A look at Leeds by night
Leeds is dripping with coolness right now.
The city is absolutely buzzing, a hotbed of music, fashion and revelry, and it’s the last of these we’ve been particularly impressed with recently. The physical nature of Leeds means that restaurants, exhibitions, shopping centres, strip clubs and pubs can generally be reached on foot during your stag weekend in Leeds, and, thanks to straightforward A1/M1 & airport connections, everyone knows how to get there.
The mix of locals, students and weekenders make for a broad spectrum of demographics, yet the half a million souls who live here can feel justifiably proud that the reputation of their city is unique – a wicked mix of innovative modernity and deep-rooted tradition. The city’s solidly-cultivated Club & DJ reputation has helped dampen the despair felt by many who follow its proud-but-wounded football club, whilst the number of plush late-night bars is reward for its people’s good taste and refusal to accept second best. A busy, confident place with good-humoured people and class in abundance, Yorkshire’s rose has never smelled so good.
Leeds takes its punters’ entertainment needs very seriously, providing a pedestrianised centre with a multitude of choice in shopping, eating and drinking. Areas like Call Lane, Headingley or the famous Corn Exchange, possess a plethora of swanky and minimalistic nightspots to cater for even the most difficult-to-please of stag weekend groups. You can easily incorporate a few drinks in each quarter of the city during a big session, thereby improving your geographical knowledge of Leeds whilst getting smashed at the same time.
There’s a smart-but-casual dress policy as a rule, so don’t you be getting turned away as your fellow guests walk straight in to start proceedings without you, and there are stacks of activities to pick from on your Leeds stag weekend too, depending on how lazy or competitive the group vibe is. For those of you who like your stag venue with serious style and affordable panache, why not come t’ Leeds?
