The Viaduct Showbar

Multi-award winning LGBTQ+ venue



The Viaduct Showbar is the Number 1 venue for cabaret and live entertainment in Leeds. Open seven days a week, the party never stops here, in the heart of the aptly named Freedom Quarter.

Describing itself as located ‘Out and Proud’ in the heart of Leeds’ Gay Quarter on Lower Briggate, The Viaduct Showbar isn’t afraid to be the most camp, fun, friendly, energetic, and not to mention the sexiest bar in the whole of Leeds. There’s something going on every night, and with an experienced and dashing bar team making fine drinks in an electric atmosphere, visitors will feel included from the moment they enter until the moment they have to leave.

The Viaduct Showbar has so many awards, it’s running out of places to keep them, and an award-winning venue needs award-winning performers. Some of the most renowned drag artists and tribute acts in the UK converge with this glitter-balled venue to create a night to remember in a space where all are welcome.

Raising bucket-loads of money for Leeds Pride and other local charities and support groups, The Viaduct Showbar is an integral element, not just of the LGBTQ+ community, but the community of Leeds as a whole. Simply put, it’s one of those places that just makes Leeds such a wonderful city you can be proud to be a part of.

The Viaduct Showbar transcends the definition of ‘just a gay bar’. No. It’s a family!
