It battles for the title as one of the swankiest (watch the spelling) bars in Leeds – and rightly so!

Despite it also taking the title as the middle class version of Whetherspoons, Brown's is a great bar for a meeting point, but whether that's a good thing, why don't you decide?

Slap bang right in the middle of the city centre, Brown's prides itself on giving the customer an excellent service, with the flair of cocktail making from a bunch of talented bar staff. They have a range of cocktails on offer – from the classic Cosmopolitan, to their own Browns version of the Mai Tai, but there is certainly something for everyone on the menu.

The long bar takes centre stage in the middle of the building and when you walk in there is plenty of room to socialize because it just opens out on a huge scale. An exceptional wine list is the big hit for Browns. While I was there, most of the people had a lovely bottle of red to share while suited up on a dinner date or in an awkward business meeting.

And this was the afternoon. At night it opens up into a really sophisticated bar that makes you feel wealthier than you actually are. Prices of drinks vary, but take more money than you should, because your wallet could take a battering, as the normal beer prices can be up to £4.50 a pint. Wine is reasonable and you can purchase a bottle for around £12. But that didn't stop it being one of the busiest bars in Leeds that day. I have been told the food isn't far off spectacular either, but that's another day out.

Like I said, get there for the first drink of the night, that's not necessarily a bad thing because it really is a fantastic meeting spot.
