£3m Leeds social space, eatery and rooftop bar set for a Spring launch

After two years of planning and preparation, the “highly anticipated” social space, eatery and rooftop bar, Green Room, is set to open this Spring in Leeds.

Arriving just in time for summer, the vegan-friendly, multifunctional £3m venue will function as a coffee bar and eatery by day, and a bar by night.

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.

Food will be provided by award-winning vegan cafe Grön, who have made waves across the city with their feel-good plant-based food and Scandi-inspired Oakwood venue.

Green Room bar will also be stocked with craft beers and ales from award-winning local breweries, including Northern Monk, Kirkstall Brewery and Magic Rock. The rooftop bar will also serve up a selection of cocktails ranging from a watermelon mojito and peach margarita to a North Star espresso martini.

Green Room is the brainchild of two entrepreneurs, Will Habergham and Kirk Allen, who have spent the past decade working in clubs, events, and music festivals. New Zealander Will took inspiration for the concept from a trip to New Zealand, who have been at the forefront of championing venues that focus on recycling, sustainability, and a healthier lifestyle.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Director Kirk Allen (pictured right), said: “After a challenging two years spent planning, prepping, and renovating, we’re really excited to launch our concept in Leeds.

“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 next month.”

Fellow Director, Will Habergham (pictured left), added: “We’re really proud of the 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.

“The venue itself looks amazing, and is designed to work both in and outdoors, to cater to the often-unpredictable Leeds weather. We’re looking forward to summer 2022, when guests can expect some of the best BBQ’s and DJ-centric events the city has ever seen. Green Room offers something truly unique, and we hope the people of Yorkshire are ready to embrace our vision.”
