Tailors Gin: Leeds’ Best Kept Secret?

The scene is set for an evening out amongst the bars and bright lights of Leeds, but there’s one problem – what are you going to wear? Enter Tailors Gin: “tailors’ shop by day, illustrious 1920s gin lounge by night.”

At Tailors Gin you could, theoretically, kill two birds with one stone and drink and dress at the same time. The vintage décor – combined with a collection of sewing machines, suits and chandeliers – is a reflection of what makes Tailors Gin one of Leeds’s most unique and exciting venues.

Set up by Matthew Wignall in 2018, on offer are tailored suits of the finest quality, made from British and Italian cloths and proudly hand-made right here in Yorkshire. Spearheaded by a team of expert tailors who have had “years of experience” on “Saville Row and global fashion houses” – as well as adept bartenders ready to serve you the best in quality – Tailors Gin really does offer the best of both worlds.

Located in Leeds city centre’s Grand Arcade, Tailors is tucked away neatly and is something of a hidden gem. It provides a relaxed and cultured get-away from the hustle and bustle down the road, while the incredibly friendly staff make you feel right at home with their excellent customer service and sociable nature.

A wide variety of home-made gin sits behind a vintage peg-letter menu board. Any visitor is sure to be spoilt for choice with the vast range of quality flavours available, at an affordable price as well. Rave reviews can be found online, while an aesthetically pleasing aura can be found inside. All in all, Tailors is an essential spot for your Leeds itinerary and is sure to become a household name very soon.
