Best of the brunch
Having been denied the simple little pleasures in life for so long, there’ll be no shortage of people looking to enjoy some boozy bottomless brunches over the summer months.
Drinks retailer The Bottle Club recently uncovered which cities in the UK were the best for offering the ultimate brunch menu and it was no surprise to see Leeds right up there.
So to get you in the mood, here’s their list of the top five spots for a boozy, bottomless brunch in the city.
1. Sky Lounge
Who doesn’t like a room with a view when tucking into their brunch and it was no surprise to see the Sky Lounge in Holbeck topping the list for the best boozy brunch in a Yorkshire city. Scoring an impressive 81 out of 100 – the Granary Wharf bar is perfect if you are looking for a show stopper venue for that long-overdue catch up.
Whilst you would think a dreamy skyline brunch would come at a high price, the Sky Lounge scored 10 out of 10 for value offering 90 minutes of unlimited pornstar martinis, two courses and free-flowing drinks for just £25 per person.
