Sandinista is an award winning cocktail bar and tapas restaurant in Leeds.

With live music gigs every Wednesday and Sunday and DJs playing Thursday - Saturday, Sandinista are one of Leeds' foremost late night venues and the only bar in the city open untill 3am, 7 days a week!

Si Ord opened Sandinista! in October 2002, inspired by his love of music, food and drink and Central American Culture. With an endearingly shabby appeal and a loosely Latin American feel, the doors opened with the ethos 'nuestra casa es tu casa' - our home is your home - with the idea to create a bar for 'everyone' in the city's northern quarter.

Almost half of the tapas menu is Gluten-free and there is a good range of vegetarian options.

You will find the perfect accompaniment to whatever takes your fancy from the recently re-vamped wine list. In addition they serve an excellent range of cocktails, an impressive array of rums and other spirits and a fine selection of draught and speciality bottled beers.
