Cool music and lots of personality are the elements that make NicenSleazy a great hangout for those with a strong, arty, creative personality.
NicenSleazy is a colourful and lively place. The venue spreads over two floors. The basement is a club and it’s almost entirely painted red. Long benches run along the walls and the tables have red and black tops. There’s a disco ball and a second bar, lit with red lights. On the ground-floor NicenSleazy offers plenty of seats and you can sit by the bar on high stools, or occupy one of the large grey booths.
There are also couches with retro chairs and velvet upholstery. On the walls bright colours dominate and every available surface has been painted, including the ceiling and there are framed artworks hanging everywhere. Even the lampshades, made of thick paper, are decorated with colourful patterns.
The club may not be in tip-top shape but nobody cares. It's the crowd and the atmosphere that make a trip to NicenSleazy worth it. This place gathers cool art types in their twenties and thirties. You'll see plenty of people in vintage outfits, checkered shirts and graphic T-shirts. One of the main reasons people come here is for the music as there’s regular DJs and bands on.
The basement is a proper club with a dancefloor where DJs not only spin music, but put on a real show thanks to dedicated light installations.
At NicenSleazy the acts are varied and you won't hear the same thing twice. They have regular nights playing a mix of oldskool indie, 60s garage, soul, rock'n'roll and everything else in between. Two DJs can be on duty at the same time, one on each floor, giving you the option to move around according to what you want to listen to.
The Food and Drink
There's something for everyone on the menu as they cater for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans. As well as snacks, like garlic bread, baked potatoes (£2.95) and wedges (£3.85), there are more substantial main meals like burgers for around £5 and burritos for £5.35 or homemade lasagna, available as either meat or veggie and priced at around £5.
NicenSleazy keeps customers sweet by having great drinks deals. The selection is nothing special, they serve regular beers, liqueurs and spirits and a few bottles of wine. However, you'll still want to drink here since they have constant deals such as £1.50 for a bottle of Kronenbourg, £8 for a four-pint jug of Fosters and only £2 for a black or white Russian. And if you look at the signs behind the bar, you'll discover they have more deals on offer. They also serve Red Stripe, Corona, Miller, American Budweiser and organic Samuel Smith’s Cherry Beer.
The Last Word
