Good places for lunch / nice record shops / vintage clothes shops recommendations would be appreciated
Honourable mentions to Manchester, Edinburgh and Bristol.
theres plenty of nice little bars/restaurants to eat, all around the city centre
Crash Records is the best music store
dunno about vintage clothes, only place i know is blue rinse
not amazing though although i haven't been much in the last couple of years
village is a wanky magazine and zine shop at the corn exchange that would be right up the average diser's street.
colours may vary is a similar shop that does a bigger variety of stuff, stationery and prints and stuff. housed inside a block of artists studios too.
get the bus to bradford. at the media museum you can pretend to be on the corrie set and they normally have good exhibitions. also bradfords a good place.
dont really know about food (although there's plenty of burger places), records or vintage clothing sorry, but here you go http://www.wow247.co.uk/2015/06/25/best-record-shops-leeds/
They'll let you play it if you ask them!
I think Jumbo is the best record shop in Leeds. It's in the Merrion Centre.
Go to the Brudenell for a pint- its also the best small gig venue in the north by my estimation.
i'll report back
Bundobust for lunch and nice ale.
Loads of gig venues, great bars and restaurants
Record shops, Jumbo & Crash, brudenell does a vinyl fair every couple of months
Lunch I'd go to friends of ham
There's a few vintage clothes shops around the corn exchange
Leeds Arena for proper gigs.
fine if you like that kind of thing, but if you like that kind of thing you're pretty mediocre
it must be pretty awful to wake up in the morning and realise you're you.
but it doesn't really define it and after returning from london after 3 and a half years, it's not a soul-destroying place to be in the day-to-day
on a genuinely positive note, i can't really think of anything you'd want from a UK city that leeds doesn't have, tbh. so many good days out and things to within 30 minutes on a train, as well.
Aside from the previously mentioned Nation of Shopkeepers also has plenty of interesting events on and a decent food menu.
Fantastic city, fantastic bants.
kind of like a couple of the more expensive cocktail bars there (like The Skylounge at The Hilton), which I've never been into before.
lots of decent bars. Brudenell is really good, and Nation Of Shopkeepers do some nice Sweet Potato Fries.
one thing that irritates me is that a lot of lads my age from Leeds sit on seats kind of diagonally and rest an elbow on the back of their chair, sort of leaning in to the person they're talking to. don't get that.
meaning "people of the fast-flowing river and nice record shops", in reference to the River Aire which still flows through the city and Jumbo Records, housed in the city's St John's Shopping Centre. This name originally referred to the forested area covering most of the British kingdom of Elmet and containing numerous good places for lunch, which existed during the 5th century into the early 7th century. Bede states in the fourteenth chapter of his Ecclesiastical History, in a discussion of an altar surviving from a church erected by Edwin of Northumbria, that it is located in ...regione quae vocatur Loidis (Latin, "the region which contains a great number of vintage clothes shops"). An inhabitant of Leeds is locally known as a Loiner, a word of uncertain origin. The term Leodensian is also used, from the city's Latin name.
Definitely want to live there one day. Wharf Chambers is rad, obvs Brude too. Great scene.
Whilst at the moment I know Manchester is better for what I want in a city, when I'm ready for kids and settling down and that, I reckon I'll move there.
I live in Chapel Allerton and it's dead nice, full of wankers including myself though.
Have got two excellent record shops in the city centre these days.
you south yorks loser
For 3 happy minutes...

Fuck it then

"There's a Harvey Nichols in Leeds that everyone goes on about, as if it's the answer to something."
yeah there's shops. Leeds seems disproportionately proud of having shops.
...'Knightsbridge Of The North' line? Proper cringed the first time I heard that.
if that's your kind of thing
