This brand new Ibiza-themed bar in Kirkgate only just opened on the weekend, so why not head down this week as they embark on their first full week of opening. Expect a Mediterranean-inspired cocktail menu, an epic party atmosphere and regular live music to get you dancing into the night.

Think rattan chairs, turquoise walls adorned with striking neon signs and plush pink soft furnishings to nestle down in- the interior alone makes you feel as though you’ve hopped on a flight to the Balearics.

And the best part is, after you’ve completed the trail and located each mischievous bunny then you can trade in your map at the end for a delicious Easter treat and a pair of adorable rabbit ears.

On the first Sunday of every month there is an artisan food market in Ilkley that will absolutely blow your socks off. Hosted by Real Food Markets, you can expect a selection of the best stallholders in Yorkshire who will be selling an array of goodies for you to take home with you.

Whilst you’re there we urge you to stop by The Ilkley Kitchen to sample one of their epic sausage rolls, mammoth scotch eggs or irresistible sweet treats (the mini bundt cakes are to die for). We recommend picking up a few things, as you won’t be able to resist the temptation of tucking in right there on the spot.
