Two new tenants have been secured for The Electric Press in Leeds city centre, with restaurant and competitive socialising brand Whistle Punks and restaurant/bar, Baby Doll, both set to open at the site.

The leases have been agreed by international real estate advisor Savills, joint with Pudney Shuttleworth, on behalf of DTZ Investors.

Whistle Punks, which specialises in urban axe throwing, has agreed a new 10-year-lease for a 7,275 sq ft site, which will become the brand’s fifth location with sites already open in London, Manchester, Bristol and Birmingham.

Also opening at The Electric Press will be Baby Doll, the new restaurant/bar concept from DJ Tom Zanetti to complement the existing Doll House located on Call Lane. Baby Doll has taken a 4,745 sq ft unit, also on a 10 year lease.

The Electric Press occupies the south side of Millennium Square in the city centre and boasts a range of bars and restaurants with a focus on high quality offerings and late night refreshment.

Josh Howe, associate director, Savills Retail, said: “The Electric Press is one of Leeds’ key leisure destinations, home to a high calibre selection of bars and restaurants.

“Whistle Punks and Baby Doll will add a further two high quality destinations to the scheme and we look forward to welcoming them in due course.”
