A summer evening in Leeds

Posted on:

City breaks in the summer mean you can truly gain a feel for the culture of a city, take in some food and drink whilst still enjoying the warm weather and sample everything that the area has to offer without restriction. If you plan to take a weekend break in Leeds over the summer, here are our top picks.



Restaurant Bar and Grill

If you’re looking to enjoy the late evening warmth whilst tucking in at one of Leeds’ finest restaurants, Restaurant Bar and Grill in City Square provides ample outside seating spaces. With a classic traditional grill menu, there’s something for every taste, and with a great ambiance and bar, this is one of the premier food destinations for eating in Leeds in the summer.




One of the high-end ‘penthouse’ offerings at Trinity Leeds, Angelica gives you a dining experience at the very pinnacle of the shopping centre, quite literally. Located on the highest floor, enjoy panoramic views of Leeds city centre whilst enjoying some of Leeds’ finest food and drinks. With an open balcony, you can even catch those last rays of sunshine and enjoy a drink as the sun goes down over the city.


Belgrave Music Hall

One of the newer offerings to arrive in Leeds, Belgrave Music Hall is perfect for those lazy summer evenings with a partner or friends. With a full roof terrace, there is plenty of room to enjoy the sun, and once the sun goes down and the temperature drops, heated sections are perfect for getting cosy and keeping warm. With food on offer on the lower floor, Belgrave Music Hall is a one stop shop for everything you could need for a relaxing night out.


One Night in Leeds

Blackhouse Bar and Grill

Blackhouse truly is one of Leeds’ best restaurants. Located in the city centre, Blackhouse’s Grill on the Square offers both heated outdoor and spacious indoor seating, allowing you to enjoy a meal and drinks in a relaxing environment with a great ambiance.  With a vast range of wines to accompany your meal, even the connoisseurs amongst us will be spoilt for choice. Food choices range from traditionally cooked steaks to fajitas and moules frites. To kick off your meal, why not opt for either calamari or Thai fishcakes as a starter, they come highly recommended.

Fazenda Brazilian steakhouse has fast become one of Leeds’ most talked about restaurants. Offering an ‘all you can eat meat’ experience, diners are treated to vast selections of cuts and sides for a set price. It might not be cheap, with the cost coming in at £25.95 per person through the week, and rising to £27.90 on weekends, but with surroundings far classier than your standard buffet, and a great location in Granary Wharf, the restaurant is fast becoming a favourite for the residents of Leeds. Grab as much steak as you want, whilst not even having to leave your seat, as Fazenda’s waiters tend to your every need.


Sitting on the top floor of Hilton’s Double Tree Hotel in Granary Wharf, Skylounge provides arguably the best view of the city. With unbelievable views over the Leeds night sky, enjoy your sociable drink whilst taking in the sights of the city. If the weather is kind enough, you can even take a seat in the balcony seating area, and absorb some of the night-time sounds of Leeds.

A trendy wine bar targeting a higher end clientele, Curvee offers a selection of premium wines. Specialising in red, there is plenty of choice for the wine lover, with a tipple to suit any palette. Whether a pre-meal beverage, or winding down after eating, head to Curvee on Granary Wharf for a classy drinking experience.


The Wardrobe

Built in a semi-derelict building used for storing the West Yorkshire Playhouse’s props and costume department – hence the name, The Wardrobe is a club that offers a music scene to rival any in the country, priding itself on being an intimate club for musicians to perform at. With a style showcasing everything from folk, to funk and soul, reggae, hip hop and everything in between, The Wardrobe has played host to some amazing and historic shows. With a resume to contend with the best of Leeds night venues, past gigs have included the likes of Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey-Rae and Beverley Knight. There’s nowhere in Leeds like it.

With an emphasis on quality music, The HiFi is a nightclub well worth visiting when in Leeds. Having won awards for being a music venue, the bar and club provides an enjoyable location for your post-dinner entertainment.  Not the typical rowdy club that makes socialising impossible, HiFi is the kind of place that allows you to grab a few mates together with a genuine appreciation of good music and dance the night away.

If you’re preparing for an evening of food and entertainment in Leeds, make sure you check out Roomzzz Aparthotel for a luxurious end to your evening.

