Popular Leeds-based Cafe bar, Residence 74 is set to expand with a third venue due to land in Headingley next month.
Residence 74 has fast become a favourite in the LS16 suburb of the city, known for its tasty breakfast and brunch, inventive cocktails, and stylish New York-inspired décor, backed up by a string of glowing press and TripAdvisor reviews.
Their latest project is considerably larger, set over two floors and sees the winning brand formula repurposed for the city’s thriving student area. With a strong focus on best-in-class cocktails, a brand new small and large plate menu to accompany the breakfast, brunch and indulgent dessert offering.
Residence 74 will channel a fresh and modish interior design with exposed brick, moody lighting, neon signage and lush plants. The venue's floor-to-ceiling windows create a bright and airy space with plenty of natural light, with space for 45 covers in the restaurant and 16 in the bar. The first floor has been designed to cater to private parties and on weekends, it will play host to the brand-new Bottomless Brunch, which is destined to be a must for Headingley regulars.
