Food and Drink Al Fresco

One of our favourite things to do in the summer is have a tasty meal or refreshing drink whilst soaking up the sun. Here are some hot spots where you can do just that.
Aire Bar View - CA


For fine dining while the sun’s shining try Banyan and The Restaurant Bar & Grill located in City Square, or The Botanist just down the road tucked away on Boar Lane.


The Leeds’ waterfront is always a popular place and you’ll find a great choice of bars and restaurants there to watch the world go by.

Granary Wharf boasts LIVIN'Italy, The Hop, Water Lane Boathouse and The Lock to name a few with Brasserie Blanc just over the road.

Or wander down to Brewery Wharf where you’ll find Oracle, Ciao Bella and Azucar. For great views of the River Aire try Aire Bar or Stew & Oyster at Calls Landing.


Take in the stunning views from one of our many roof top terraces. Both Belgrave Music Hall and Headrow House boast fabulous views and great music. Or relax in style on the terraces of Issho and East 59th at the top of Victoria Gate. 

Trinity Leeds is not just one of the UK’s best shopping centres; Angelica, Cielo Blanco, Everyman and the Alchemist can offer top quality from the top floor.

As does the highest of our roof terraces, the Sky Lounge at the Hilton Doubletree.


If keeping your feet firmly on the ground is more your thing, why not spend a relaxed evening in a beer garden?

Shears Yard offer tasty food and cocktails in the sunshine, explore the exhibitions at The Tetley or visit The Midnight Bell; Leeds Brewery’s flagship pub.

For a night out Call Lane always get a mention. Rolands Bar, Revolution and Brooklyn Bar have gardens where you can cool down. As do the Parkside Tavern, Nation of Shopkeepers and The Social.


Greek Street is Leeds’ newest and largest outdoor drinking and dining area. The street becomes pedestrianised every day in Summer, with venues such as Alchemist, Gusto and The Liquorist taking part.


And that’s not even all of them! Explore all the Leeds bars and restaurants HERE.
