A Nation Of Shopkeepers, 27-37 Cookridge Street, Leeds, LS2 3AG – Visit Now

Situated in the heart of Leeds, A Nation of Shopkeepers is a multi-functioning 850-capacity space including a stunning, fully-contained outside courtyard. The bar, restaurant and events venue showcases work from local artists, hosts popular gig nights, and provides a wide menu of sumptuous food.

The people of Leeds flock to A Nation of Shopkeepers for food, art, beer, live music, DJ sets and the infamous Monday night pub quiz. With its quirky decor inspired by antique American thrift stores, it has been the go-to hub for chilled-out lunches, tasty dinners and vibrant nights out for the past eight years. With a great city centre location, close to the Town Hall and Millenium Square and just a short walk from the train station, A Nation of Shopkeepers is the perfect destination for your day and nighttime plans.

Dine in the eclectic, neon-lit interior, or step through the archway into a cosy, wind-sheltered courtyard – A Nation of Shopkeepers offers you the best of both worlds. Adorned with fairy lights, covered by parasols and with plenty of booths for larger group get-togethers, the eclectic outdoor space earns its nickname of ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’.

Serving food from lunch to dinner, the restaurant has something for everyone; tender, succulent chicken, meat-free treats, pizzas and nachos, brunch and bubbles, all day breakfasts, quality pub grub and towering, juicy burgers. There’s a great selection of local craft beers on offer too, or 2-for-£10 cocktails for those with a sweeter tooth.

Whether you’re looking for a chilled spot for a lazy afternoon drink or somewhere to get your groove on at the weekend, we love A Nation of Shopkeepers’ welcoming, laid back atmosphere. You can make yourself at home surrounded by brilliant art and music, while tucking into some delectable treats.
