It used to be an old Victorian pie factory but its since been converted into a multi-purpose venue. They do alternative nights with bands that support a wide and diverse cross section of people in Leeds. They do film screening and meet-ups there and are an LGBT friendly but not exclusive space. You need to be a member to drink there but it only costs £1 for the year and you can pay on the door... Very close to the apartment

Getting Around
Leeds is a very easy to navigate. I typically only travel as far as Headingly, Kirkstall, Bramley, Holbeck and around the city centre. The apartment is a 10 minute walk to the bus station/market. If you get the numbers 6, 97 or 28 they will take you right through the city and up as far as Headingly. The number 56 does the same but also goes up past St James Hospital. There isn't a bus that goes from the train station to my apartment or the bus station. So, if you're carrying a lot of stuff I'd suggest you get a taxi using Uber or the white cabs that will be directly opposite the entrance to the train station. If the driver doesn't recognise the name "Saxton Apartments" say "Saxton Garden's behind the Ibis Budget" and they'll soon recognise it. Average fair from the train station to my house is about £3.50

It’s got a bit of a Greenwich Village dive bar thing going on, with DJs, live music, readings and art exhibitions on. So sit back and enjoy the entertainment with one of their beers or delve into their menu of meat-free Veg Butcher goodness, which they’ve shipped in from the Netherlands specially." - Leeds List said this...
