Remember The Box’s giant beer towers from the Euros? Well they’re back.
The Box have locations in the city centre and Headingley, so you’re never far from a cold pint of Budweiser or a bottle of wine. You can grab 2-for-1 cocktails, a 20% student discount and a pornstar martinis, served by the stein here too but if that’s not enough, they’re showing the Six Nations games in style.
At nearly a metre high, the towers of beer here are absolutely huge and available during Six Nations games. They also add a little bit of fun in that you can pour your own pints from them at your table.
Drinkers in Leeds can get their hands on the giant towers at Box bar, an award-winning sports bar with two sites in Leeds: one in the city centre and the other in Headingley. If you’re spending a day out in the suburbs watching the sports fixtures, this is definitely the spot to be.
As well as serving up the giant towers of beer, the bar will also be dishing out their legendary BOX pizzas and a whole menu of Six Nations inspired food.
On the menu is a double beef burger, garlic mushrooms, crispy onions, deep fried Brie and peppercorn sauce. Inspired by the Parisian streets and the beautiful game everyone has come together to watch, the Burger De Paris is guaranteed to be a bestseller this month.
Wales is celebrated with some deliciously loaded fries. Expect triple-cooked chips, spiced lamb, cheesy creamed leeks, crispy onions and with a signature spicy sauce drizzled over the top.
Obviously us Brits got fish and chips and we’re not complaining about getting our hands on those crispy cod bites, triple-cooked chips with tartare and curry sauce. The perfect food for a sports bar is small, picky food that can be chomped down at half time or grazed on as the match goes on and this dish is the epitome of both these options.
Italy got the pizza dish, surprisingly. This isn’t your regular margarita though, expect a basil pesto base with fior di latte, roast cherry tomatoes, mascarpone and rocket on top. You’ve got the colours of the Italian flag, all using traditional ingredients: not a bad choice for a mid-match snack.
Naturally, Ireland’s menu item was an alcoholic beverage with whiskey in. The Irish mule is a concoction of Slane Irish Whiskey, ginger ale and orange that’ll transport you to the backstreets of Dublin in no time. The Scottish option is also booze-based, but this one comes in the form of a refreshing spritz. Think Johnnie Walker Black label, Cocchi Americano, honey, apple and topped with ice and soda.
If the specials aren’t for you, other menu items to try here include their crispy fried katsu chicken pizza and long-standing BOX favourites like their towering Boxster burger, chicken shawarma kebab and steak frites.
The pub is showing all the Six Nations games with commentary, and bookings are very much recommended – although the venue does promise that every seat in BOX has a solid view of the action.
Let’s be honest, you’ll probably want something to wash all that beer down with.
