We can’t believe that time of the year has rolled back around already.
But the night feel like they’re getting longer by the day and judging by the temperature outside, it’s safe to say we’re definitely into the colder autumn months.
Whilst we’ll miss the sunshine, the thought of hanging out on a cosy terrace with a glass of mulled wine in hand or lounging on old leather armchairs tucking into a roast dinner is certainly one to look forward to.
And Green Room is set to offer just that.
The rooftop terrace will be covered to create a new Winter Garden space that really romanticises the seasons. Expect heat lamps covering the roof and fire pits in the corners, and a fully stocked bar serving the best local brands (chosen from Kirkstall Brewery, Wolfe Bros Gin, Northern Monk and wine experts Mathew Clarke) from the rooftop.
Drinkwise, we’re talking boozy hot chocolate with Amaretto, spiced rum, Bailey’s, whiskey and cherry liqueur to choose from, as well as the classic mulled cider and wines that we’ve all come to know and love over the years.
And of course as we approach Halloween, there will be specials like sweet and zesty Honey Pineapple Margarita, Bakewell Mi Tai and the boozy Dead Red Zombie to look forward to.
Foodwise there’s lots to look forward to.
Following on from the success of a winter residency at Boot and Rally in Meanwood, Braizin’ Squad is bringing back it’s Sunday roast – but this time it’s slap bang in the city centre.
Taking over the kitchen every Sunday from 24 September, Green Room will be hosting some of the best roasts around (yes, we mean it).
Expect the likes of herb-stuffed porchetta served in an apple cider jus on offer. Perfectly cooked with a soft yet crispy texture oozing with flavour, between this and the gorgeous served-pink grilled beef rump cap, any meat eater will agree that the roast options are really a feast perfect for the colder months of the year.
Veggies will have a butternut squash wellington to look forward to, with a mushroom and pumpkin gravy – autumn comfort food really doesn’t get better than this.
But that’s not all, plates are piled with a huge Yorkshire pud, grilled seasonal veggies and roast potatoes, plus sides that are well worth adding for those looking to add extra flavours to the classic weekend treat.
But if you can’t wait until the weekend to head over, every Monday and Tuesday will offer a delicious alternative from Homeboy Pizza Co.
Taking over the terrace for those early-week nights out (including quiz night every Tuesday), Homeboy will be serving its signature Neapolitan and New York-inspired pizzas.
Speaking ahead of the Winter Garden opening, Will Habergham said: ‘’After another phenomenal year that’s seen our brand grow and evolve in a really positive way, we’re really proud to present our Winter Garden in 2023. As well as some great collabs with some of our favourite brands, it’s also going to be the first time we’ve done a full Christmas menu and Braizin Squad has nailed it.’’
‘’We’re looking forward to an amazing autumn and winter season and can’t wait to get feedback from our guests.’’
