Spring has Sprung!

2016 is already shaping up to be one of the biggest years Leeds has had for quite some time, with a number of bars, restaurants and of course Victoria Gate, all set to make this northern powerhouse even more appealing. As you’d expect, Pink Gorilla and Hairy Lemon have been at the forefront of all the action, launching several exciting new ventures before spring has even sprung.

Hedonistic pleasure

As promised, The Hedonist Project boys are back with a new concept that’s set to titillate the tastebuds of the city’s night owls. As The Liquour Store & Whisky Parlour says a boozy farewell, in steps Old Tom’s Gin Kitchen, armed with an arsenal of cutting-edge cocktails, including the Vera Lynn and a rather dapper concoction garnished with a bow tie.

The food menu is also bursting with a range of tasty morsels, and will include fresh seafood, soups and salads befitting of the season. Enjoy this hot new joint whilst you can, as the boys now permanent spot will keep on revolving themes every three months – you know what they say; to be here today, you need to be gone tomorrow…

It’s getting hot in The Kitchen…

Oracle Bar unveiled a subtle new makeover over the Easter bank holiday to great success. The stark, white interior has been given a bit of warmth in the shape of some stunning reclaimed wood, which also coincides with the launch of The Kitchen. Out go the gourmet burgers and in comes a rota of cutting edge street food vendors, including Fat Annie’s Hotdogs and Man Meets Fire.

Those in favour of a liquid lunch will not be disappointed either, as every Saturday 12-14pm is Bubbles and Brunch, where a mere twenty quid provides you with a main meal, a Bellini and a bottomless prosecco. DJ’s will be on hand to spin a selection of upfront tunes to get you in the mood for summer – reserve your table now!

Mr Who?

Whilst we were sad to see Rare go, we’re glad to have met Mr Nobody, who takes up residence in the Lower Briggate joint. The brainchild of three entrepreneurial Sheffield lads, foodies can expect a very different take on tapas in a laidback and unpretentious environment. The small plates range from posh fish and chips to frogs legs with soy, which is what happens when you get a chef that’s worked in no less than 11 Michelin star restaurants.

The bar and outdoor terrace will play an eclectic mixture of upbeat music, welcoming in revellers who prefer a cocktail or three instead of food. Mr Nobody has already attracted a loyal bunch of followers and is a welcome addition to the city.
