Leeds institution Latitude is opening a wine bar in Leeds City Centre

Opening in 2024.

Having outgrown the arches, Latitude is moving to a larger space on The Calls with the exciting addition of a seating area.

Latitude has become a real go-to for all things boozy over the past 15 years. First opening under the arches back in 2008, the store has grown from showcasing around 440 products to a whopping 1900+.

Now with five times its original stock, and over 9000 loyal customers, the 660 sq ft flagship store has become rather cramped, and now owner Chris Hill is taking the leap to open a brand new space that will allow him to not only stock even more of the wines and spirits that we know and love Latitude for, but also incorporate its very own wine bar.

Based just 200 metres from where it all began, Latitude will be  moving into 46 The Calls, becoming neighbours with KAPOW! Coffee, Screen Yorkshire, and Yorkshire Design Group  the new Latitude Tasting Room and shop will allow locals from near and far to pop in for a tipple of their choice, seven days a week.

The idea is that the space will be designed and purpose built by and for wine and spirit lovers and it is hoped that Latitude can add something different to the Leeds nightlife scene.

Expect wine by the glass, and ever-evolving specials served as the sun goes down, with a choice of 900 different bottles for a small corkage fee. Meanwhile, the spirits list aims to give customers a change to try flavours and brands that they wouldn’t usually be able to – and of course there will by plenty of opportunities to buy the bottles you taste test too.

Pairing perfectly with the wine list, cheese and charcuterie boards will be available throughout the evening, and you’ll find a carefully curated list of events for foodies and wannabe sommeliers alike.

Owner Max Whisker said: ” After over 25 years working in (and with) some of Leeds finest bars and restaurants I cannot wait to have an actual proper bar to serve behind. Expect the finest cheese and charcuterie, a small but focused cocktail menu made with only the finest ingredients, and an opportunity to try any one of thousands of products on our (brand new) shelves”.
