Long day in the office? Head out into Leeds for dinner and drinks after work. Meet up with friends, socialise, grab a bite or have a few beers; the city has a load of great spots to head to once you’ve clocked off. Here’s our top guide on where to go out after work in Leeds.
One of the newest but most popular after work hot spots in Leeds is The Alchemist. As part of the Leeds Trinity shopping centre, expect to see a wide ranging mix of revellers, from casual shoppers giving their legs a rest, to business-types winding down after a hectic day in the office. With tasty snacks and light bites available, you’ll find a great range of food on offer too, along with a relaxing and stylish ambience to relax and unwind.
Providing a post-work drink with a ‘grown-up’ vibe, Browns is conveniently located on the Headrow. With a wide range of cocktails, wines and lagers on tap, Browns has all office tastes covered. Be prepared to be met with by a packed bar at peak times, with weekends being a particularly busy time. However, drop in on a week night and you should be able to enjoy a more relaxing ambiance, quality English-style food and even a live pianist from time to time.
With locations at both the Electric Press near Millennium Square and on Call Lane, Revolution offers daily food and drink discounts between 5pm and 9pm. Head down on ‘Mega Mondays’ and you can enjoy 50% off food all day. With great offers to be snapped up, Revolution is the ideal place to head when you need to let your hair down with colleagues. While not seen as one of Leeds’ most trendy locations, it’s often hard to turn a good deal down.
Another of Leeds Trinity’s latest offerings, The Botanist provides a peculiar environment to enjoy your drinks. Located underground, the decor within the Botanist gives an earthy feel to the bar with potted plants lining the walls. With a diverse (and strange) selection of beverages including herbal ingredients such as Rosemary and Dill, the Botanist provides a modern and quirky twist on flavour. Prices for cocktails are reasonable for a city centre venue, ranging from £5 to £7 in most cases. Food options stay more traditional, with burgers and fish and chips being the pick of the menu.
Located on Boar Lane and attached to the Marriot Hotel, 1871 bar and lounge is a spacious and sophisticated spot to unwind after a long day in the office. Offering exposed brick surroundings decorated with stylish film artwork, you’ll soon find yourself relaxing and enjoying your early evening food and drinks in one of Leeds’ more discerning bars. Easily accessible and in the very centre of Leeds, 1871 is within walking distance of Leeds Trinity and the train station.
