So it seems only right that someone so important to the very fabric of the venue should return to help them celebrate 25 years in the city.

Not only that, the bar will be closing mid-August for a mini-refurb and refit, with the venue’s beer selection to be stocked by Leeds’ own Kirkstall Brewery and Camden Town Brewery, who will be bringing some exclusive pours up north with them too. 

On Friday 20 September, they’ll be hosting a huge birthday party with a great lineup of DJs featuring a few familiar faces.
