Everything’s being kept secret, from the venue to the line-up.

To find out, ravers will have to take to Twitter on the day, using the hashtag #0800R1NG2RAV3.

City Buzz got to sample the new festive menu at this Leeds eatery and can reveal they’ve created their own winter gin this year, with a blend of spices and orange.

It’s available from November 27 along with other winter drinks such as eggnog and mulled wine.

They go perfectly with the new festive food menu, and the parsnip croquettes are definitely worth a try!


A huge refurbishment has been carried out at this city centre hotel, which now boasts a renovated bar, brasserie and reception area.

There’s a new selection of cocktails, a revamped food menu and two private dining areas.

Paul Roberts, chief executive, said: “We are hugely proud of what we have to offer.”
