The best cocktail bars in Leeds

The best cocktail bars in Leeds | Northern BloodErrybody loves cocktails, am I right? These wonderful little beauties make the world go round (especially on a Friday night, if you know what I mean)! Thankfully, Leeds has one of the best bar scenes in the UK, which means there are plenty of cocktails to go around. Here are 5 of my favourite cocktail bars in Leeds.

Jake’s Bar

What’s not to love about a bar which distills its own spirits? A Call Lane staple, Jake’s has a fantastic atmosphere and a rather cracking music selection. Their gin numbers are a particular favourite of mine, because let’s be honest, who doesn’t love gin?

Vice & Virtue

One of the classier places in Leeds, Vice & Virtue feels like a relatively new addition to the city. Not only does it hold an incredible lounge bar serving up decadent cocktails, it also features a stunning restaurant with some of the prettiest dishes you’ll ever lay eyes on. Got a special occasion? This is the one for you.

Pintura

I LOVE Pintura. Tapas and endless gin? It sounds like heaven to me. With a basement bar devoted to drinking, there’s an extensive cocktail list for you to work through. Fancying something a bit simpler? Choose from over 100 gins and have a classic G&T.

53 Degrees North

Another new addition to the scene, 53 Degrees North has certainly made an impression. A stunning bar taking the corner of Goodbard House on Infirmary Street, they serve up some incredible cocktails. Have your camera at the ready, because you’ll definitely be instagramming these bad boys.

Chida Cantina

Does it count if the place isn’t even open yet? I say yes. Chida Cantina will be filling the space left by Sandanista by serving up an incredible selection of tequila. From what I’ve sampled, their cocktails are definitely going to become a Leeds favourite.
