A singles bar with style – Manahatta Greek Street – 29 East Parade, LS1 5PS
When you first step foot inside Manahatta you’ll probably do a little double take because it genuinely
feels like you’ve been transported to New York. The decor, great music and incredibly chilled vibes make
you feel instantly at home… and like you’re uber cool just for choosing to drink here! The atmosphere is
perfect for a single person to hang out, meet people, and hopefully connect with someone special.
The Maven – 1 Call Lane, LS1 7DH
The term ‘hidden gem’ could have been invented for The Maven. It’s more low-key than Manahatta, but
don’t let that give you the impression that it’s anything other than super cool and sophisticated. It’s the
kind of bar that focuses on great music and wonderful cocktails, with a clientele that’s respectful and
switched on – which makes it a great place to meet relaxed and refined singles… just like you!
Cuckoo – 37 Call Lane, LS1 7BT
Sophisticated and cool are great, but what if you’re looking for quirky and fun instead? Well, fortunately,
Leeds comes up trumps again in the form of another brilliant Call Lane bar, Cuckoo. Serving cocktails,
craft beer and delicious food in an environment designed to create a party atmosphere, Cuckoo is all
about letting your hair down and having a good time – perfect for meeting a new party loving partner in
Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen – 1-1A Cross Belgrave Street, LS2 8JP
We think that the Belgrave is one of the best singles bars in Leeds for very good reason. There’s always
something going on – be it live music, wonderful street food, comedy or art exhibitions – and with three
floors you’re surrounded by like-minded people. The staff are incredibly friendly and the people who use
the Belgrave are a welcoming and relaxed bunch, so if you’re single it’s a really lovely bar to hang out
and chat without pressure.
Our city has so many brilliant bars that it’s hard to narrow them down to a shortlist, but the Trafalgar
Street car park team have had their say and think that these are the best singles bars in Leeds, so now
it’s up to you to make the next move!
