Leeds isn't as much of a touristy city as some of its neighbors, but it's a fine college town, full of many hot young students who've left home for the first time, and who spend their time going out to clubs and hooking up with each other rather than doing their homework. The hookup club scene in Leeds is off the hook, and we're going to let you know exactly where you need to be to have the best time during your trip to Leeds.
Though visiting Leeds today, you might not believe it, Leeds was once the considered the capitol of clubbing in the United Kingdom. In the 1980s, when house music hit big, Leeds was the city that embraced it more than anyone, and out of the passion for house, grew clubs on clubs on clubs; almost all of which would frequently sell out every weekend. This arrival and explosion of house music put a bit of a damper on the punk music scene, which had been Leeds' biggest music scene before then.
As the house and clubbing scene grew, a goth and alternative rock scene began to also take shape, which was probably lead in popularity by Sisters of Mercy to the excitement of some, and the chagrin of others.
It's fascinating to see how music is the thread that goes through all of the UK's hookup scenes, but how each city's musical taste is different. Just as Leeds has a different taste in music than say, Manchester, so does it have a different flavor to is hookup scene. The cocktail bar craze that seems to have swept the majority of the United Kingdom hasn't taken quite the hold on Leeds as it has elsewhere. Of course there are some great cocktail bars to visit, but Leeds' one true love remains clubbing. Even as Leeds residents get older, you'll still find many of them out at house DJ nights and live gigs.
Unlike most cities in the United Kingdom, the daytime hookup scene for locals is fairly dead. The club kids spend all night in the clubs, and often don't leave until after the sun has come up. So they're going straight to bed so that they can rest up and hit the club again later that night. So Thursdays through Sundays are your best bets for a successful hookup mission in Leeds. If you're visiting on business, and have early meetings, that's unfortunate. The calibre of singles in Leeds however is exceptional, and once you've walked the streets a little bit, we're sure you'll agree that you'll need to bite the bullet and go clubbing.
It's also worth noting that the club scene has been around for a long time, so there are some clubs that only open on the weekends because not only is that when they make the most money, but also because they themselves are really tired from staying up late all through the week; and putting on the shows that we owe them a huge thanks for.
The best Leeds hookup spots can be tricky to find if you don't know where to look. But ezhookups.com has created a directory of the best hookup spots.
Since Leeds is so well known for its house clubs, it's only right that you try to pick up at some dance clubs while you're in town. If you don't, you'll get back home full of regrets (and ears that won't be ringing, which is a good thing we guess, but that's not the point).
Leeds may not have many clubs for its swinging community to choose from, but a lot of cities aren't as lucky as Leeds is to have this large and clean swingers club, so the lack of options is far from the end of the world. If you're finding yourself having a hard time in the general hookup scene, it might be worth checking out how you fit in the swinging community. It's certainly more straightforward in terms of communicating what you're looking for from the get-go.
