It was a ‘school night’ and our first visit into Leicester for a night out. We stumbled across a gem of a place called 1901 – The Turkey Cafe and so glad we did. We had 30mins to kill before our table at Marco’s New York Italian was ready and found this place just down the road.
From the outside it didn’t stand out, a small pavement seating area led to a slightly larger ‘inside-out’ area with wooden flooring and a few tables. The bar is found down the stairs in a lovely traditional speakeasy style basement. We had a swift beer, a fine Brooklyn Summer Ale, headed for our meal and promptly returned for more!
