Whatever your vibe, Escapism Bars are the place to party. With seven unique bars each boasting a distinctive theme, we can promise you the perfect venue for your event – whether it’s a sophisticated gathering or an all-out party night.

Located bang in the heart of Leeds, our family of bars includes a twist on a vintage cocktail joint, a rock n’ roll Mariachi tequila bar, and a Polynesian Tiki paradise – so there really is something for everyone! And if choosing is too difficult, why not try one of our group tours and experience several venues in one night?

Our experienced party planners will pull out all the stops to create an incredible package bespoke to you. We know that each guest and every party has exclusive requirements, and we have everything covered – whether that’s organising the catering, a champagne reception, a private DJ, magician or band.
