Opposite cafe in Chapel Allerton to host pop-up cocktail evenings all summer long

Came in for a coffee, left with a cocktail

The neighbourhood coffee shop will collaborate with a Yorkshire cocktail brand and operate as a bottle shop by day, cocktail bar by night.

Opposite, locally known as ‘the pioneering force behind Leeds’ speciality coffee scene’, recently opened its second site in Meanwood this April and has already proved a huge hit amongst locals.

Known of course for their incredible coffee as well as their fantastic brunch offering, they’re now dipping their toe into the cocktail scene for the summer.

And we absolutely cannot wait.

From Saturday 1 June, each Friday and Saturday night throughout June and July, visitors can enjoy hand-crafted cocktails at Opposite in the heart of Chapel Allerton.

Blank Canvas Drinks, which are handmade right here in Leeds, is teaming up with Opposite to offer a monthly menu of fourteen hand-mixed cocktails this summer including crowd-favourite Espresso Martinis, made with Opposite’s very own coffee.

From 6pm until midnight, Opposite will be transformed into a table-service cocktail bar serving a range of tipples as well as bar snacks from local makers George and Joseph, Skog Bakehouse and more.

Running for a total of 17 nights, the menu will change from June into July, from Margaritas and Mai Tais to custom creations, like a Camino Tropico or Ruby Swizzle, there will be something for everyone to sip on including non-alcoholic cocktails.

Visitors will also be able to pick up a bottle of their favourite cocktail from Opposite during the day, which they can take home to enjoy.
