Cocktails In The City 2017 - Leeds



Cocktails in the City are in its 5th year of making Leeds blind drunk with their fantastic event. If after all these years you’re still none-the-wiser as to what it is all about then let me tell you: CITC is an annual event that runs around April time on a Thursday (because Thursday is the new Friday) and Friday (because everyone loves Friday) evening. A whole host of national and local bars participate and set up micro-bars in a set location. The location chosen for Leeds is the Town Hall, an iconic building in Leeds and a fabulous events space.

Ricci's Tapas & Cicchetti - Leeds




Ricci’s opened around a similar time that other Tapas restaurants in Leeds open such as Iberica and La Rambla. They’re all located on the same street (ish) in Leeds city centre and they’re all vying for your attention. Iberica already has a reputation in London and Manchester and so Leeds was a natural progression for them, La Rambla is the first of its kind therefore it had a bit of work to do on building its reputation. Ricci’s brings with it the reputation it has founded in Halifax. I don’t know many people who go out in to Halifax for a night out or chose it as an evening meal destination, there are a couple of people however who I know who have been (due to having friends or family in Halifax) who sing it’s praises. So although small Ricci’s does have a reputation to uphold that should bring in some new clientele in Leeds on the back of this.
