Granary Wharf is set to welcome a new café bar and club to its central Leeds waterfront location.

Launching next month following a £1m investment, Canal Club aims to be the go-to place for great live music, exceptional food and inventive cocktails.

The Canal Café will open it’s doors in spring 2022, offering guests a selection of coffees as well as breakfast options and sweet treats.

Guests will be able to enjoy a selection of cocktails and tuck into world tapas dishes and light bites like Beet Hummus Toast, sliders, salt and pepper squid as well as sweet potato crostini.

Speaking ahead of the launch, operations director Jade Renner, said: “We’ve put a lot of thought into Canal Club.

“From how we want it to look to the type of food and drinks we’re choosing to serve, no stone has been left unturned. The pandemic gave us time to think about what it is that people are looking for when they socialise now.

“People tend to go out earlier, but still want to feel like they’re getting the music and atmosphere they might expect on an evening.

“We’ve covered all bases and are certain Canal Club will be the new go-to destination for those who like something a little different.”

The investment in the premises has created living walls and ceilings, covered in palm leaves and bougainvillaea. Booths are available throughout, and table service will be available to all guests.

Renner added: “We want to look after our guests so the seated table service enables us to offer everyone the opportunity to unwind, without having to take it in turns to go up to the bar.

“It’s an eclectic space, with lots of picture-perfect fixtures and fittings. Our food and drinks are also exceptional and are presented in a way that adds to the whole experience for our guests.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming people when we open next month because we do have to be seen to be believed.”
