The worldwide celebration of scrumptious alcoholic mixes is on May 13 and luckily, there’s no shortage of cool cocktail bars in Leeds. Menus full of fruity infusions and creative, smoky spirits with all the classics on offer as well.
Here are 10 of the best places for cocktails across the city for you to choose from. Which concoction will you order first?
1. The Alchemist
Leeds is lucky enough to be home to two Alchemists in its city centre - one resides at the top of the Trinity shopping centre and the other on Greek Street. The cocktails at The Alchemist will smoke, fizz and bubble their way to your table and some even change colour. Famously served in science lab beakers and flasks, your Alchemist cocktail is sure never to disappoint.
2. Be At One
The sheer size of the cocktail menu at Be At One ensures there will be a drink to satisfy any whim, with a variety of sweet, spicy and sour infusions all on offer, giving you a chance to be adventurous and bold in your choices.
3. Headrow House
Headrow House is a vibrant food and drink destination with three floors and two impressive rooftop terraces to indulge in an array of boozy concoctions. From pink gin mixes to an Aperol spritz, there's something for us all.
4. The Botanist
With a striking ‘outdoors indoors’ themed interior, this laidback, rustic bar is one of the city’s busiest and is widely known for its botanically infused cocktails, which are served in plant pot beakers and fancy glasses.
