Leeds’ night time economy will get a new addition in the new year with the city’s first late night dining concept.
Located in the Electric Press, the new venue is being developed by the driving force behind celebrity and footballers VIP haunt, Dollhouse, multi-platinum selling musician and TV star, Tom Zanetti and business partner, Kane Towning and aims to be the first high-end dine, drink and dance experience in the city.
Inspired by premium destination venues across London, Dubai and Ibiza over £300,000 has been invested into the project, the name of which is being kept under wraps until the launch.
However once open, guests will be able to enjoy selection of globally inspired small plates alongside live entertainment and sensory lighting. As the evening progresses the lighting gets turned down a notch and the music gets turned up as diners drink and dance late into the evening, with DJ’s and performers providing the hottest soundtrack under the LED displays.
Speaking about the project, Zanetti said: “We were ahead of the game with Dollhouse and spotted a gap in the market for that VIP vibe that no other venue offered – a glamorous, VIP-style club. That’s where this brand-new venue bridges the gap. Leeds has one of the best nightlife scenes in the country, however it is crying out for that cool, late night dining concept that people currently have to travel to London, Manchester and overseas for. It’s time to level Leeds up again and hold our own against the other major cities.”
Split over two levels, the venue’s ground floor has a stylish lounge with VIP tables on offer, as well as a heated indoor courtyard and outside terrace in Millennium Square. The first floor plays host to the restaurant with luxury VIP booths that can booked for dining and late-night drinking. The restaurant also boasts a private dining area for up to 30 people, ideal for special occasions.
Towning added: “There are some incredible venues around the country and I respect what they’re doing, but it’s time Leeds had its own flagship dine, drink and dance venue. If you want to eat, drink and dance currently, you have to visit two or maybe three venues. We are giving you the entire night out all under one roof. This is like nothing the city has ever seen. The interior design and layout is completely unique and fresh. The sound, lighting and entertainment are all a first for Leeds and I’m excited to see how people react when they experience it.”
Zanetti concluded: “It’s one of a kind. This will be a venue people will be travelling to from all around the UK. We’re taking the success of Dollhouse and going to a whole other level again with this new venue.”
