Our City - Leeds

Leeds has reinvented itself as a top destination for the ultimate city break. A proud home to a vast collection of sophisticated and quirky hangouts, the hustle and bustle of Leeds attracts both city slickers and creatives alike.

 

An ever-evolving city, Leeds is bursting at the seams with incredible restaurants, cocktail bars, art exhibitions and shop, whether you're on a budget or don't have one at all.

Stay...

 

Quebecs

Tucked away just a stone throw from the city's main train station and in the heart of the city centre. Quebecs oozes elegance and style. Splash out on ‘The Suite’ – indulgently spacious..

Air Bnb

Prices from £155 pn

Leeds' first arty hostel; based on the oldest street in Leeds, this is not your typical grubby hostel. Leeds' quirky new East Street Arts Project is the perfect stopover and base for creative types visiting the city.

Beds from £25pn

Eat...

 

We finally have our Michelin star back and well deserved it is too. The eccentric Head Chef Michael O’Hare has taken the Leeds food scene by storm.

The menu is eclectic and defies logic in every sense but its pulled off perfectly. With a well-rounded and affordable wine list to boot you really have no excuse not to give this place a shot! You need to be super organised though and plan ahead, this place is booked up six months in advance.

Shears Yard

Very much on-trend, this well-established eatery on The Calls is well known for its boozy brunches which are swilled down perfectly with a choice of unlimited drinks for 90 minutes. Featuring Leeds brewed ales, Prosecco, an English take on the French75 and spicy Bloody Marys!

 

It's nice to find something that bit different and Shears Yard fits the bill perfectly.

Zaap

On Vicar Lane, Zaap has done a great job at bringing Bangkok to Leeds. Thai street food inspired Zaap brings the bustle and mayhem of Bangkok to the heart of the city. Its chaotic charm of tuk-tuks, neon lights and reclaimed street signs all help form a fun and informal atmosphere.

Drink...

 

Angelica

 

D&D group's first UK site out of London has been a huge success in Leeds, with 2017 seeing the group opening two new sites in the summer! Much more famed for their cocktails than their food offering, this swanky venue features an olive tree filled roof terrace overlooking the city and hosts a number of summer terrace parties with world renowned DJs, including Dimitri from Paris.

 

Headrow House

 

A relatively new kid on the block, this multi-purpose venue is spread over three floors and is home to four huge copper beer tanks which are refilled weekly with Pilsner Urquell delivered directly from the brewery in Europe.

Head upstairs to the Ox Club already featured in the Michelin guide for 2017. The roof houses the biggest two tier roof terrace in Leeds, a perfect summer weekend hang out.

Shop...

 

Lambert's Yard

The home of independent fashion, home to Native Youth, J.Lindeberg, and Wood Wood mixed in with lifestyle brands such as HAM and of course Hamilton. This diverse venue doubles up as an events space ideal for brand launches and private parties.

The HIP Store

Chop...

 

No other than King Koby Chop Shop, not just a barbershop, it’s something special, a family, a brotherhood, a movement. Not only have they just launched their second shop in the city but also their own apparel line!

 

Be sure to check them out, these boys will go far!
