Rooftop Retreats

Relax at one of Leeds' rooftop bars and restaurants for great food and drinks with stunning views.

Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen

Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen is an independent venue with music, art, film and food spread across three floors, including one of Leeds’ most spectacular roof terraces.

Plus, they’ve got a packed calendar of events with everything from live music to foodie feasts and retro games nights!


With a wrap around terrace and panoramic city views, Angelica is a real show-stopper. Relax in a luxurious setting with a cocktail prepared by one of their skilled mixologists. What better way to spend a summer’s day?

Sky Lounge

Experience the heady heights of the Sky Lounge, perched atop the DoubleTree Hotel, this stylish cocktail bar offers breath-taking views whatever the weather.

Treat yourself to afternoon tea while you look out over the city. During the weekend, the space at Sky Lounge transforms — with superb DJ’s playing the latest tracks — taking you into a whole new party place.

Headrow House

Headrow House is a destination in itself! Boasting the high quality restaurant the Ox Club, a beer hall with brews from around the globe and a live music venue. That’s all before you make your way up to Redondo Beach & Roof Terrace; their very own very own cocktail bar that leads out onto the roof terrace complete with kitchen, outdoor bar and sheltered areas with plenty of seating.


With sparkling, frothing and bubbling cocktails that wouldn’t look out of place in a lab, a visit to the Alchemist is a real experience.

The heated wrap-around terrace and stunning views over the spires and towers of Leeds city centre will warm even the coldest of hearts.


Issho’s name is taken from the Japanese word for ‘together’. Dishes are designed for sharing, or to be enjoyed at one of the open kitchen counters, specialising in either robata or sushi.

Take it outside to the oasis of plush sofas & lush greenery, overlooking Leeds city centre; the terrace is the ideal place for cocktails with friends or an al fresco lunch.

East 59th

East 59th is the latest addition to Victoria Gate’s rooftop. This Manhattan-style rooftop bar and grill takes inspiration from New York’s vibrant nightlife and hosts regular DJ events so you can dance the night away accompanied by stunning views over Leeds.
