Yorkshire property investor welcomes new cocktail bar at Vicar Lane scheme

A Yorkshire property investor and car parking operator welcomes a new cocktail bar to its Vicar Lane scheme.

Tabula Rasa now occupies a 2,124 sq ft venue in 8 Eastgate. The site is owned by the Leeds-based Town Centre Securities PLC.

The premises has overall capacity for up to 55 guests and is the latest to venture to join scheme. Other businesses include the restaurant The Man behind the Curtain, designer fashion brand Flannels and Hairitage barber shop.

Charles Newman, associate director at TCS, said: “We are delighted to welcome Tabula Rasa to our Vicar Lane scheme which further enhances the high-end offer for our customers.

“Our prominent location between the established Victoria Quarter and Victoria Gate brings with it discerning shoppers looking for high quality establishments, and we are confident the new café and Aperitivo Cocktail bar will prove appealing to this clientele.”

Manager and owner Filippos Filippopoulos commented: “We selected this site due to its prime city centre location in Leeds with a high footfall pedestrian area. Close to the popular Victoria Gate and John Lewis, as well as having many other high-quality retailers nearby.

“We felt the addition of a hub where people can grab a coffee and a pastry whilst shopping, as well as enjoy fine drinks, champagne, cocktails and an extensive food menu including sharing platters and charcuterie boards on an evening is a great addition to the neighbourhood.

“Our close proximity to Leeds’ Kirkgate Market has meant that Tabula Rasa has already been able to engage in supporting local businesses to source our ingredients and we look forward to establishing relationships with other regional suppliers moving forward.”
