· Joseph Sheerin · New & Coming Soon

Drum kits, axe-throwing and curries – they’re all coming to Leeds.

Rosa's Thai Cafe

From the city’s first axe-throwing centre to the arrival of Yorkshire’s most decorated Indian restaurant, check out the new additions coming soon to Leeds.

Ready to find out about new openings on their way to Leeds? Then you’re in luck, because we have four exciting arrivals to tell you about. There’s a new Thai restaurant from a well-known name, a new Leeds restaurant from a legendary Bradford curry house and the city’s first competitive axe-throwing centre. Take a look and get the lowdown on what’s coming soon.


Have you ever tried axe throwing? Now’s your chance, because Timberjacks is opening in Leeds. It will have ten lanes, each one kitted out with a target board that blurs the lines between darts and archery. You can compete against your friends as you send your axe hurtling towards the board. You get five throws each and you have to get as many points as possible – the outside ring is worth one point and increases by one point per ring until you reach the bullseye, which is worth a cool five points.

Timberjacks will open at Burley Hill Trading Estate on Friday 17th May 2019.

Rosa’s Thai Cafe

Rosa's Thai Cafe

They’ve already won an army of fans across their 15 London eateries, but now Rosa’s Thai Cafe is coming to Leeds. They’re opening their second Northern restaurant in Trinity this May and you can expect a vibrant venue awash with foliage. Tuck into a menu inspired by owner Saiphin Moore’s childhood growing up on the family farm in northern Thailand. There are classic dishes like the Chicken Red Curry and Pad Thai alongside lesser known eats like the Grilled Sausage Northern Style and Deep-Fried Larb Patties.

Rosa’s Thai Cafe will open in Trinity Leeds on Saturday 4th May 2019.

Drummers Only

If you’re a keen drummer, you’ll be excited about the new shop opening in Leeds. Drummers Only started in Glasgow over a decade ago and it’s making its way south this summer. Drums are front and centre here – it’s run by specialist, experienced drummers and will sell everything from complete drum kits to essential accessories. Look out for their regular in-store events too, which will bring some of the world’s best drummers to Leeds.

Drummers Only will open in on Springwell Road, Holbeck in Summer 2019.
