The Social

The Social is the latest addition to the ever growing Northern Quarter on Merrion Street and as one of Leeds’ newest bars, it is setting its stall out as the ideal place to chill out with a pint of real ale and a bowl of hearty stew.

Opened as a partnership between the good folk behind two Leeds bars Sela Bar and Brudenell Social Club, The Social brings together the ethos of both places – good beer, good grub and good times – but in an atmosphere that’s perfect for a quiet pint or meeting up with friends for a natter and some food.

It’s one of Leeds best looking bars too with a strong aesthetic: bare walls, with some of the Brudenell’s posters hanging intermittently, and wide open space allowing for plenty of seating. There’s even a free foosball table, a perfect chance to show your superiority even if your talents diminish after a pint of pale ale or three.
