There are two things that Leeds knows best: (1) music and (2) pubs. Combine the two and you’ve guaranteed yourself a cracking night out.

There are plenty of open mic nights around the city that will keep you occupied most nights of the week, so allow us to list five of the best for you to take your pick:

The Hop

Where?

The Dark Arches, Granary Wharf, Dark Neville St, Leeds LS1 4BR

When?

Wednesday 8pm

What?

They provide the guitar and a free beer, you just turn up and provide the music. The Hop is at Granary Wharf, which is mere minutes away from the train station and just yards from the canal, so you can sit outside in the beer garden in the remaining sunlight before you pick up the guitar inside and set the stage alight.

The New Conservatory

Where?

Albion Pl, Leeds LS1 6JL

When?

Thursday 8.30pm

What?

Toby Thorne takes to the stage every Thursday night to entertain the music-loving punters at the New Conservatory on Albion Place. Join him with your acoustic talents and you might just make a name for yourself.

The Ship Inn

Where?

71 Briggate, Leeds LS1 6LL

When?

Tuesday 8.30pm

What?

A man by the name of Ben gets his music on every Tuesday night at one of Leeds’ most characterful pubs. The historic Ship Inn on Briggate welcomes acoustic acts from far and wide, so escape from the busy city streets and get involved in the musical magic in this courtyard pub. You won’t look back.

The Grove Inn

Where?

Back Row, Leeds LS11 5PL

When?

Wednesday

What?

The home of the longest running folk night in the UK also plays host to an excellent open mic night. The Grove Inn, hidden in the shadows of the towering Bridgewater Place, is a place for musical minds to mingle whether it’s Wednesday’s open mic night or not.

The Chemic Tavern

Where?

9 Johnston St, Leeds LS6 2NG

When?

Thursday

What?

You’re never short of things to do at the Chemic Tavern, with everything from Irish folk nights on Wednesdays to Pub Dub nights on the first Friday of every month. Sandwiched between them is a brilliant open mic night that will open your mind up to the local talent that lies in the backstreets of Leeds’ unbeatable music scene.
