- Citispace Bar
A small friendly venue who are looking to become a name for new music in Leeds. We want to offer bands artistic freedom to try out new material and enjoy themselves.
We offer a Bar Tab Trial, whereby acts come in for their first gig and are paid with a few drinks then, if the crowd is good, we book them for a repeat gig which will be paid.
We are trying to create a place that is about music and good times, not an image or dress sense.
All great things start small, but we believe this bar has potential to make something of itself, and would like our bands to be a part of it.
The venue would suit jazz/blues/funk/soul etc, however we'd love to try a few different styles. Our licence is until 11, so DJs may feel the hours are a little early.
