Located on Duncan Street, just around the corner from the bustling Call Lane, distrikt is Leeds most unique underground bar.

Founded in 2009, distrikt was the brainchild of five highly innovative yet unique individuals all specializing in a certain aspect of the bar industry, hoping to offer Leeds a fresh perspective on the bar/restaurant environment. Freshly made Mediterranean and Middle Eastern tapas from our award winning chefs, a diverse and quality drinks menu all mixed with some of the best local, national and internationally recognized talented djs and live music performances, vibrant art from leeds rawest talents and most importantly offer you a warm and welcoming invite to our little home made from love ... :-)

The key mantra for the team has always been substance over style. Whether its a broad spectrum of clientele who have enjoyed the award winning food and cocktail events, the international dj's who would usually fill arena's playing to our much loved regulars for free or simply people passing the day with the various offers which rotate throughout the week, distrikt has definitely established itself as a quality place to eat, hang out, drink and dance in Leeds.
