TOP bartenders from Leeds are mixing up their venue on Lower Briggate by transforming it into a new gin bar.

The Hedonist Project, made up of three bartenders, is waving goodbye to their former whiskey parlour and transforming it into a new venue.

Old Tom’s Gin Kitchen is moving in, with the previous Scottish decor being replaced with a lighter, fresher decor and menu to match. A range of unusual gins will be on offer as well as gin-based cocktails and quirky takes on the traditional gin and tonic.

The food menu includes fresh seafood, salads and sandwiches, with dishes such as juniper-cured salmon and lamb cutlets with sautéed greens.

Tom Finnon, drinks director, said: “We’ve learnt a lot in the past 12 months.

“By having our own site now and with a year under our belts we’ve got that extra bit of stability to really push the boundaries on food and drinks – and we’re really excited about the possibilities the versatility of gin opens up.”

He added: “This is a different beast all together.”
