Danny Long ‏@DBauer191. @AndyHutchYPN @LeedsNews Harvey Nicks fourth floor. 
Why? because the ingredients are right and they know how to mix them. Finally, atmosphere.

Maria Berz ‏@mariaberz. @AndyHutchYPN @LeedsNews Rolands on Call Lane.
Because they do amazing cocktails. 
And they’re not the obvious choice!

Sarah S. ‏@smishpixie. @AndyHutchYPN @LeedsNews Alcheimst for something different (with a smokey or colour changing twist).
Or The Maven for a secret speakeasy vibe.

Rosie ‏@pigeonfalling. @AndyHutchYPN @LeedsNews Definitely @BlindTygerLeeds.
Best cocktails, service and atmosphere.

Gina Francey ‏@GinaFrancey. @AndyHutchYPN @LeedsNews Mook! Lovely cocktails, affordable prices. 
And great atmosphere!!

Two cosmopolitans served in brandy glasses!
