The Cosy Club, Leicester.

The Cosy Club in Leicester opened nearly 4 years ago in a former Knitwear Factory on Highcross Street. The restaurant feels very much like it's been in the city forever. The former building on Highcross Street has been used since the 1800s. It produced all sorts of vestments including shoes, clothes, and hats. 

The original industrial feel of the site has been retained, giving it a real funky vibe. The Cosy Club has really made the most of the original features and it is a comfortable, airy and spacious place to dine. 

Leicester's Cosy Club provides some great in-house offers and events for their customers to enjoy, including their Great British Gatsby Murder Mystery Dinner Party in October.
