Headrow House

3 user reviews 4

Headrow House is one of the best bar in Leeds city centre, housed in a former 1900's textile mill with an industrial vibe running throughout the space. Hunker down in the beer hall or chill out on the rooftop, with a long list of thirst-quenching tipples and tasty kebabs from Ox Club. 

The Box Leeds

Head over to Infirmary Street where The Box is serving up craft pints and gameday fun. The sports bar regularly screens all kinds of matches and has pool tables for some half-time larks, along with mega 20-inch pizzas to keep you fuelled up. 

Slug and Lettuce Leeds

Slug and Lettuce is one of the best Leeds city centre bars for many reasons. As well as being a great place to meet up with mates for after-work 2-4-1 cocktails, it's also well worth a visit for its bottomless brunch and afternoon tea options. 

This entertaining retro games bar is a great choice for laid-back evenings with mates or fun date nights in Leeds. Get yourself a local craft brew or themed cocktail from the bar before trying your hand at some of the many old-school consoles knocking around.
