One of Leeds’ best bars is going on holiday… to visit another of the UK’s best bars

The year is 2024 and brilliant cross-venue collaborations are RIFE – and we’re bringing you news of another one.

One of Leeds’ best bars is teaming up with one of Manchester’s finest cocktail spots for a very special evening of drinking.

The brilliant team at Below Stairs will be making a trip across t’Pennines to visit their friends at Stray, a lovely cocktail bar in Mackie Mayor.

It’s the second instalment of their collaboration, with Stray popping up in the subterranean South Parade bar earlier this week.

Below Stairs were named Sustainable Bar of the Year at the Top 50 Cocktail Bars awards, and placed 27th overall.

They were beaten in Leeds only by Tabula Rasa, which made it to the 16th spot.

On the menu for their trip to Stray they’ll have some of their most popular concoctions.

The Below Stairs menu will include the Coco Mez – mezcal, sweet pepper, basil, cocoa butter and bubbles.

They’ll also serve a delicious Corn & Silk, made with Jack Daniels Old No. 7, Mellow Corn, Cereal Milk, BS Cornsilk and Meadowsweet Liqueur, Grand Josiene, and Oat Creme Fraiché.

A Dashi cocktail will be made with Somerset 3yr Old Cider Brandy, Pea Pod Vodka, Shiitake Dashi, Velvet Falernum, Sake, Bobbys Gin, Coconut, and Mushroom Leaf.

And there’ll be a fruity cocktail made with Ford’s Gin, with The Duchess also featuring Cambusier Raspberry Liqueur, Apricot, Duchess De Bourgogne, Angostura Bitter, and Lime Leaf.

Below Stairs will be behind the bar at Stray on Thursday 20 June from 6pm.
