The North Brewing Company opened its doors this week offering beer, food and community cohesion.
By Jay Partington
The tap room will be offering a wide range of craft beers as well as providing wine, cocktails and even Chinese street food through their in-house restaurant Little Bao Boy. The quirky, new bar has opened in a revamped and lively area of Leeds that has been misrepresented in the past.
Nadine, who is a bar tender at the boozer, told Leeds Hacks the North Brewing Company wanted ‘to give a more upmarket feel and a proper bar vibe’. She then said how the bar provides a chance to ‘make a name’ for the company and the community.
The south part of Leeds city centre is usually misrepresented in the news as being crime-ridden and troublesome, however Nadine believes this new social hub will ‘create employment opportunities’ as well as keeping ‘business and money local to Leeds’.
Try dealing with the plague of burglaries from homes and cars that are blighting South Leeds at the moment.
This demands Officers on the street, not sat on their arse investigating fraud paperwork. #WheneverYou’reReady

With news stories about prostitution and criminal activity being rife, the south of Leeds struggles to instate business deals and bring money into the impoverished areas. A vast amount of south Leeds has been named as being in the most deprived 10% in England covering Holbeck and Hunslet.
Nadine has urged the ‘vast amount of businesses and people close to the bar’ to come and visit, the vast array of craft beers and unique production is a pulling factor. To better a distorted section of a thriving city and help to boost the idea of local produce the North Brewing Company are asking people to come for a drink, as they’ve ‘got something for everybody’.
