Great place, me and my disabled boyfriend rushed in to ask about their disabled toilets access and were met with apologies for their toilet being upstairs, but also directions to a nearby place with t...oilets without stairs. We came back for a few drinks out of gratitude and found a super cool laid back place with great music. Would recommend heartily. See More

Used to come in for parts years ago and was intrigued at the added cafe bar. Totally works! Popped in on Friday for a couple of beers, the atmosphere was great, the beer was good, it was chilled out a...nd you could actually have a conversation without screaming your head off. That is rare in bars nowadays (maybe I'm getting old?). Beer garden was also cracking. Love the place. See More

I attended a gig here a few weeks ago, at first I was a bit put out by how small it was, however this has become my favourite thing about it. The little bar had a great selection of beers and the venu...e was up close and personal, which was absolutely fantastic. Would I go again? I'd love to. See More

Nice little cafe bar. Passed loads of times on bus and always got someone in. Good service bit pricey but welcoming. Plays some good music and also does live music pretty regularly. Will go back again. X

I must disclose an interest but I did play there last night however I would strongly recommend this bar to anyone who enjoys good music and good beer and relaxed atmosphere. My only suggestion for imp...rovement? How about a roof over the beer garden. This is Yorkshire after all! See More

Great little bar. We found this place by accident whilst on a trip to Leeds. Planned on only stopping for one but the beer was so good, stayed longer! We sat out back in the sun. Lovely chilled The bar person was chatty and friendly. The Kirkstall's Brewery Three Swords ale is to die for. We'll be back! See More

Fantastic place! Walked in to the sounds of Chris Cornell doing his thing - which was reason #1 for staying for the first drink. Couldn't not stay after that - great service, friendly staff and a bril...liant live act. Comfortable but fun atmosphere. And table service you can't say no to :-) See More

IC Iceberg-ularz & O.G.K Atlas

I.C. and O.G.K Atlas are a pair of collaborating artists from the U.K, based in Leeds. The classic rapper and producer collaboration sparked in 2017 when the two met whilst working on smaller and respective solo projects. The chemistry that ensued between the two led to the makings of an EP, releasing of a single and a racket in the leeds music scene. The pair are able...
to produce sounds ranging from hardcore percussions to soulful melodies; tethered with complex rhyming schemes and narratives. Since september 2017, I.C. and Atlas have built a reputation and pulled interest in leeds with riveting live performances and the release of "The Tanned Terror" single in febuary 2018.

The two are currently promoting their debut single, aswell as playing many shows in Leeds, York, Hull and Manchester. With two more singles and an EP right around the corner in the spring months of 2018; and some solo projects from either entity, it's safe to say the I.C. & O.G.K Atlas are making a presence on the live scene and quite the disrupt in the
airwaves of music.

With the release of their LP "What Time Do You Call This?", two self-released EPs "The Next Projected Sound Of..." and "Experiments in Pop", Leeds based The Lost 45s established themselves as premier exponents of 60s influenced R'n'B/Blue-Eyed Soul/Beat and Pop. After a lengthy hiatus pursuing other musical projects (The Heavens, The New Unsociables and The Ace!) the band is back doing their live thing again with a new single planned for release late 2018

Tim Holehouse has spent the last 10 years on the road touring his ass off to play his music to the people of the world, playing his brand of mutant delta blues (delta blues played by a guy who was raised on a musical diet of being in Hardcore bands like Minor Threat, Husker du, Minute men and Black Flag).

Not touring for huge profits (just enough to get by) or to seek fame, just a pure love of music, travelling and adventure.
The archetypal image of a bluesman, outcast from... proper society and stalked by personal demons.

Welcome BAD KITTY!
A delicious, award winning vanilla Porter, from Yorkshire Brewery, Brass Castle Brewery
The chewy caramel and chocolate balances well with the toasted malts in this unfined porter, giving a sweetness with a subtle bitter aftertaste.
If you haven’t tried it yet then you must, it won’t disappoint!
See you at the end of the bar, where I’ll be sipping a pint myself 🍻

Blind Dead McJones was never a fan of being in the spotlight, no number 1 singles, cheesy videos or appearances on celebrity cooking programmes. A true Bluesman in every sense of the word, living a life on the road shrouded in mystery. Some say he died years ago in an agriculture related accident, some say he is part of the keyzer soze family and some say he now makes Halloween costumes for dogs. One thing we know for sure is he is responsible for bringing together the blues rock behemoth that is The Blind Dead McJones Band.
