Crafthouse and Angelica will occupy the fifth and sixth floors of Leeds’ luxury shopping and lifestyle development which opens its doors in spring 2013. They will be the group’s first UK venues outside of London.
With a wrap-around terrace and panoramic city views, Angelica restaurant and bar on the sixth floor aims to become a destination for food and cocktails. A central feature will be a “stunning” cocktail bar which promises to offer “exciting” new drinks brands and “serious cocktails” from a team of skilled mixologists.
D&D London added that the space would provide “a restaurant of international quality”, serving from breakfast right through to late at night.
Crafthouse will showcase good-quality British produce, taking inspiration from the history of Leeds and Yorkshire. Located on the fifth floor, the restaurant is accessed directly via a lift from Boar Lane or from within the shopping centre.
The 144-cover space will offer views across the city and pay homage to Leeds’ rich culture and heritage with a focus on high-quality food and wine.
The restaurants, with interiors designed by Conran & Partners, will launch on March 21.
Trinity Leeds, which has been developed by Land Securities, will also feature a food mall concept specialising in “street food”, curated by Richard Johnson, the food journalist and broadcaster. By November, 100 per cent of the spaces had been let including Notes, Pho, Tortilla and Chicago Rib Shack.
The line-up will include a champagne and cocktail bar from the team behind Manchester’s The Circle private members’ club. It follows the opening of the Circle 360 bar at Manchester’s Trafford Centre in 2011.
