Jakes Bar, Call Lane

An ol’ classic bar in Leeds, and one that has been around since I can remember. I love Jakes on a weeknight for a relaxing cocktail or three, and I love to hear from the bar staff all about what they are making in their still named Tabitha. The cocktails are amazing, the atmosphere is chilled and who doesn’t want to stare at a still all night whilst drinking gin?

Just off Call Lane

Call Lane is packed full of bars, but sometimes the gems are slightly hidden… Tucked in the backstreets just off Call Lane is one of my favourite bars to visit; Hirsts Yard – the staff are friendly and chatty, plus they serve Red Stripe, which is always a winner. There’s comedy nights and open mic nights; but mostly it’s the friendly faces.
A new addition to the Call Lane area is Revolucion de Cuba, a swanky re-furbished bar that serves some of the best rum around, not to mention a whole lot of yummy tapas and cocktails in teapots.

Sneaky Experience, Kirkstall Abbey

Kirkstall Abbey is one of the most breath-taking sights in the North and is well worth a visit to wander around and take in the beauty; what’s even better is that a few times a year Sneaky Experience join forces with the Abbey to bring a festival style cinema experience to the grounds. From a fitting setting for Harry Potter with potion classes, to a spooky Halloween with a giant Wicker Man burning ceremony – it’s something you have to go to.

Bundobust, Mill Hill

New places to fill your tummy are arriving in Leeds every week, but one of my favourites to visit is Bundobust; Indian style veggie street food and good quality beers in a relaxed setting, what more could you ask for? Oh, and you can’t forget the good looking guys that seem to flock here too – but mostly it’s the well put together menus, mouth-watering food and simple dining.
