First Date in Leeds
Right! You've done the hard bit, grafting away on Tinder and Whatsapp for a few days, planning the right emojis to use for your jokes and pretending to be more interesting, and now you need some first date bars in Leeds. We all need different things on a first date: some people want a fancy restaurant, others want a really fun bar to get stuck into, but no matter what, if you are on a first date in Leeds, we'll make sure you are having a great time.
Great food and drink are the building blocks of any great date. Just ask Banyan, who will be happy to supply you with a variety of delicious salads, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, sharing platters or more, washed down by a couple of great cocktails. And if it's sunny you can enjoy all that in their alfresco area.
Head to the City Centre where this unique bar and restaurant offers the perfect escape from the bustle of the streets. A cool, casual and decadently decorated hideaway in Albion Place, it's a dreamy spot for your and your date to sip on some botanical cocktails or internationally-inspired concoctions, and maybe stick around for some of their delicious food.
A great atmosphere is one thing for a first date in Leeds, but great cocktails have to come with it. Be At One have both in abundance, and not only can they offer you a series of fantastic cocktails shaken up by their master mixologists, you can get them at their unbeatable 2-4-1 happy hour offer.
For a laid back date bar in Leeds, The Belgrave Music Hall is here for you. Chocked full of live music, art exhibitions, film screenings and more craft beer than you could possibly drink, it's impossible to be bored here. And with a few tasty bites to eat, you've got a whole night of it.
There's no better way to prove that you deserve another date than a secret bar. This Leeds dating bar is just the spot, with prohibition interiors and a cocktail menu of adorable, Instagram-ready masterpieces served with greenery or in tea cups (if they're into that sort of thing).
If you wanna give out that sophisticated but fun-loving vibe, you're in luck. Dirty Martini not only has a mean happy hour (including £10 off bottles of prosecco – that'll make you popular), the atmosphere alone is bound to get those creative juices flowing.
You can't go wrong with a quirky first date bar in Leeds. If nothing else, you can talk about the colourful interiors, painted-stained animal heads on the walls, or murals painted by local artists. Otherwise, you can drink their craft beer giraffe sharers, signature cocktails, or pizzas cooked in their in-house oven.
For the stylish first date in Leeds – but for those who still love their cocktails – Manahatta should probably be on the list. The sleek interior is the perfect backdrop to get liquid courage from some great Old Fashioneds, and if it's going well you can stick by for food and dancing.
Speakeasy vibes in an industrial setting, Jake's is a cool place for a first date in Leeds. They've been brewing their own spirits for years, which means that along with the cool vibes from the brickwork walls and chesterfield sofas, you can get some unique drinks too.
Whether your lunch involves a midday lunch of huge American food washed down by milkshakes, or want to hang out in their cool New York rooftop bar come the night, your date here has a chance of going really well. One of the cooler places in the city, expect fun interiors and even more fun cocktails.
