Multistories Leeds: Eight storey-high food, drink and music pop up set to launch in Merrion Centre car park this summer
A food, drink and music pop up is coming to Leeds this summer - and it involves socialising in a car park eight storeys off the ground.
The Multistories summer pop up will be at Level 8 CitiPark in the Merrion Centre from Friday, June 25.
With a capacity for 350 guests to socialise in the car park at one time, it hopes to brighten up Leeds weekend social scene according to organisers.
Music will be provided by some local DJ talent, and food vendors include Master Chef's Matt Healy and The Savvy Baker.
There will also be performing acts and a big screen to watch the Euros on.
Multistories, brought by Xperience Partners, aims to maximise unused space in Leeds city centre for hospitality.
Co-founder Arron Fishwick said: ''Hospitality has taken some blows over the past 12 months, to say the least, and so Multistories was born to kickstart the industry in Leeds, encourage greener social space and celebrate some of the amazingly talented independents in the city.
‘’Socialising in a car park may raise the odd eyebrow up north, but it’s a tried and tested concept in London that’s been growing exponentially for the best part of a decade.
"Level 8 will not only allow for some unrivalled views of the city, but some of the absolute best food and drink you’ll find in the UK.
‘’We’re honoured to be working with the likes of Matt Healy, the Savvy Baker, and can't wait to reveal more big names as they are confirmed.
"With everyone fed up with lockdown, we're hoping 2021 is going to be the much-needed summer of love we've all been craving.
"We can't wait to see the people of Leeds join us to make some lifelong memories.''
Multistories will operate from 4pm to 10pm on Fridays, and between 12pm and 10pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday, June 11.
