The basement, Sandway Business Center, Shannon Street, Leeds LS9 8SS

The basement has recently opened in an urban part of Leeds City Center. Just a 5-minute walk from the main bus station and 15 minutes from the train station. It also has a car park so getting to us is never a problem.
Inside, the basement has a meeting room, kitchen and event space that seats 80 or 100 standing.

The space is ideal for:

  • * Talks and Seminars
  • * Rehearsals
  • * Workshops
  • * Meet Ups
  • * Events such as Comedy Clubs, Poetry Slams, Spoken word, Crafts, etc. (no loud music)

An extra special touch is that we have the only Vegan Sarsaparilla (soft drink) Bar in Leeds and perhaps Yorkshire!
Known as Sarsae in Asia, the basement is pleased to be serving the classic Baldwin's Sarsaparilla cordial, a drink they have produced in the United Kingdom continuously since 1844. It brings a taste to Leeds that many remembers from their past.
Worth a visit on its own. The drink can be consumed heated, to warm you on a cold winters night, or tastes equally as delightful when served chilled.

You probably know Sarsaparilla best as a sweet soft drink, but did you know Sarsaparilla is thought to have many medicinal properties and used to be drunk as a curative tonic?

Other Non-Alcoholic drinks are available but perhaps you’ll find them not as tasty.

Hire the space @ just £19.97 per hour members rate or £29.97 per hour non-members. Minimum 2 hours. Click here to become a member.
