme that offers members discounts, special offers and monthly newsletters. Please sign-up here!
