In pictures: Remember the original Walkabout bar in Leeds?

Have your say

Its the Australian-themed bar that holds memories for thousands of revellers in Leeds.

The original Walkabout was well-known for showing live sports and serving Aussie-themed food and drink on Cookridge Street in the city centre.

That was until it closed in 2013 ending a 14 year history with the city.

The YEP’s resident beer writer Simon Jenkins said of the closure at the time: “On the great sporting occasions, particularly those which involved an Aussie team, this was a great place to come.”

Now the brand is back and open again for business in Leeds - this time based on Woodhouse Lane.
