Carousel: Leeds’ Newest Dynamic Entertainment Venue to Open in March

Leeds, known for its vibrant nightlife and eclectic entertainment scene, is about to get a thrilling addition with the debut of Carousel, a competitive socialising venue set to open its doors in March. Located on the ground floor of the iconic venue once occupied by Tiger Tiger, Carousel promises to redefine entertainment experiences in the city.

A Remarkable Transformation

Led by founder John O’Donoghue, Carousel represents a £2.25 million investment aiming to inject fresh energy into Leeds’ leisure landscape. Having already established successful ventures in Lincoln, including Home Nightclub in 2011 and Carousel in 2021, the expansion into Leeds marks an exciting milestone for the group.

The venue underwent a remarkable transformation, embracing a complete redevelopment to create an atmosphere of immersive entertainment and social interaction. With its prime location in The Light, Carousel is poised to become a go-to destination for locals and visitors alike.

Unparalleled Entertainment

What sets Carousel apart is its diverse array of entertainment options. From private karaoke rooms to interactive darts lanes, shuffleboard tables, and arcade games, there’s something to captivate every guest. Interactive Darts offers a modern twist on the pub classic, while Bank Shot Shuffleboard promises exhilarating gameplay.

Guests can indulge in classic party games like Beer Pong, with Prosecco and Hooch versions adding a delightful twist. The venue’s games arcade will evoke a sense of nostalgia with classic machines like Air Hockey and Whack a Clown, ensuring endless fun for gaming enthusiasts.

Culinary Delights and Quirky Cocktails

Beyond its entertainment offerings, Carousel boasts a tantalising menu inspired by street food culture. From Asian-inspired Bao Buns to the show-stopping Big Top burger and Loaded Fries, the culinary experience is set to delight taste buds. Not to be outdone, Carousel’s mixologists have crafted an innovative cocktail menu inspired by the whimsical world of fun fairs. Signature drinks like Tropic Like It’s Hot and Kinder Surprise promise to elevate the experience.

Home Nightclub: Where the Party Continues

For those seeking to dance into the early hours, Home Nightclub awaits below Carousel. With two distinct club rooms, Home aims to redefine Leeds’ club scene with headline DJs playing the best of commercial, dance, and RnB music. The multi-room nightclub boasts full-scale production and multiple VIP areas, promising an unforgettable night out.

Managing Director John O’Donoghue, said:

We’re thrilled to be opening our newest ventures in Leeds, it’s a great city and was my home for many years. The Light is such an iconic building and the perfect location for the combination of offers we are creating there.

This will be the first time in over 20 years something completely new and original has been brought to this great space in The Light and we are looking forward to feedback from both former and new customers.

Leeds is vibrant, independent and already has some outstanding leisure and hospitality businesses in the city centre, giving both locals and visitors a warm welcome and a great experience.

We are excited to have the opportunity to complement all that hard work and quality with our own brand of fun and entertainment in such a flagship development. We can’t wait to get the doors open and invite guests in.

As Carousel opens its doors on March 28th and Home on March 29th, both venues are poised to become integral parts of Leeds’ entertainment landscape.

The launch of Carousel and Home represents more than just a new venue; it’s a testament to Leeds’ spirit of innovation and celebration.
