Touting a specialist gin menu alongside and a plethora of lip-smacking concoctions, you can rely on The Wardrobe to keep you quenched. Make your way into this St Peter's Square venue adorned with quirky band posters, for its range of tasty bevvies.

If you're looking for fabulous cocktails then Casa Leeds has you covered. Clink your glasses and explore a taste of Brazil with a caipirinha made with cachaça, sugar, and lime. Or, try a Cuba libre, a classic highball made with coke and rum.

Blind Tyger features cosy booths to sink into, cool trinkets to look at and a whole load of Victorian lounge aesthetic. What's not to love? You can also sip on some of the classiest cocktails in Leeds, created using the finest ingredients around.

If you're after one of the best cocktail bars in Leeds city centre, then look no further than Smokestack. Bringing a taste of New Orleans to the city centre, this watering hole plays host to live funk, soul, blues and jazz performances, whilst offering rum and absinthe laced drinks.

A fine dining restaurant upstairs and an award-winning Leeds cocktail bar downstairs, Vice & Virtue are heavyweights in the city's drinking and dining scene. Venture down to the broody boozer where serves such as a Nordic spritz and bittersweet sour await.
