Named after a reference to Margaret Thatcher, Nation of Shopkeepers takes a deliberately subversive stance to the ‘status quo’, with a hipster attitude and Public Enemy quotes across the walls. While this first description may come across as a tad gauche, Nation of Shopkeepers doesn’t let its rebellious streak interfere with being a damn strong bar worthy of its mantle as a Leeds institution for both its welcoming student atmosphere and as a great music venue.

There are a lot of nice touches to Nation of Shopkeepers, which food-wise include healthy portions of lip-smacking, finger-licking food like burgers (it's two-for-one on these every Tuesday), fried chicken, mac 'n' cheese, loaded frieds and nachos, along with Sunday roasts, brunch staples, lunch deals and suitably ridiculous desserts such as chocolate pizza and cheesecake served in a jar. 

Another favourite aspect is their window of opportunity, where they showcase installations from a wide variety of artists in their mock shop front. [Edy Hurst]
