Floors to dance
For indie rock
aficionados who need to shake it.
This is a great club to come to in theory, 3 floors with different kinds of music all appealing to me. The drinks are reasonable. It's not too packed.
But I am living in the past. I remember Mosquito Coast. I remember Bar Gaudi, which has been annexed by the club. Back then was probably the last time I bought a Cassette (yescassette) or turned on the radio too. I am woefully out of touch and didn't know the music. It sounded like I would like it, given a chance.
Still it is a very good venue and is probably better in its current incarnation.
Mosh is pretty good for a rock club. As far as rock clubs go. All the usual stuff you get when you go to any other rock club in the UK: metal floor, punk floor and chart music floor - but the crowd seem a friendly bunch (if you don't go too often, that is!)
It's a safe bet if you want to go to a club after hours but you haven't made the effort for those places that are a bit pretencious. Mosh is down to earth - which suits me.
Good drink promos, it's a bit same-y week on week but at least you know what you are getting!
Quite a new place to go out to on Friday and Saturday nights, they have a range of music so it will suit most peoples tastes.
Nice to go out to when you're in a group and you can get some odd people in there, but on the whole a nice place.
Another great student hand out but a bit too trendy for me! Full of skinny jeaned posers. If you really like music and you want an unpretentious night out with sticky floors go to fan club.
This has to be the best rock venue in Leicester. The club is spread over 3 floors, which all play a different genre of music on different nights. The best floor is the basement, which is called Gaudie Bar, and is just beautiful - its set up like a converted church with stain glass windows and gargoyles on the walls. Tuesday nights they have an open mike down there and the bands are normally really good.
The middle floor is average Indie, apart from on a Friday night when its hard core metal, its normally empty and an awesome night out as you have the dance floor, bar and DJ pretty much to yourself, so nothing gets in the way of enjoying the music. The atmosphere's amazing as thats exactly what everyone is there to do.
The top floor is best on a Tuesday night when its drum and bass night, but the rest of the week is pretty good too, as this floor has the largest dance floor.
Tuesday night is the stuent night, and drinks are all really cheap. Most people go to Gaudi Bar for pre-drinks and then upstairs to party. But Wednesday night and Friday night are really good too.
Went the other week, really enjoyed myself. There was a great selection of music over three floors. I loved having the choice, though I kept to the indie, it was good to wander. The best alternative night out in Leicester. A great atmosphere with great people, both customers and staff. Totally unpretentious, and there's something for everyone, whatever their tastes
Started going here a few months back, and never had a problem any of the times I've been. Okay, top floor on saturdays there can be one or two people that get a bit pushy and shovey, but nothing thats not handled. Cheap drinks and great music, especially bottom floor on Fridays. Friendly people in there, even when you fall over in a mosh pit everyone is quick to help you up! Much better night than the likes of Republic, Liquid etc.. Safer too!
Three floors of amazing rock and bloody roll. You cant go wrong with a bit of Mosh on a friday night. Really gets you in the mood to grow your hair and swing it around a bitheadache I took my nan hear once and she loved it, now she cant stop listening to my disturbed cd's.
It's tough to give 3* to a club which serves pints in proper pint glasses sub £3, but the acoustics really tore my ears to shreds the last few times. Mosh is the only club I go to in leicester because acceptable music outnumbers shite 2:1 (I'm talking to you bottom floor). It's nothing new for London, but in Leicester it's a breath of fresh air.
Mosh opened in late 2003 as Leicester's only real alternative to the Fanclub for an indie kid's night out. Given the Fanclub's long-held dominance, Mosh has flourished really impressively, with a large regular crowd of hipsters, metallers, goths, geeks and everyone else who's just out for a good time. On my many visits I've never once seen anyone get violent, on the contrary everyone just seems to be enjoying themselves. Prices are reasonable, the clientele and staff are lovely. Particularly good on Fridays.
