Over the past ten years or so, Leeds has gained itself a great reputation for bars and night clubs, turning what used to be only a shopping destination, into one of the most celebrated nights out in Northern England.
So, with that in mind, here are the top five cocktail bars in Leeds:
After opening its doors just a few months ago at Brewery Warf, 212 has quickly become one of the most stylish and happening bars in the centre of Leeds.
Serving an array of fabulous cocktails, alongside a gorgeous range of pies, the bar enjoys a chilled atmosphere throughout the day before turning into a full blown nightclub (turntables only) around 8pm.
One of four bars found throughout the UK, The Alchemist in Leeds can be found in the newly opened Trinity Shopping Centre.
Although it is only 12 months old, the bar has quickly garnered a respectable reputation among the 20-somethings of the city and is especially celebrated for its chilled rooftop terrace.
The bar is open all day for coffee before offering up some of the best cocktails in Leeds come evening time.
Found on the foot of Call Lane, Baracoa Luxe is one of the largest, yet most glamorous cocktail bars in Leeds.
Established in 2010, the bar is the perfect place for after work cocktails as well as somewhere to hang out long after the sun has gone down.
If you’re interested, the bar also holds ‘cocktail classes’ so that you can learn how to make some of the world’s best cocktails.
Call Lane Social
Another great bar located by the calls, Call Lane Social can be one of the busiest cocktail bars in Leeds as it proves time and time again what makes it so special.
A winner of the “best newcomer” award at the Leeds Bar and Club Awards, the bar serves a range of adventurous and alternative cocktails that keeps the bar the go-to-place every single weekend.
