    Granby street used to be the main shopping street in Leicester but since then many businesses have either stopped trading or moved.The vacant shops bring the tone of the area down and put off shoppers. Recent companies to move out or close include Game Station, La Tasca restaurant, Blacks, Burger King, Cecil Jacobs and chilli whites, at least 16 shops and offices in Granby Street, Leicester, are empty. The closures come despite a revamp which saw £3 million invested by the city council in paving, road layout and cycle lanes and the filling in of the underpass near the railway station, but shoppers and visitors were unimpressed. The roads have improved but nothing was spent on improving shops or deal with the piles of rubbish in alleyways. After three years of disruption from the work, businesses were struggling and the once vibrant street was at a low.
    So weather La Tasca was hit by this low or was another victim of recession is unclear.

    Access is a little bit dodgy due to being on the main strip in full view of cctv, but i managed to jump in and out without hitch
