Hunting for the best date night bars in Leeds? Look no further than the vibrant Latin vibes of CASA. Flaunting a menu of Colombian, Venezuelan, Peruvian and Mexican bites, alongside a lively upstairs area with live music and DJs, it's got everything you could ask for.

Chef Jono at V&V

Searching for a romantic bar in Leeds? Having been named as the 9th best cocktail den in the country, Vice & Virtue is an obvious choice. Drinks are whipped up from locally-sourced and foraged produce, while the interiors have been inspired by the Prohibition.

Shears Yard

Shears Yard may look unassuming from the outside, but step inside and you'll find a gorgeous bar and restaurant. Setting the scene with cool interiors, the Wharf Street eatery is sure to please with a seasonal drinks menu and homemade liquors. Plus, there's an outdoor terrace for the warmer months.

Blind Tyger

If your other half is a cocktail enthusiast, look no further than Blind Tyger. Bartenders at this Victorian-themed joint are serious pros, using some of the world's best ingredients to whip up incredible concoctions. Expect unusual mixes like a blackberry and rosemary Tom Collins or an Espresso Martini with sherry, bananas and chocolate. 


Classic drinks, chic furnishings and cityscape views to boot; SkyLounge is, arguably, the fanciest rooftop. Situated on the 13th floor of the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, this popular spot is ideal for a sunset date, whether you're working your magic on the outdoor terrace or one of their tables.

The Watermark

A heavyweight in Leeds' cocktail scene, The Watermark is offering two different date night spaces for the price of one. Upstairs, comfy couches and tables are matched with a menu of classic cocktails, small plates and charcuterie boards. Whilst downstairs, you'll find a more slinky scene and a selection of highball or lowball libations.
