University of Leeds has the largest Union building in the city, housing two bars, a café, supermarket and multiple smaller shops and food stalls. Old Bar, as the name suggests, is the traditional student watering hole for the University of Leeds. The pub-styled area is in the basement of the union, serving up a wide selection of ales, spirits and lagers. Perfect of a society meet up or a starting point for a night out.
As the heart of the Union building, Old Bar hosts weekly open mics and pub quizzes alongside pool tables and projected sports events, offering everything you’d need as a casual student. The pub grub menu also shows its understanding of their population, with everything from vegan and vegetarian options through to exotic meat burgers and Man v Food style challenges. For a traditionally-styled Yorkshire pub with its finger on the pulse of the student population, look no further (but come on, do venture a bit further).
