This is the perfect spot for a drink, regardless of where you’re heading tonight (or any night really).
There’s very few bars in Leeds that we can confidently say are within walking distance of just about anything.
But whether you’re heading up to watch live music at the O2 Academy or First Direct Arena, or have dinner reservations at a romantic restaurant in the Victoria Quarter, you never seem to be more than a ten minute walk away from SALT Leeds City.
The award-winning bar company set up in the heart of Leeds back in 2021 to offer a non-stop service of cocktails and locally-brewed draught beers, and has been a go-to for those looking for a drink in the city ever since.
Located on East Parade, SALT is a stone’s throw from some of the city’s best live music venues, round the corner from nightlife hotspots like Greek Street or just ten minutes from Call Lane and Merrion Street.
Those shopping can find their way to Trinity in five, the Corn Exchange in ten and hop on a train, arriving at the train station just four minutes after leaving the venue.
If this isn’t a bar that’s right in the middle of everything you need- we’re not sure what is.
But you needn’t stay for just one pint.
The exposed-brick and flower-adorned setting is perfect for whiling the night away – and it’s likely that even if you’re only popping in for one drink, you’ll stay for the lively atmosphere, quick service and friendly staff.
Grab yourself a pint of SALT Beer Factory’s own, or opt for a delicious ‘on-tap’ cocktail that’s poured straight from the tap. The fruity, sweet and sour boozy concoctions are always on 2 for £12, so you’re guaranteed to bag yourself an inexpensive drink, and you don’t have to wait around for hours whilst bartenders faff around shaking up drinks- you’ll get your drink within seconds of ordering.
Alternatively if you’re sharing, the cocktail trees are the perfect option. Brought straight to your table, you can get yourself eight different classic cocktails like Espresso Martinis and spritz aplenty on a stunning tree that’ll keep you going all night long.
This also means that you’ll never find a huge queue at the bar, and on a busy Friday or Saturday night, you can spend less time hanging about and more time enjoying the live DJ spinning tracks and catching up with your nearest and dearest.
Between the outdoor sun trap that has punters lined up from the first sighting of spring, and the huge indoor space, this place is perfect for hiring out for your whole extended team of workmates, friends, family and even dogs. Hire is completely free of charge and simply means you can celebrate your birthday, anniversary, work milestones (or just a Tuesday if you really want to) without any extra expenses.
Best of all, you can hire SALT Leeds out every single day of the week- and with many smaller bars closed during the early week period, it’s a great alternative space that you can make your own for any given occasion.
