Went for my birthday, got free champagne on our arrival into bar risa just for sending a message on Facebook to get on guestlist, the DJ made a fuss of us as soon as we walked in, music was great and we ended up staying in there all night!

Booked food and drinks for some Friday night fun...having been to a Comedy Club at the Yorkshire Playhouse on a Sunday last year, was looking forward to starting the weekend off with fun. 1. Do not confuse the Friday night at Bar Risa's (alleged) night club with the fantastic venue at The West Yorkshire Playhouse. They are different events and... More

Not a bad place but seriously needs to get the floors into the ladies bathroom fixed. I was in no way drunk as I am pregnant and nearly went flying due to the chunks missing out of the floor that didn't even have any warning signs and watched another girl do the same thing. At least get some warning signs... More

Many people watch stand up on TV or at established clubs like the Comedy Store in London and hope for the same at Jongleurs. Don't expect it unfortunetly. The stand up is usually vulgar and terrible, the food is awful and they cram you in like sardines for really poor quality comedy from amature "we just need somebody cheap" entertainers.... More

First time at the Jongleurs on Saturday 19 Sept. Had a great night and will definately go again. There were 6 comedians most were really good although you do need to be broad minded for some of the jokes! The show was fast paced and the comperes were excellent. The food was Ok. Typical fast food but for just over... More

Anyone who is thinking of Going on a Stag Doo to Leeds and visiting Jongleurs comedy club - DON'T BOTHER!!! Check out theIr Website: "Eat, drink, laugh and dance all in one venue at Jongleurs for the ultimate stag night" What they don't tell you is that you're not allowed to talk, and not allowed to give any light hearted...

Me and my partner went to jongleurs for his birthday and we had a really good time. I was a little nervous as i had read loads of bad reviews about it but we had a right laugh! the comedians were really funny and had us in stitches! the drinks were a little pricey though at 12 pound a pitcher....
