It’s the weekend! But are you stuck for something to do?

Don’t worry, we’ve got it covered. Here are our top three events in Leeds this week.

Zaap Thai, Grand Arcade

The people behind Sukothai are opening a traditional Thai street food restaurant next week.

Zaap Thai will take over most of the old Handpicked Hall site at the Grand Arcade, just off Merrion Street.

It launches on Monday, May 18 and serves up dim sum, thai salads and chicken satay dishes, to name a few.

Pop in and try it out from 6pm.

The Liquorist, Greek Street

It’s finally over for The Living Room on Greek Street as The Liquorist takes over.

The brand new bar took over the site and gave it a facelift before unveiling it at a VIP party last night.

We was there and although we have a bit of a sore head, we can confirm it’s a very exciting new addition to the street.

Try their classy cocktails and tasty food this weekend.

Al Pacino, Elland Road

Movie megastar Al Pacino is coming to Leeds tomorrow.

If you’re lucky enough to have bagged a ticket (starting at £150 a pop), it’s sure to be THE place to be.

Pacino will talk about his impressive career, including his roles in films like The Godfather and Scarface, at the Centenary Pavilion at Elland Road.
