How to beat the Sunday blues in Leeds
Sunday, it might as well not be the weekend with that thing called Monday hanging over it. But it could be your favourite day of the week. If you live in Leeds, in fact, it can quite easily be your favourite day of the week. Forget about what lies ahead and soak Sunday in with our pick of the best in this great northern city.

Sunday in the Smokestack

One of the funkiest spots in town just got funkier with the Bullfrog Blues. Head down to 159A Lower Briggate at 8pm on a Sunday night and you won’t stop movin’ until Tuesday. Guaranteed. <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d2356.657597670639!2d-1.5444990839528876!3d53.79558144866713!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x48795c190f8c6861%3A0x464346db4c12b459!2sSmokestack+Bar+And+Club!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1467800226750" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

Sunday snacks in Trinity Kitchen

Leeds was already famous for shopping, but Trinity took it to the next level (both literally and metaphorically) in 2013. The Kitchen upstairs is one of the best things about the city; it boasts some of the best international street food you’ll find in Britain, so it’s the perfect place to transport yourself to another world. <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m14!1m8!1m3!1d9426.249744740997!2d-1.545481!3d53.797275!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x0%3A0x9c41156194868af2!2sTrinity+Kitchen!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1467800286405" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

Sunday Joint in HiFi

Sunday night in HiFi is legendary in Leeds – and for good reason. It’s played host to some of the world’s best musicians in the funk, reggae, Latin and salsa scenes, so why would you want to do anything else on a Sunday? <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d2356.625659226007!2d-1.5434244839528268!3d53.79614984862443!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x48795c19994874df%3A0x83db49e8244c3ee6!2sHifi+Club!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1467800314760" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

Sunday afternoon in Alfred

Head out of the city and into the suburb of Meanwood and you’ll find perhaps the greatest Sunday afternoon bar in the world. Alfred, which is part of the local North Bar group, is small enough in floor space to be your living room, yet big enough in character to be your favourite watering hole for life. <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d2354.8230820710364!2d-1.56869968395199!3d53.82822314620786!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x48795944cb63076d%3A0x25cd5b311325df51!2sAlfred!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1467800341553" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

A Sunday stroll down the River Aire

Running right through the city, the River Aire is a top place to be on a sunny Sunday. Take a walk down the waterfront to take your mind off the week of work ahead and just enjoy being alive. <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d1179.7010811984935!2d-1.3938416916276621!3d53.746721731156605!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x4879428a6c4772ff%3A0x6b9538697230cec4!2sRiver+Aire!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1467800382069" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

Sunday roast at The Midnight Bell

Roast dinners, or good roast dinners, are a little difficult to find in Leeds, but the one at The Midnight Bell is magnificent. A proper good pub with proper good grub. What more can you ask for? <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d2356.8758674678134!2d-1.5539662839529946!3d53.791696848959816!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x48795e9ffe836591%3A0x72e7b6a6560f61bc!2sThe+Midnight+Bell!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1467800415905" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

Sunday (bottomless) brunch at Shears Yard

For a brunch with a difference, Shears Yard is the place to be. They have just launched a bottomless brunch, which includes bottomless booze, on Sundays. All you have to do is hand over £25 and you can fill your boots. <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m14!1m8!1m3!1d9426.725092561544!2d-1.5381167!3d53.7951601!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x0%3A0x3b00c9268cc83549!2sShears+Yard!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1467800445253" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>
