A Nation of Shopkeepers is one of the most famous and storied venues in Leeds that has always had a big focus on music. A big revamp in 2017 saw them introduce amazing food and a huge selection of beers on tap.
The perfect place to come for a night out with friends and to load up with one of their massive burgers with delicious toppings before carrying on to a big night out.
This restaurant-meets-diner has a super casual and fun atmosphere where the food is the star of the show. Proper portions, big flavours and friendly service. Just remember, you’ll want to wash the burger down with one of their great cocktails. The perfect place to start a night out with friends.
Almost Famous have locations around the north of England and their burgers are so pretty and droolworthy that they take over Instagram feeds like nothing else. They also happen to taste outrageous. As far as Yorkshire burgers go this is as beautiful a burger as you’ll set eyes on.
You’ll find Patty Smith’s at the Belgrave Music Hall, which is a bonus, because you’ll be able to listen to live music and sample their great selection of craft beer. The burgers here dirty and delicious.
Their signature Dirty Burger is a feast of Yorkshire steak mince patty, chipotle mayo, cheddar and all the trimmings in a brioche bun.
Don’t Tell The Duke were always known for their high-quality pub grub and juicy burgers. Now, they’ve recently added tasty little sliders to the menu. Get the Surf n’ turf slider with a lobster patty and a lil beef patty with lots of truffle butter to drizzle over the top.
They always use ethically sourced meat and serve ’em up in double butter brioche buns. So yes, the burgers are downright incredible.
The Pit is a one-stop shop for all sorts of tasty dishes. Healthy superbowls, loaded fries and all sorts of great cheat meals.

East 59th is a New York Rooftop Bar & Grill, so expect contemporary American dining and juicy burgers. There’s only three burgers on the menu (beef, veggie and chicken) but they prove that sometimes simple is best.
Their beef burger is a feast of 4oz beef patty, jalapeno and tomato relish and garlic mayo. Yum.
