The Maven

You've walked down Call Lane so many times and never caught a glimpse of The Maven? This prohibition-style speakeasy is tucked away behind an unassuming door and has its own secret staircase. But once you've discovered the bar you'll be rewarded with devilishly delicious cocktails.

Located above Sandinista, Blind Tyger is a secret bar in Leeds serving up award-winning cocktails. Expect a Victorian lounge aesthetic with an abundance of quirky decorations and cosy booths, accompanied by a soundtrack of classy soul, jazz and blues.

Upstairs you'll find one of the city's best fine dining restaurants, but venture downstairs and you'll discover Vice & Virtue's speakeasy-style drinking den. Chic interiors are paired with quirky cocktails made with premium spirits and garnished to perfection.
