THOR’S Tipi Bar Returns to Leeds for City’s Festive Celebrations

8th October 2019

THOR’S tipi bar makes a welcome return to Leeds city centre this November, running from Saturday 16th November right through until 1st January 2020.

Visited by over 50,000 people last year, the ever popular and highly-acclaimed attraction plays on Yorkshire’s Viking heritage and is now a firm fixture of the Christmas offering in the city.

“Mulled wine, log fires, hot cocoa….what’s not to love?” Secret London


From 12:00pm on Saturday 16th November on Victoria Gardens, THOR’S tipi bar will once again open its doors and provide a cosy winter retreat for Christmas shoppers, weary workers, visitors and families alike.
Two linked canvas tipis will form the bar, festooned with lighting and decked out with wooden tables and benches, cosy furs and an open fire pit, around which customers can soak up the Viking hygge. The outdoor area has been given a new look with more seating enabling patrons to soak up the festive atmosphere whilst watching the hustle and bustle around them.

A brand-new drinks menu truly offers something for everyone. Hot and cold cocktails with a Christmas twist, beers from around the world and local ales and stouts are just a few of the new items on the menu. An extensive wine list, soft drinks and a non-alcoholic selection can also be discovered whilst festive favourites such as mulled wine and hot chocolate will ensure there is something to warm everyone’s cockles. Teas and coffees are also available to revive busy shoppers.

Leeds’s favourite street food vendors, The Mussel Pot, will be returning, bringing an exciting new menu to the event including sumptuous treats such as dirty fries, burgers and their famous mussels.

Christmas party bookings will also be making a welcome return to the tipi bar following an overwhelming number of requests. Details of the packages on offer can be found by emailing or calling the booking number.
Amanda Monaghan, Co-Founder of THOR’s, said “Returning to Leeds for the fourth year means a lot to us and so we have worked hard to bring an exciting new menu and to bring back Christmas party bookings to give our customers the best experience. Friends, families and even dogs are welcome under the twinkling canvas. With our new menu, our friendly team and the roaring log fire, we truly are Christmas in a cup!”

Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, said: “For the last three years THOR’S tipi bar has really added to the Christmas buzz in Leeds, giving people a chance to come together to soak up the festive atmosphere, so it’s great to see such a popular event returning to Victoria Gardens this year. As always, we have a vibrant and exciting programme of events and activities over Christmas time and we’re really looking forward to welcoming families and visitors to celebrate with us once again.”

THOR’S tipi bar will be open from 12pm to 10pm daily from 16th November through to 1st January 2020 (closed Christmas Day). For party bookings and  further details email [email protected] or call 01904 373025.
