This new Leeds bar offers the ‘fastest served cocktails in the city’

Newly-opened SALT Craft + Falafel at Granary Wharf is the place for speedy drinks served at an unbeatable location.

There’s few spots in Leeds where a post-work drink before the train is possible, but we’ve found a place where you can grab some of the fastest pours in the city.

Picture the scene.

It’s a Wednesday afternoon and you’ve got post-work drinks on your mind. The only thought that’s going to get you through the next few hours at the office. We know your type- you’ve got a train to catch at 6pm so you need to be in and out within the hour. No time for queuing up at the bar.

Why waste your precious hour between work and the train travelling across town, only to have to wait twenty minutes to be served. And if you want a cocktail, well forget it- there’s no way you can get one in time.

Hangry and frustrated, you reluctantly head to the train station for a lukewarm pint in an old bar that has an ungodly smell about it and reside yourself to the fact that post-work drinks were only made for those that can afford to spend all night in the city, not commuters like you.

We’ve all been this person at one point or another. And well, it sucks.

Finally, a bar has spotted this gap in the market and is changing the post-work drinks scene for the better. SALT, with a newly opened site at Granary Wharf, is serving up the fastest cocktails in the city- and we’re genuinely ecstatic about the concept.

Bringing draught cocktails to the masses, their canalside bar is the perfect spot to unwind after a long day of grafting in the city centre.

Grab a seat and lazily unwind in a cosy nook of the circular-shaped seating area or grab a sun-drenched spot next to the windows where light just floods in.

Located in the former Craft Asylum bar, with the steady stream of water from the Leeds-Liverpool canal at eye-level , SALT Craft + Falafel is all about providing those post-work drink essentials: speedy drinks in a picturesque location.

The bar area itself is comfy enough you could stay all evening long, especially once the nights draw in later and the sun shines through the clouds without stormy skies superseding.

Grab a glass of Espresso Martini or Strawberry Cosmopolitans within seconds thanks to the selection of seven ‘on tap’ cocktails- which take the same amount of time as a pint to pull, mind-blowing.

If that’s not enough, all cocktails are 2 for £12 all day, every day.

It’s not just cocktails that SALT Craft + Falafel is making a name with. Those that have carefully listened to the name will have noticed that this bar is all about craft beers, and SALT have them in abundance.

Living by the slogan ‘the purpose of beer is to create pleasure’, it’s clear that these guys are passionate about their drinks. Expect award-winning hop forward beers alongside Ossett Brewery cask, YON Lager, local guest breweries and more- all poured before your next train is due.

Locally famous street vendors Falafel Guys have set up in the kitchen here, so you won’t even have to duck out for food if you decide to let post-work drinks turn into an evening in town.

The Halal menu offers Middle Eastern cuisine at its finest. There’s serving up chunky grilled halloumi, three types of hummus, as well as falafels, chicken wings, halloumi fries and chicken shawarma to choose from.

Even if you allow the evening to run away with you, the former Craft Asylum building is only a few short steps from the South Exit of Leeds Train Station.

We really can’t recommend a better spot for long afternoons, cocktail or craft beer in hand- it’s certainly the post-work treat that we look forward to, no matter where in Leeds (or further afield) we’re heading home to.
