Leeds’ The Social to reopen

Sister bar to the renowned Brudenell Social Club, the Arena Quarter venue has been closed for a refurbishment to mark its 10th birthday, but will reopen this week.

Ready to embark on its second decade, the bar has been transformed and updated with a modernised layout, design and furnishings, the operator said.

This includes a new shopfront, and the additions of booth seating, classic Chesterfield sofas, an extended bar and wood-panelling.

Opened in 2014 by the teams behind iconic Leeds’ venues The Brudenell Social Club and Sela Bar, The Social has become a mainstay of Leeds’ bar scene by offering a low-key and relaxed environment seven days a week, keeping its focus simply on creating a great and friendly bar experience.

Nathan Clark, owner of The Social said: “We’re really pleased to still be standing here with The Social ten years on and with the community that has grown around it.  We’ve been wanting to get this update and refurb done for a long-time now, and imprint some of our own character on the space, so our tenth year seemed to us like the best time to get it all underway.

“As with our other sites like the Brudenell or the Black Horse in Otley, our locals and regulars are the heart of the place, so maintaining its charm was really important to us, and I’m very pleased with what our team has created for the next phase of the venue. Here’s to the next ten years!”
