Following a major refurbishment of the bar/restaurant, we are delighted to announce the a new weekly Saturday night funk and soul session. Launching Saturday 3rd February, welcome to The Wardrobe Funk & Soul Club.
Every week from 9pm to late, we have the finest singers, musicians and bands from the local scene and beyond alongside the city’s top funk and soul DJs, and all for free entry.
Since we opened our doors for the first time back in 1999, The Wardrobe has been at the centre of the funk and soul music scene in Leeds. From iconic and memorable live shows in the club by legends such as Sharon Jones, Roy Ayers, Marlena Shaw and Charles Bradley, through to weekly Saturday night live gigs in the bar featuring talented musicians from the vibrant local funk and soul scene.
