Let loose in The Roost under the glow of the neon sign. It’s been a while since we’ve been able to hit the dancefloor and we feel ready to boogie to some great tunes with great people. Many a time have we sweated and danced our night away to some funk, soul and jazz tunes at Smokestack, Leeds.
The walls of the bar ar adorned with realics of the past wether that be a cool old-fashioned ad or iconcs from the past. You can chill in one of their booths and take in the past whilst enjoying the present moment.
Many of the bar’s drinks play on the speakeasy aesthetic and are served in champagne and martini glasses as well as the classic tumblers for the whiskey numbers.
Our favourite cocktail is a classic Old Fashioned, but you should also try the Caribbean twist on an Old Fashioned, try the Golden Fashioned, made using El Dorado 8yr Rum, Briottett Fig Liqueur, Regan’s Orange Bitters, sugar cane syrup and banana dust. Another favourite is ‘The Opera’, which is a blend of Portobello Road gin, lemon, blueberries & basil.
