An exciting new concept is coming to Leeds.
Hot on the heels of the pop-up bar summer sensation that was Rum Shack, The Hedonist Project are back with another one-off concept.
The Liquor Store & Whisky Parlour will provide Leeds with the finest whiskies and most unique cocktails, and will reside in what is set to be The Hedonist Project’s permanent fortress; the old Wok On site on Lower Briggate.
This exciting new venture is a collaboration between The Hedonist Project and Scotch whisky powerhouse Diageo, who have joined forces to curate the themed bar, which is set to feature a dreamy selection of 60 plus fine whiskies.
Each one will be offered by the dram, and if you take a shine to a particular tipple, some bottles can be purchased at retail price as take out only, to enjoy at home or to gift a loved one.
The interior of the bar itself will pay tribute to its Scottish heritage, with a warm and cosy ambience and rustic décor.
There will be many weird and wonderful concoctions, all designed to catch the eye of even the most discerning whisky connoisseur; how does a Salted Caramel Rusty Nail, complete with a side-serving of Lagavulin fudge tickle your fancy?
Launching late November, the bar will open up its doors between 8am-11pm, offering a pallet punching brunch from morning to mid-afternoon and a menu of small plates in the evening; all inspired by its Scottish anchor, and as carefully selected as the drinks list.
Those dropping in on a Friday or Saturday can enjoy in-store whisky tasting sessions, and you can also expect one-off liquor and food pairing evenings, which will feature some of the world’s leading whisky ambassadors.
