NORTHERN MONK TO OPEN NEW LEEDS CITY CENTRE VENUE IN FORMER ASSEMBLY UNDERGROUND
NORTHERN Monk is opening a new Leeds city centre venue – taking over the historic former Assembly Underground.
Dubbed The Northern Market, the venue will feature a food market, beer hall, and a range of frozen cocktails, with a fully stocked bar pouring the freshest Northern Monk beers from 10 tap lines and on-site beer tanks.
Confirmed food vendors include Falafel Guys, Big Buns and Six Slice Pizza with more set to be announced.
Located on Great George Street in Leeds city centre, The Northern Market is the brewery’s second venue in Leeds after The Old Flax Store on Marshall Street, which has been home to Northern Monk’s original brewery and Refectory taproom since 2014. They also have a Refectory bar in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
Co-founder of Northern Monk Russell Bisset said: “Our two current tap rooms are based in former textile mills where we’ve really celebrated their heritage and role in the North. The Northern Market sees us take on a 140-year-old Grade II listed building, directly opposite Leeds Town Hall in the heart of the city’s civic quarter. We can’t wait to give the building a new lease of life as the Northern Market, alongside our food vendors, while acknowledging its history and place in the city.”
The Northern Market is due to open by early November 2023.
