The Live Rooms

The Live Rooms

The Live Rooms is Chester’s largest independent live music venue and nightclub, and is situated just a moment’s walk away from Chester’s railway station and main bus route.

The Live Rooms held its official launch night on Thursday, October 17th 2013 with a packed-out show featuring The View.

Our main room has hosted some of the biggest names in music from a diverse range of genres, whilst our side room provides an ideal space for smaller, more intimate shows. We also have an upstairs area which features a balcony with a VIP bar overlooking the main room.

The two rooms and the upstairs area can either be used separately or combined, allowing us to tailor The Live Rooms’ configuration for any event.
