Below Stairs

Owned by brothers Mannie and Jamie, this hidden bar is one of our best kept secrets in the city. You might not have come across it before, but for those in the know this is the ultimate cocktail bar for sophisticated drinks.

Hidden away on South Parade down a flight of fire exit stairs, the excitement really starts from the moment you walk down. Inside the dark, cosy atmosphere is inviting, and the complimentary welcome cocktail is a lovely touch – giving you the opportunity to try their latest concoction.

Their menu offers the usual classic cocktails, but their speciality is in creating their own individual drinks, with a story showcasing the inspiration behind each one. They’re emotive and sensory - intended to transport you – to a Ramen bar in Kyoto, a Lavender field in Provence or dancing under the stars in Havana.

While they’re currently closed due to lockdown restrictions, we highly recommend visiting this place when they reopen, it’s an experience you won’t forget! In the meantime, you can order cocktails from their website to try at home, a great idea for a weekend date night on the sofa or to accompany a zoom quiz!

Jublo picks: 

Below Stairs is a firm favourite for the Jublo team – partly due to the fact its the only bar in Leeds we’ve found (so far) that serves a Pisco Sour. Our Head of Translations, Alejandra (originally from Chile – where it’s the national drink) introduced us to the cocktail and Below Stairs make a mean one!