My wife and I stayed for one night on a city weekend break while dropping our daughter at University. We loved the city centre (very upmarket shopping and nicely priced restaurants) and this aparthotel blew us away. A large modern room with excellent facilities inc fridge, wasing machine and dishwasher. As it happens, we didnt need them but the room was very clean with modern furnishings. There is no breakfast but good coffee, pastries and fruit juice are available in the lobby. We would definitely stay again.

This is our 3rd stay in a year and it was great to be welcomed by Keith again who has always made our stay special. My 13 year old daughter and I stayed on Friday 9 September for a birthday treat to go to The Royal Exchange. She loved everything about the Liberty Suite which had a fantastic bank of large windows around the corner of the building. The view was brilliant and they were all shuttered with black out blinds and sound proofing. There was no noise from the street below. Nearby are loads of mini supermarkets so we made use of the kitchen facilities and it was a bit of a call whether to go to the theatre we were enjoying the room so much. Then of course the hot chocolate machine in the lobby was truly a 13year old’s dream.

On returning we watched a film and there was no noise from other rooms so I wonder about the reviews mentioning noise as the hotel was very busy. Thank you to Keith who made us feel again like valued regular customers. We will be ringing this Friday hoping for a cancellation on Saturday 17th. Fingers crossed.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous but if your want views of the city ask for a room on the 2nd 3rd or 4th floors. The fifth floor rooms are still great and have loads of velux windows.

PS Don’t forget our Royalty Club… you can sign up for free and get a minimum 10% discount off each stay!

The Northern Championships: Manchester v Leeds III

Posted on: No Comments

No longer Europe’s embarrassing, malnourished sibling, dining in Britain has come a long way in the last 20 years. From business trips to citybreaks, whether in Leeds or Manchester, you’ll have the chance to experience some of the finest restaurants in the country. To help you navigate the gastronomic delights of each tasty town we’ve put them head to head in a cuisine contest…

Round 3 – Restaurants


Corner Cafe, 104 Burley Road LS3 1JP

Located near Roomzzz Leeds City West, this understated Indian restaurant offers personal service and bespoke dishes, and a pint from the pub next door.

Mumtaz, Clarence Dock, LS10 1PJ

The original restaurant behind the world’s most famous curry brand is in nearby Bradford, but Leeds’ well situated addition to the chain is well worth a visit too.

Anthony’s Restaurant, 19 Boar Lane, LS1 6EA

Family owned, family run and critically acclaimed. Since opening in 2004 Anthony’s has developed a reputation for the most stylish fine dining in town.

Jamie’s Italian, 35 Park Row, LS1 5JL

Little introduction is necessary, but when the latest of Jamie Oliver’s restaurants landed in this old bank, Leeds’ culinary culture was forever changed.

Salvo’s, 109-115 Otley Road, LS6 3PX

Winning ‘Best Neighbourhood Italian Restaurant’ on Gordon Ramsey’s F Word and serving more than two million customers, over three decades, speaks for itself.


The Cedar Tree, 69 Thomas Street, M4 1LQ

A rather bizarre interior marries office-ceiling chic with fake foliage in this backstreet secret famed for its mouthwatering Lebanese menu.

New Samsi, 36-38 Whitworth Street, M1 3NR

Manchester takes oriental food seriously. Options are plentiful, but if you ask locals where to find the best samurai steak or Bento box, it’s invariably New Samsi.

Mr Thomas’ Chop House, 52 Cross Street, M2 7AR

Enjoy al fresco dining in the summer overlooking St Anne’s historic churchyard, or move in from the cold for fine English food in this Victorian tiled pub.

The Lime Tree, Lapwing Lane, M20 2WS

If West Didsbury is Manchester’s culinary capital then this classy modern British establishment is top of the pile, making the trip south of the city well worth it.

Grado, New York Street, M1 4BD

Heathcotes’ reputation for quality, fresh ingredients is legendary, and the Spanish and Tapas menus at Grado are no exception. Nor is the extensive wine list.

The final whistle blows after a close fought battle. We’ve enjoyed drinks in the best bars, nights in the best clubs and, finally, food in the finest restaurants Leeds and Manchester have to offer. Now all that’s left to say is enjoy your stay, and if you find anywhere we’ve missed, feel free to let us know.
