The Leadmill is well known for its killer gigs and club nights, a favourite being Club Tropica that frequents here. However, Gaga is the answer to what to do on a Friday night, with two rooms covering indie anthems, chart toppers, R&B and house, Gaga caters to the masses (with the main focus being indie).

Leadmill is only five minutes from the train station and a stone’s throw away from Leadmill Point accommodation.
