Have your say

The office Christmas party has been upgraded this year.

Warm fizz in paper cups and soggy vol u vents by the photocopier need be no more.

For the businesses and independents using the co-working space and permanent offices at the city’s most recent development of office space, the festive spirit is literally flowing.

Avenue HQ on East Parade in Leeds city centre opened in September this year and is preparing for its first Christmas at the in-house cafe, bar and restaurant

East Parade Social has come up with a range of festive drinks to celebrate the end of the working day, as well as Christmas, in style.

Weekday ‘Happy Hour’ does mulled wine and mulled cider at two for £8, as well as hot toddies.

The seasonal celebrations don’t have to be indoors either as despite the dark, cold nights as Avenue HQ has transformed the roof top terrace.

As well as some of the best views of the city, it has been decked out with heaters, fluffy blankets, twinkling lights and Christmas decorations.

Leah Dottie, head of hospitality said: “Christmas is a time to get together with friends and family and East Parade Social is the perfect place to catch-up.

“Our rooftop bar provides stunning views of Leeds, and as we’re just a short stop away from the Christmas markets, we hope to see lots of people getting festive and joining us in the celebrations.”

East Parade Social is open to the public as well as the workers based there and the rooftop bar will be open throughout December Thursday to Saturday.
