Our listings for Leeds pubs and bars will help you find the perfect venue for whatever type of drink or evening you have in mind. A vibrant city with a huge student population, Leeds has a wide range of establishments for traditional beers and ales, glamourous cocktail evenings, or balancing the alcohol with great food at the same time.
Craft beer fans and aficionados will be spoilt with the likes of North Bar, The Black Swan on Call Lane, and the many pubs and bars within a few minutes walk of Leeds train station - including the Head of Steam and Tapped. There’s also foodie venue Friends of Ham, and Indian street food bar Bundobust. That competition means you get the more unusual draft beers, IPAs and stouts than you might find in other cities, sometimes with a cost to match.
If champagne and cocktails are more to your tastes then both Angelica and Epernay champagne bar are also just a short walk from Leeds train station. If you need an oasis of peace and calm, you can try The Gin Garden at The New Ellington Hotel. Or add entertainment to your drinking with La Boheme.
You’ll need to look through our full listings to sample the huge range of Leeds pubs and bars. More gems include the Old Bridge Inn next door to the Kirkstall Brewery. There’s music, arts and beer at Nation of Shopkeepers and Belgrave Music Hall, pool and table tennis at the Roxy Ball Room, and so much more.
