It’s been 18 years since Fibre first burst onto the Leeds scene and what an amazing journey it’s been! Reinventing itself through time Fibre now boasts itself as a 4 floor super bar on Lower Briggate, Leeds and see’s thousands come through it’s door each weekend.
The last 12 months have seen an incredible investment to ensure Fibre stays cutting edge, on point and enhancing the customer experience. Each level offers something different to ensure even the most fastidious of critics can be truly indulged.
This Friday, the bar begins a weekend long celebration of Fibre coming of age – their 18th Birthday!
Terry George, owner, says: “From the age of 17, I started out as a DJ in the Leeds club scene and made a career out of if for over 20 years. I spent many years at some of the biggest clubs such as Ritzy and Mr Craig’s. Back then, you couldn’t even wear jeans to a nightclub. For me, this meant that it would take opening my own venue to shake things up and take the first steps to modernise the city’s nightclub scene.
“In the year 2000, myself, Shaun Wilson and my life partner Michael Rothwell opened Bar Fibre. Our aim was to push the boundaries and bring people together in a safe environment regardless of sexuality. The rest is history.
“To this day, we still have a core set of customers who have been with us since day one. Alongside appealing to newer generations, Fibre has become more successful than we ever imagined. We still turn away as many customers as we let in!
“The longevity of our 18 years of success has always been down to knowing how to entertain people with brilliant creative concepts, hard-working staff and ideas that you simply just don’t see anywhere else. We are constantly reinventing the bar every three to four years to keep us at the top.
“It’s 2018, and I never thought that we would still be picking up awards. For the last 3 years, Fibre has received the the BACIL award for ‘Best Independent Venue’ & ‘Best Night Time Security Team’. The last 18 years have been a blast!”
Join Fibre from Friday 9th – Monday 12th November to celebrate 18 years of one of Leeds greatest bars.
