The Merchant

What better way to start a bank holiday weekend than with a venue launch party?

Opening this Friday, The Merchant brings a raft of international influences to the corner of Slater Street. Serving over 50 beers, pizza by the slice and equipped with a dedicated gin-parlour, the eclectic venue is the latest venture by some of the folk who’ve previously brought us Chibuku, The Warehouse Project and Leeds favourite, Belgrave Music Hall.

A rotating roster of the North-Wests best street food vendors will be taking over the Canteen — whilst Night Crawler Pizza serve up NY-inspired slices day and night.

The identity saw us take a contemporary approach to the idea of the neighbourhood pub; a concept which has been carried through into The Merchants interior; creating a bright space to eat, drink and dance.

You’ll find us hanging out there all summer — the Garden looks particularly Wolf friendly.
