Home of the Tetley’s brewery for almost 200 years, Leeds has a longstanding tradition with beer drinking and the city centre is abundant with traditional real ale pubs. Find your favourite down the cobbled alleyways that run along Briggate, the city’s central shopping street. Whitelock’s, Leeds oldest pub, is a must-visit; remaining relatively unchanged since the pulling of its first pint back in 1886.
If sophisticated cocktail bars are more your thing, prepare to be spoiled for choice. Our favourites are the exclusive Angelica and experimental eatery The Alchemist whose perfect pairing of an innovative and extensive cocktail list with stunning rooftop views are sure to impress. Continue the night on Leeds’ most infamous bar-lined street: Call Lane and end up in one of the city’s many nightclubs; from Pryzm, the largest nightclub in Leeds, to Mission, an underground playground housed under the city’s sprawling railway arches.
If this seems far too traditional a scene, there are plenty of hidden treasures to be found in Leeds. From basement bars to renovated warehouses, Leeds is perhaps the only city where you can start your night boozing in a bowling alley and end it raving in an adandoned church.
Leeds is also home to one of the country’s liveliest LGBT scenes. From friendly pubs to late-night clubs; there is plenty for all to enjoy along The Calls and Lower Briggate.
