A pretty cool place to be honest. The nicest thing about it was that it was out of the main town strip. Went for a drink to say goodbye to an old colleague, and we impressed by her choice.
The atmosphere was good, not too loud, and generally a good place for a drink, or a place to start for the night.
Looking forward to going again.
An out of town venue but a place to can stay all night! Amazing food menu, great cocktails and on weekends they have axcellent funk/soul bands. The entry usptairs is free and when the club is open downstairs it’s paid in but the prices vary depending on who’s playing. The Veune as a whole is amazing and deffinatly the dest live music venue in West Yorkshire, and possible the north!
We came here for a friend’s birthday last night and although I knew where it was, I’d never been before. It reminds me a bit of Bradford’s Love Apple in its set-up, in that it’s a bar, restaurant, music venue and club all rolled into one.
Our table was set up in a bit of an awkward place, along the side of the bar, beside the small booths, which meant that initially we got a great view of the stage (and the music provided by the Jen Low Band - very Dave Matthews they were), but from about 9pm people kept eyeing us up because clearly we were in their way, and so they simply stood in front of us, banged into our seats to get to the bar, and generally made us feel a bit like we were imposing.
Hot Steve and I had already had a massive lunch so we passed on the starters, but did have a small bowl of olives for £2. For my main I had courgettes stuffed with ratatouille and Ribblesdale cheese for £10, and Steve had the sea bream with fries (£13.50). A bit pricier than I’d usually pay, particularly given the conservative portions, but then it did mean that we had room for puddings… Mine was the prettiest pudding I’ve ever eaten (pistachio meringue with chantilly cream and strawberries - £4), and Steve’s rubarb crumble and custard was very tasty too - also £4. So without drinks it was just over £30, and we got to listen to live music.
We headed downstairs for the free Chichino gig (I had never heard of them, as I am not down with the kids, but it was a lady in leopard print leggings and a sweatband playing the funk out of a keyboard with a backing band - 'live house’ apparently), but only stayed for one drink as it was a bit busy and we were full of food and also it was all a bit too surreal for almost-sober people like us.
I’d like to come back - it’s a nice place for a relaxed, long evening over a tasty meal and a bottle of wine, and less so much for a big party of people I think.
This is one of my favourite spots in Leeds, and with good reason. Just opposite the BBC building, it boasts a dark, modern interior, great selection of draught beers, and some excellent dining options.
Try the pre-theatre menu (£14 for two courses) and get stuck into some delicious lamb chops followed by ribeye steak béarnaise. Proper food, properly cooked. They often have gigs in the evenings (small-scale) and there’s always a good atmosphere. When they finish building above it and the scaff comes down, it will be better still.
The Wardrobe’s one of the few places I could happily spend all day in. Just round the corner from the bus station in Leeds centre, it’s close enough to town to be easily accessible yet well hidden enough to be almost invisible to casual passers-by. Which is fine by me, because it means this great bar maintains the perfect level of business – plenty of atmosphere and friendly folks while rarely being too busy. They serve food, which is lovely (especially the steak) and have a good bar… but the real draw is the music. Nights on Friday and Saturday are especially good, playing as much funk and soul as you can dance to, and they usually throw in a live band or two as well - keep an eye out for some regulars there, the ever-danceable Chunky Butt Funky!
I love the Wardrobe, its a great place to go for drinks with friends and with the added bonus of live music. Its a big place with a great atmosphere and I always enjoy myself when I go here. Its on the outskirts of Leeds so a bit out of the way if you’re wanting to visit a few places but is a good place to end up or just stay all night. In fact I’m going to make a point of going here more often!
What first appears to be an elegant, energetic jazz bar on the outskirts of town lets you down to a subterranean, cavernous basement club where progressive jazz acts, hip hop stars and blues musicians congregate to jam. Achingly cool, with prices to match, The Wardrobe has to have one of the best experiences in Leeds. There are more expensive ones, sure. Yet the unique effect created by the flattering lighting, sunken dancefloor and the sheer calibre of stylish, extrovert people make this THE place to be every weekend, especially when there’s a famous face on the turntables: Norman Jay, MBE, Jazzie B, The Pharcyde have all come and loved the unpretentious cool of the cave.
This place is a really good place to go for a drink down by the bust station. So relaxed and chilled with live music with a great atmosphere. Can enjoy a great sunday lunch while listening to a jazz band, I really recommend to head down as the food is nice
Out of town but close to theatre and highly recommended for drink if round the area. Massive selection of spirits. Downstairs they have live music. Went to see Jose Gonzalas there when he first came out, sat round table, drinking wine in relaxed atmosphere. Lovely venue
