The Queen Victoria Arts Club is an elegant, opulent and stately restaurant and members' club and is the centrepiece of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter. Originally built in 1897 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, the Queen's Building is Grade II Listed and has been sympathetically restored into a polished restaurant for casual dining and a bar with the ambience and trimmings of a long-established Arts Club. The 'Queen Vic' exemplifies the modern British menu with a design of seductively selected dishes, a replete body of cocktails and a sweeping range of wines and champagnes.
The Queen Victoria Arts Club covers two floors and initially welcomes guests into a fifty-cover restaurant lighted by floor-to-ceiling windows facing onto Orton Square, which is complimented with two private rooms. Downstairs, the basement is decadently clandestine, seating fifty covers for members' only events and private bookings, completed with an intimate bar. The two exclusive rooms, the 'Leopold' and the 'Beatrice' (Queen Victoria's youngest son and daughter), allow for groups of ten to twenty, each with exclusive Wi-Fi connections and presentation screens for meetings, seminars and private celebrations.
