Avenue HQ will open a public rooftop bar at its second work hub in Leeds next month.

The company has spent £3m on transforming its building on East Parade into a flexible working community with 200 co-working spaces and 35 offices.

The bar will be operated by the Avenue brand East Parade Social and be open to the public from 10am to midnight, with the exception of Fridays and Saturdays when the licence is extended until 1am.

Craft beers, scenic views

Visitors will be able to enjoy scenic views of the entire city.

Craft beers from some of the city’s breweries will be included on the drinks menu at the 60-capacity space, in addition to bar staples and freshly made seasonal cocktails.

The five-floor building will also accommodate event spaces including a secret garden, downstairs theatre, and on-site eatery, open to the public as well as tenants.

The flexible workspace company opened its first space in Mann Island, Liverpool, in June last year. The space also contains a fully licensed bar, operated by sub-brand Cuppacoffee, which is open from 10am to 11pm every day.

Matthew Kennedy, CEO of Avenue HQ said: “Leeds is an exciting and vibrant city that has become the perfect base for growing businesses."

'Informal but professional'

Kennedy continued: “We pride ourselves on being a community-driven business offering an informal but professional business facility, where like-minded individuals, no matter what sector or size your business is, can work together.

“The nature of work is changing and our culture is focused on providing our members with the best possible environment to ensure they get the most out of their working life.”

It follows news​ that the London Olympia exhibition centre is set to open a Pergola venue on its roof including a bar and restaurants in September.
