Step through the doors of Jake's bar in the centre of Call Lane, it is like stepping back in time.

Nestled in the basement, arm chairs and sofas are found buried in the coves of the building, the old wooden bar is down-lit, and the music is chilled. Jake's bar has an old-fashioned pub feel, at odds with the usual modern Leeds bars, Jake's bar makes for a nice relief.

The lighting is dim, the music is low-key, you expect to see an old man with a flat cap and a pint but instead the shelves are full of old whiskies and there is an eclectic mix of fresh and tasty cocktails and mixed drinks. The drinks menu reflects the ambience of the place; the cocktails are named after archetypal British people and places, the writing is fancy and accompanied with traditional anecdotes, and the cocktails are traditional yet with a modern twist. Take the Missionary Downfall; honey, lime and rum are reminiscent of the flavours of a daiquiri, yet the peach and pineapple notes and the addition of fresh mint give this cocktail a refreshing twist – delicious.

The cocktails, the cheapest at £6.50, are expensive but delicious, the modern twist on every cocktail always intrigues, and the ambience is incredible. Start your night at Jake's and make your way along Call Lane for an incredible night.
