Leeds Gets All-New Brunch Spot And Cocktail Lounge, Iroko


Last updated . By Georgia Evans.

Created by the minds behind Roland’s and The Domino Club, Iroko is a cafe by day and trendy lounge bar by night. Located right in the heart of the city, this hip hangout is a multi-functional space boasting floor-to-ceiling windows, cosy leather booths and a long marble-topped bar giving it a contemporary chic feel.

Offering diners the best of both worlds, Iroko's brunch menu boasts brekkie classics such as blueberry oat porridge, homemade beans on toast and breakfast rolls to enjoy alongside local coffee blends and breakfast cocktails. By 4:30 pm, the space is then reinvented as mixologists take over and the music is cranked up for the evening crowds.

Iroko’s eclectic wine list features 30 handpicked bottles, featuring the ‘break even bottle’ a popular scheme at the owner's other venues where exceptional cases of wine are sold at cost price, making delicious tipples more affordable. There’s also an extensive menu of classic cocktails with an Iroko twist, including a Pisco Sour with fennel syrup and Vespers made with Douglas Fir tree vodka for a little extra edge.
