• Slug & Lettuce Tipsy Afternoon Tea

    Tipsy Afternoon Tea at Slug & Lettuce

    With International Tea Day being celebrated this weekend, Slug & Lettuce invited me to try out one of their afternoon tea options. Their new venue in Leeds is definitely worth a visit. They have recently taken over where Yates used to be on Boar Lane and the transformation is incredible. I never set my foot in Yates but I doubt it ever looked as classy, pretty and tasteful as Slug & Lettuce. It’s quite different to their location at Park Row, more hip is the best word to describe it. It’s a vibrant place with lots of fun decor in a monochrome and pinkish colour scheme. Their birdcage booths are adorable,…

    Crazy Golf and Cocktails at Junkyard Golf Club in Leeds

    I love mini golf. I used to play it a lot when I was younger with my parents, with my dad in particular. Every summer we would go now and again to play at various outdoor mini golf courses. Crazy golf on the other hand is a fairly new thing for me but I enjoy that too. I couldn’t wait to check out Leeds’ latest addition – Junkyard Golf Club. Junkyard Golf Club have courses in London, Oxford, Manchester and now also Leeds, since a month or so. You find it in The Light, on the second floor, opposite the escalators that lead up to the cinema. It’s a very…

    Cocktail Tasting and Pizza Making at Cuckoo in Leeds

    Cuckoo in Leeds is probably my new favourite bar. It’s so colourful and 80’s/90’s funky. It was love at first sight! The vibe and interior reminds me a bit of closed down Fab Cafe. A place I loved going to on nights out. Similar to Fab Cafe, Cuckoo has the colourful pastel walls and the amazing playlist. Instead of geeky film props, Cuckoo is full of tropical and animal decorations. What’s not to love? Cuckoo Cocktails All the cocktails here are very easy to drink, some even dangerously so. I started off with a Lychee & Cherry Margarita; Tequila mixed with Lychee Liquor and sweetened with Cherries. It has a…

    Smokin’ Bar & Kitchen in Leeds

    There’s a new restaurant in Leeds, what a big surprise! The keep popping up and I’m trying to keep up visiting them all. Latest for me and only a couple of weeks old – Smokin’ Bar & Kitchen. What you see is what you get, a bar and kitchen serving smoking BBQ food. They’ve opened up in Around The World in 80 Beers old venue, above Bierkeller and under Shooters Sports Bar. It’s about time this venue has a decent restaurant to go to and I’m glad the stairs up to the sports bar has relocated to the entrance so that’s all they share. Smokin’ Bar & Kitchen also has an…

  • Cocos Beach Bar

    Tropical Feels at Cocos Beach Bar

    I’ve never been to Brazil but if it’s anything like Cocos Beach Bar in Cabana I know I’d love it. To be honest, I have a feeling it might be better but creating a tropical water hole like this in Leeds is genius. Who doesn’t want to step into a summery tiki atmosphere, leaving the cold and dark brick city outside? The bar is full of all the beach props you can imagine. Everything from blow fish lamps to a surfboard. The bar side is fully decorated with flipflops in different colours, making a flowery pattern. Don’t be surprised spotting fake parrots and bikinis hanging down from the ceiling. There’s…
