New Briggate

New Briggate

New Briggate pulls away from the pedestrianised hub of Briggate itself with nightlife, entertainment, retail and food on offer running the length of this road. It’s a cultural hub for Leeds, and has been called the West End of West Yorkshire!

Leeds Grand Theatre & Opera House

Leeds Grand offers up beautiful Victorian proscenium arch interiors - but the theatre they put on covers the whole range, from those traditional classics to the most modern, contemporary and cutting-edge performances. Leeds Grand is also home to the stellar Northern organisations Northern Ballet and Opera North.

Address:46 New Briggate, Leeds LS1 6NU
Our Handmade Collective

Housed in the beautiful and historic Grand Arcade, this cute independent gift shop is a great spot to while away an hour in search of wonderful gifts for friends and family (whilst taking in the spectacular surroundings of this ancient arcade, and eyeing up some lunch possibilities in the neighbouring arcade units, too).

North Bar

Set up in 1997 as arguably the UK’s first craft beer bar, North Bar prizes itself on serving up the best rare and specialist beers. Whether you head there mid-afternoon to try a special brew and nibble or you arrive later on in the evening when the popular spot gets overrun with happy beer fans, North Bar is a popular Leeds haunt which has spawned many sibling bars - including Further North, Alfred, Preston, North Bar Social, Harrogate and North Brewing Co. So never fear, you can enjoy North Bar’s amazing beer in many of Leeds’ suburbs and beyond, as well as enjoying the Upper Briggate scene!
