Cocktails Of The Week

This week’s Shooter of the week is our version of the classic Bubblegum – Bright blue and tasting like bubblegum, suprisingly, it’s always a popular choice.

The cocktail of the week is a variation on The Bluebird, which originates in Parisian bars, circa 1950. Our version is The Blackbird, and it’s definitely better. Hayley says so.

Tonight’s Katatonia show is now completely sold out online and in shops.

There may be very limited tickets available on the door, but you’ll need to be here as doors open (at 8:00pm) to get your hands on them.

It’s set to be a pretty special night, with support coming from Leicester’s own Internal Conflict.

Cocktails Of The Week

This week’s cocktail of the week is Beyo de Framboesa (That’s ‘Raspberry Kiss’ in Portuguese) – so named because it contains the Brazillian spirit Cachaça, along with Raspberry Liqueur and Pineapple Juice.

The shooter of the week is ‘Tiramashooter’, which by coincidence tastes exactly like Tiramisu.

Firebug at the Summer Sundae Fringe Festival

For the last five years Firebug has been an integral part of the Summer Sundae Fringe Festival, bringing locals and festival goers alike some of the most memorable gigs of their lives from the likes of Red Cars Go Faster, Tired Irie, Kyte, The Dirty Backbeats, Minnaars, Maybeshewill and Death Of London. This year is no exception with our ‘Fringe Thursday’ line-up as strong as ever. AUTOHYPE, THESE FURROWS and KIDS IN CARS take to the stage in the downstairs bar on the eve of the main festival, and after the main festivites are over things move upstairs for the after party with MOSCOW YOUTH CULT and DARK DARK HORSE playing more electronic sets, plus DJ sets from super-secret-special-guests.

It doesn’t stop there though – in the week before we’re pleased to bring you some fantastic touring bands, supported by even more incredible local talent.

Cocktails Of The Week


This weeks Cocktail of the week is called ‘Blimey’. It’s based on a recipe developed by the makers of finlandia, but using Cuba Lime and Lemon Vodka Liqueur, fresh blackberries and blackcurrant liqueur to make a fruity short and potent summer drink.
The Shooter of the Week is ‘Baby Banana Cheese Cake’ made from Baileys, Creme De Bananes and Amaretto. Lovely stuff.
