A new legacy for Leeds’s already diverse nightlife and leisure portfolio is set to launch in the new year, with the city’s first high-end dine, drink and dance experience. Located in the Electric Press, just off the iconic Millennium Square, the new venue will be brought to you by the driving force behind celebrity and footballers VIP haunt, Dollhouse, multi-platinum selling musician and TV star, Tom Zanetti and business partner, Kane Towning.
The exclusive late-night dining concept will be the first of its kind in the city, taking inspiration from premium destination venues across London, Dubai and Ibiza. Guests can dine in the immersive restaurant, indulging in a selection of globally inspired small plates while enjoying live entertainment and sensory lighting. As the evening progresses the lighting gets turned down a notch and the music gets turned up as diners drink and dance late into the evening, with DJ’s and performers providing the hottest soundtrack under the LED displays. It’s an entire evening in one destination.
Speaking about the project, Tom Zanetti says: “We were ahead of the game with Dollhouse and spotted a gap in the market for that VIP vibe that no other venue offered - a glamorous, VIP-style club for the cities’ elite. That’s where this brand-new venue bridges the gap. Leeds has one of the best nightlife scenes in the country, however. it is crying out for that cool, late night dining concept that people currently have to travel to London, Manchester and overseas for. It’s time to level Leeds up again and hold our own against the other major cities.”
Split over two levels, the venue’s ground floor has a stylish lounge with VIP tables on offer, as well as a heated indoor courtyard and outside terrace in Millennium Square. The first floor plays host to the restaurant with luxury VIP booths that can booked for dining and late-night drinking. The restaurant also boasts a private dining area for up to 30 people, ideal for special occasions. There’s also a stage for live performers with a state-of-the-art VOID sound system and a one-of-a-kind bespoke LED light system.
Kane Towning continued: “There are some incredible venues around the country and I respect what they’re doing, but it does bug me that people have to travel to other cities for that late night dining vibe. It’s time Leeds had its own flagship dine, drink and dance venue. If you want to eat, drink and dance currently, you have to visit two or maybe three venues. We are giving you the entire night out all under one roof.
You can enjoy globally inspired dishes, creative cocktails, live performers, and the hottest DJ’s, all under one roof. This is like nothing the city has ever seen. The interior design and layout is completely unique and fresh. The sound, lighting and entertainment are all a first for Leeds and I’m excited to see how people react when they experience it.”
Over £300k has been invested in the project, the name of which is being kept under wraps until nearer the launch. Stylish, cool and edgy bespoke interior design has been commissioned for the space, spanning the whole venue and adding a luxury look and feel befitting of the concept. Delivering both glamour and ambience, the immersive restaurant will feature sensory lighting and stage shows throughout the evening, before transforming into one of the best late-night destinations in the city.
Tom concluded: “It’s one of a kind and we’re looking forward to introducing the people of Leeds and visitors to this amazing city to something fresh, cool and different. This will be a venue people will be travelling to from all around the UK. We’re taking the success of Dollhouse and going to a whole other level again with this new venue.”
A new chapter in Leeds’s illustrious nightlife is about to begin. Ready to play?
