Cultural Quarter becomes the new home to the Queen Victoria Arts Club
Leicester’s iconic Cultural Quarter has recently welcomed a brand-new restaurant and bar to its offering as the ribbon was cut on The Queen Victoria Arts Club in October.
The most recent project from Cassie Soulsby, a Leicester-born entrepreneur with years of experience in the hospitality industry, The Queen Victoria Arts Club is set to be the talk of the town.
Situated inside The Queens Building, the restaurant is a marriage between modern-day and the traditional stylings of an old arts club. As for the food, diners can enjoy the best of British with lunch and à la carte menus available.
The style of a traditional arts club has been carried through to the drink’s menu too with classic cocktails and a top selection of Champagne on offer.
The location for the new restaurant is perfectly situated, with the beating drum of the Cultural Quarter, The Curve Theatre, just a stone’s throw away. To complement its surroundings, a pre-theatre menu has been created by the restaurant’s talented chef, so theatre-goers can pair great food with a great show.
A venue for all occasions, the restaurant has also unveiled its three private dining rooms which can be used by diners wishing for a more intimate gathering.
The interior of a restaurant is a diner’s first impression of what is to come and visitors to the Queen Victoria Arts Club won’t be disappointed.
Housed inside a Grade II Listed building, which was erected in 1897 in-line with Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, the building’s history has influenced much of the restaurant’s interior – and even its name.
Due to the building’s age, there were building restrictions in place, but Cassie and her team have worked around them and created an extraordinary space suitable for all occasions. When the curtain came down on the venue, it was revealed that while the restaurant would be open to the general public, there was also an opportunity to become a resident member – such was the norm in traditional arts clubs.
This annual membership unlocks many benefits including access to the three members rooms, priority booking, an invitation to the annual charity Champagne reception as well as exclusive members-only events.
