23-25a York Place, Leeds LS1 2EY (Map)
Proof if it were needed that gin is back big time comes in the form of Leeds’ first dedicated gin bar at boutique hotel, The New Ellington. Having gained recognition in the BBC’s Olive magazine, The Times, The Evening Post and many other publications, the Gin Bar is fast becoming a mecca for gin lovers. Not surprising really when you look behind the bar at the line up of one of twenty gins with a great range from Genever to Old Toms, to classic London dry to new wave gins including loads of Gintime favourites naturally. The cocktail list has everything you would want from a gin bar – the classics, the forgotten classics and even a special Martini page. There’s some cocktails you won’t see anywhere else like the Rhubarb Aviator, Duke Collins, English Treacle, Safari Sling and Pineapple & Coriander Martini.
