Leeds businesses: 27 exciting new restaurants, bars, pubs, shops and gyms opened this summer

It’s a challenging climate to open a business in, but that hasn’t got in the way of some exciting new arrivals to Leeds.

From a new cafe and bar in Chapel Allerton launched by a 22-year-old entrepreneur, to a glamorous city centre restaurant merging five south Indian cuisines, a number of new food and drink businesses have made Leeds their home this summer.

We’ve had new shops, luxury salons and independent gyms, too – and even a Greggs cafe in Primark. And there’s more new openings on the way as the summer comes to a close, including a brunch spot that’s already popular in Harrogate.

Here are 27 exciting new businesses that have opened in Leeds this summer, or are opening very soon.
