El Gato Negro
Our Leeds home is a stunning Yorkshire stone-clad former bank on the corner of Park Row and Bond Street. The elegant premises house both restaurant and bar, offering a range of award-winning tapas dining and drinking options across two floors of this historic building.
Chef patron Simon Shaw and the team are renowned for creating simple, bold and confident tapas dishes. Informed by what’s fresh and in season, they takes the best of modern and traditional Spanish flavours and techniques, while drawing on inspiration and ingredients from closer to home. The result – whether you’re eating casually at the bar with a drink, or enjoying a more extensive dining experience in our restaurant – is brilliant, balanced and exciting food which evokes the magic of Barcelona, Madrid and San Sebastián.
We’ve always had a passion for the superb wines of modern Spain and are keen to bring them to a wider audience. Since opening we’ve worked with Master of Wine Miles Corish to source a unique selection from independent producers, and we’ve curated a range of newer and more established wines and sherries alike to partner with our dishes.
Our experienced bar staff use a range of the best local and artisanal craft spirits for our house cocktails, mocktails and tonics, created with flair and panache. There’s a perfectly-curated selection of beers, ciders, spirits and sodas as well.
