The space offers views across the city from within the restaurant or on the rooftop terrace. Interiorly Crafthouse pays homage to Leeds’ rich culture and heritage with space dividers inspired by looms and ceiling rafts reminiscent of fabric reams.

Our tip: For special celebrations, request the private dining room for an intimate meal exclusive to you and your guests. Continue the evening with drinks upstairs at Angelica’s bustling cocktail bar.

MEATLiquor

King of burgers? We can’t be bias, however we can say this burger joint is a heavy hitter. With a menu of monkey fingers, dead hippies and house grog this feisty venue shuts its doors to minors from 6pm. Open to adults all day and until the wee hours of the night, MEATliquor lives up to it’s name and offers a basement full of good times.

Our tip: Spice up your lunch and head to MEATLiquor for an epic lunch deal. Monday - Friday from 12pm - 5pm get yourself any burger, fries and a soda for just a tenner!

Roast & Conch

Browse the boutique for a delicate gift. Stroll to the bar for a cocoa-enhanced cocktail or two. Crack open a cocoa bean and stay for a chocolate-infused dinner. The options are endless and you could spend the whole day at Hotel Chocolat Roast+Conch, exploring all the amazing ways they work with cocoa. From their contemporary Anglo-West Indian menu to their coffee and cocktails, this place is a chocolate lover’s dream.

Top tip: Take a course in The School of Chocolate for an ultimate date night. You can learn the art of chocolate making in Hotel Chocolat’s Bean to Bar Experience, where their chocolatier will teach you how to roast and conch cocoa and guide you as you make your own bar of chocolate.

Take it to the next level with a Chocolate Tasting Adventure – a two-hour guided tour in which you’ll learn to taste it, pair it and discern the flavours of fine cocoa from around the world, with a delicious glass of their house Prosecco.

Pintura

Inspired by the vibrant, food-crazed culture of the Basque region, the modern pinchos and tapas restaurant expands across a gorgeous four floor venue. The menu is a fresh take on Basque and Spanish favourites, offering the finest imported Spanish produce married with the best seasonal ingredients. If you’re interested in formal seating you can request a comfortable booth, otherwise a seat at any of the two bars facing the kitchen and prep areas make for a casual yet exciting evening. The (somewhat) hidden gem here is Pintura’s basement floor, where you’ll find a buzzing gin bar with over 30 gins, impeccable cocktails and dim lighting making it the perfect all-night adventure.
