Visited on a night out and was nice vibe in there. We didn't have any food but did have some drinks and cocktails between us. Stayed for the night in the Marriott hotel which this place is a part of.

It's a very big space with lots of room to sit and socialise but the bar is terrible. They need to rethink the layout, get some more tills and train their staff on how to manage a busy bar.

Lovely city centre bar - good atmosphere.The prices were a bit steep but it is right in the city centre so probably should have been expected

Been here few times and would say the place does its job. Decent atmosphere with reasonable prices, bar staff moody every now and then, not a bad place for a casual catch up with friends, mega busy on weekends tho.

Live singer on accompanied by a guy on a guitar and both were very good singing alot of charts songs and old favourites the girl singer was excellent. Its quite a... More

This bar is part of the Marriott hotel, but its main entrance is off Boar Lane which is a very lively street at the weekend in the centre of Leeds. We have visited many times when we have been staying at the hotel. When it first opened it had a modern trendy feel and pleasant atmosphere. However it has now... More

We went here with our teenage boys for a light lunch. They have sandwiches, snacks and larger meals. We only had a coffee and soft drinks but the beer list wasn't exactly extensive. There was only one bitter on tap (Old Speckled Hen) and lagers plus bottled beers. The snacks were good but expensive for what you got and it... More

Overall great service and good tasting beer on a day off. Very quite but it was through the week just after lunch I'm sure it's very busy on a night.

1871 was the second place for food in our Yorkshire trip. Having had a a pretty substantial lunch and tired from walking around Leeds we decided to head back to the Marriot and eat in their 1871 Bar. The nice wide entrance way supervised by a smartly dressed doorman gave a nice airy feel to the place. Going for something... More

We called in last night and I have to say it is a cracking bar. It was very busy but plenty of staff so we were served very quickly. It is a big bar and the place was buzzing , will definitely be back !! No hesitation in recommending.
