The best beer bars in the city

Posted on:

If you’re heading for a night out in the city, the chances are that bars and clubs won’t be tough to find. However, if you’re after something a bit more specific from your drinking location, and don’t just want to follow the crowd, we have you covered. Cocktail bars and standard lagers are available in abundance in all major cities, however in an age where most of us look for something a little more refined in our drinks, many new establishments have seen growing success from serving craft brews. If you’re after a good craft serving bar to kick off your night before heading onto the major city centre venues, check out these destinations in Leeds, Newcastle and Manchester.

Leeds

North Bar

Describing itself as one of the original pioneers of the city’s bar boom, North Bar can be found in the hugely popular Northern Quarter of Leeds, which has seen a rapid rise to popularity of late. With around 130 different beers on offer, patrons of the bar won’t be short on choice, and you’ll have plenty of scope to vary and broaden your drinking horizons. The draughts on offer at the bar tend to vary seasonally and the drink rotation that North Bar offers means that regular visitors will be provided as much choice as possible.  In recent years, draught beers from specialist craft brewers have become increasingly popular, and with beers from America, Europe and the UK all featuring predominantly on the drinks menu, you won’t be short on options when kicking off your night out with a beer.

Newcastle

BrewDog

Located in the popular nightlife area that is Dean Street, the destination is located perfectly between the historic Grainger Town and the picturesque Quayside of Newcastle and Gateshead. In a city more accustomed to cocktails and champagnes, BrewDog states that this particular bar ‘injects a much needed dose of hardcore craft beer into an area rising from the ashes of a previously Smirnoff-soaked landscape.’ With its impressive glass front that immediately catches the eye on passing, head into the venue and you’ll immediately notice the dual level setup. Popular and busy on most weekends, the venue is a true lover of British punk music and you’ll be greeted by the likes of the Sex Pistols and the Clash upon arrival; however if you head in at a less peak time when the buzz of activity isn’t at its peak, you can relax, hang out, play board games and even rock the vintage pin ball machine. Brewdog’s success since starting up in its original Aberdeen location has now lead to there being 13 locations of the bar throughout the UK.

Manchester

Port Street Beer House

If you’re searching for craft beer in Manchester, then Port Street is the obvious choice, as its vast selection and great critical acclaim puts all competitors to shame. Described by  The Guardian as being in the “top 10 bars and pubs for craft beer”, Port Street gets it right by offering favourites from up and down the UK, along with offerings from over the Atlantic, and many European favourites. Their full and impressive drinks list can be found online, and the bar is located on Port Street, just a short walk from the Piccadilly area of the city

If you’re looking to enjoy an evening of entertainment this month, make sure you book in at Roomzzz, to enjoy a full weekend of comfort.

Things to do this weekend…

If you are wondering what to do this weekend why not visit Yorkshire? You could check into our city centre accommodation in Leeds and take a look around…
Not far away is the city of Bradford and this weekend sees the celebrations opening City Park a six-acre public space in the heart of the city which contains the largest man-made water feature in any UK city. 
City Park’s 4,000sq m mirror pool features more than 100 fountains, including the tallest in any UK city at 30m (100ft), laser light projectors and mist effects. It promises to be an action-packed day which showcases the park and encompasses different parts of the six-acre site, including the mirror pool, Centenary Square, the grass-topped Pavilion building, City Hall and the BBC Big Screen. 
I think that’s where I’ll be headed this Saturday! And then kicking back in Roomzzz before heading into Leeds for dinner and a dancing…. perfect…

Leeds City on Trip Advisor!

Skarch from Bangalor stayed with us at Leeds City...

5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 November 2011

My wife and I stayed here for 10 days in October 2011. The location, the room (smart studio) and the staff are all excellent.

One could not ask for a better location in Leeds city centre. It is close to the train station, bus stops, the best shopping and top rated restaurants and pubs.

The smart studio has a king size bed, excellent bathroom, a small sitting area with a view of the city, a very well equipped kitchenette, washing machine & dryer and a Mac Mini which doubles as a TV. The TV swivels 180 degrees to face the bed or the sitting area.

The staff are very friendly and helpful without exception. The housekeeping crew made up our room, bath and kitchenette spic and span everyday!

The property is built on a small lot and therefore the corridors are narrow for large luggage. The fire doors make your task of moving in and out a bit difficult along the narrow halls. The room doors close with a rather loud bang: so a neighbour returning late can wake you up. The wood flooring in our room (301) creaked a lot, probably due to faulty laying. These were minor irritations in an otherwise perfect stay.

Overall, we had an excellent stay and would not hesitate to go back next time.

Remember remember the 5th November!

As  regular readers will know… we like to start the week with a look at what our lovely guests have been saying about us!
This week we’ve had some fab feedback on Roomzzz in Leeds… check it out…

5 of 5 starsReviewed 17 October 2011

This is the second time we have stayed at Roomzzz Leeds city and both times have been perfect. The first time we chose to stay in a Grande studio which was excellent, very spacious room with everything and more that you need for a comfortable stay. The under floor heating was excellent as was the modern feel to the room. The only complaint was that the Grande studios are situated to the rear of the building and have poor views. In comparison the second time we stayed in a Smart studio and even though it was a little smaller than the Grande you still get the same comforts as the Grande studio and you also get a great view too as most of these rooms are situated towards the front street. If I was to advise anyone on which room to stay in I would have to say the Smart studio, as it is still a large room with better views and the cost of the room is cheaper. The aparthotel is in a perfect position just far enough from the nightlife to be quiet and yet walking distance from call street with loads of busy bars and restaurants. There is car parking near which is cheap at the ncp you get a discount card from reception so it costs you £6 overnight. Both of our stays were excellent with the staff on reception being very helpful. Overall if you want a Luxurious stay in the centre of leeds Roomzzz is perfect.

4 of 5 starsReviewed 1 October 2011

Just under £60 for what looked (on the website anyway) like a great little apartment? Could that be right? YES! And actually, it was better than it looked. Very well equipped, clean, modern, spacious, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Exactly what we needed after an exhausting day. Room to spread out and chill with a takeaway we got delivered and wine from the off license two minutes walk away. OK, so this location is a bit noisy but I’d definitely stay again.

October in Yorkshire!

Posted on: No Comments

Oooo think October might be almost my favourite month of the year… what do you think? Leaves on the ground – jumpers out again, nice snuggly boots? What’s not to love…? OK so it gets dark earlier but only for six months!

We thought we’d take a look at what’s happening around Yorkshire in the hope that we can tempt you into one of our fabulous Leeds establishments…

1st – 2nd October – UK Pro Surf Event in Scarborough – Amazing surfing plus skateboarding, BMX & extreme sports. Also enjoy live music, DJ’s, performances, drive-in movies and more. This is an Xtreme sports extravaganza not to be missed.

Steam Gala on the Worth Valley Railway – made famous by the film the Railway Children – in Howarth – and let’s not forget the Bronte connection!

The Great Yorkshire Run takes place in Sheffield on the 9th October.

Illuminating York Festival from 26th – 29th October sees the annual digital arts and lighting festival which invites visitors and residents alike to rediscover York in a new light!

And then we have a journey to the dark side for a terrifyingly entertaining night to remember. For Five Nights only York Maze becomes your worst nightmare. Hallowscream, is an advance ticket only night time event for teenagers and adults who should know better – from the 26th – 30th October.

Whatever you decide to do – why not book into Roomzzz? You can bring the family and have a real home from home… wherever you travel to during the day you’ll look forward to coming back to Roomzzz!
