You’d be forgiven for missing The Little Buddha Bar, even though it’s in the heart of Huddersfield’s Newsome, just minutes from the station. Hidden in the ranks of the railway arches along Viaduct Street, this gem is transforming Huddersfield’s late-night bar and live music scene. Hosting a wealth of local and touring talent, it’s also a place to mix and mingle in good company well-lubricated by good drink. The Little Buddha Bar has a big soul and is an underground spot that should be on your radar.
The Little Buddha Bar is an up-and-coming contender for that hallowed position in any city’s nightlife – the default, go-to destination when you’re up for a late night of good drink and better music. You can find this sleek Huddersfield party spot tucked into one of the railway arches along Viaduct Street, right by the station and an easy walk from most parts of Newsome. The emphasis here is on hip hop, soul, and grooves to make you move, and the bar is well-stocked to keep you fuelled, too.
Indeed, The Little Buddha Bar takes its name from the fat smiling chap that dominates the dark wooden bar, which thankfully keeps itself out of the way to make room for the dancers that throng this place come the weekend. The Little Buddha Bar is committed to transforming Huddersfield’s late-night drinks and dancing scene, and they’re doing well, peddling good times from their cosy premises under Viaduct Street’s railway arches, next door to a number of good spots for a bite to eat in Newsome (Gringo’s is a popular prelude or post-party prowl if you’re looking to line your stomach). Just minutes from the station, The Little Buddha Bar is a secret oasis that needs to be befriended.
