Leeds city centre has a new addition to its restaurant and bar scene in the form of a giant rooftop terrace bar that is giving us huge summer views. Coffee and plant-based street food venue in the day and bar serving up local brewers such as the massive Leeds craft beer guys Northern Monk in the evening it’s sure to be a hot spot in the city in no time. The Green Room roof terrace in Leeds is our favourite new venue – that’s for sure.
The brainchild of two entrepreneurs, Will Habergham and Kirk Allen, who have spent the past decade working in clubs, events, and music festivals Green Room Leeds’ newest space is offering up something new for the city.
There is something about a rooftop terrace that just gives us a proper summer vibe and t has one hell of a terrace that is given us all kinds of chilled out feels.
Two years in the making it’s located in the historic building next to the newly renovated Majestic Building and the new Channel 4 HQ, Green Room has collaborated with the very best local independent food and drink brands, creating an unrivalled collection of vegan-friendly dishes and drink menus.
In the day get your caffeine fix with North Star Coffee Roaster an ethically sourced coffee bean producer along with award-winning vegan food from Grön, who have made waves across the city with their feel-good plant-based food and Scandi-inspired Roundhay, Harrogate and York venues coming 9th June.
We can already see ourselves on the Green Room roof terrace in Leeds city centre of an afternoon with a flat white tucking into Grön brunch dishes such as the fully loaded Avocado on Toast and Vegan Pancakes with Blueberry Compote, and coconut yoghurt, fresh blueberries, mint, Biscoff crumb and maple syrup.
Heading into the night, Green Room is offering craft beer and ales from local breweries like Northern Monk, Kirkstall Brewery and Magic Rock as well as a selection of cocktails and a spritz menu all perfect drinks to enjoy on his brand new roof terrace bar.
The crown jewel of the venue is undoubtedly the rooftop bar, which will play host to summer BBQs and the best local DJ talent providing your summer soundtrack playing every Thursday to Sunday on the state-of-the-art VOID sound system.
Speaking ahead of the launch, Director Kirk Allen, said:
‘’After a challenging two years spent planning, prepping, and renovating, we’re really excited to be finally open. We believe the people in this city are more than ready to embrace venues that champion a strong focus on sustainability and healthier living, whilst also providing a setting and atmosphere that’s both fresh and unique to the city. We can’t wait to welcome our first guests this weekend.”
Fellow Director, Will Habergham, added:
‘’We’re all really proud of Green Room project and are confident that we have the perfect mix of exceptional plant-based food from Grön, as well as an incredible selection of drinks from the likes of North Star, Kirkstall Brewery and Northern Monk.
