The only thing better than getting a cocktail is getting two for the price of one.
Leeds has well over 100 cocktail bars in the city centre alone, so when it comes to choosing a place to spend the evening sipping on boozy concoctions of sweet, spicy and source: it’s a challenge. Turns out, there are plenty of bars around Leeds that are not only offering a range of classic cocktails and some new boozy flavours on a 2-for-1 offer.
Ranging from Happy Hour specials to all day, everyday mixer deals, we’ve rounded up the best 2-for-1 deals in and around Leeds so you can have a night out on a budget, or just enjoy twice as many cocktails as usual.
Manahatta’s menu is split into three sections for each phase of the night, but all are included in the 2-for-1 offer. Choose from the ‘Glamour Edit’ for your pre-drink cocktail fix, then make a selection from the ‘Style Edit’ to get you through a selfie or two before grabbing a spritz or two from the ‘Party Edit’ and dancing until the early hours.
The 2-for-1 offer is available Sunday – Thursday all day and every Friday until 7pm.
The East Village
The East Village is one of those Hyde Park hidden gems where the booze is so strong, some cocktails are limited to two per person. The ‘Candy Hour’ selection offers tropical mixes like Pina-Can-Lada with coconut rum, Lilt and coconuts, as well as classic cocktails like the Spiced Mule and Mango Bellinis.
If you want to start or end your night out in style, the 2-for-1 deal lasts all night long to make sure you can get your value drinks at whatever hour you need them the most.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are the nights to get down to Ten Bar and make the most of the 2-for-1 deals, but there are plenty of offers on each evening.
All you need to do is order two of the same cocktails to make the most of Bower’s Taps 2-for-1 offer.
