The Girl in the Red Dress

Having just smashed the last assessment of the year, with our client communication audit going perfectly to plan, with thanks to a great dedicated team. World domination and job offers weren’t the only thing floating around in our Sparrow PR debrief. This opportunity to celebrate might have to wait until the final report has been submitted in January but an evening of drinks and cocktails at Leeds’ Sky Lounge is being promise and defiantly in our sights.

With Christmas around the corner and the countdown well and truly commenced, I wanted to share my Christmas evening with my gorgeous flat mates. Even with our busy schedules packed, we decided to get merry with some sophisticated fun at Leeds’ Electric Press.

Of course to begin every evening a full stomach is a must, but my review of the Red Chili Chinese will be posted a little later.

Luckily I had choice over Christmas party/night venues and with one swoop knocked two bars off the list of places I have wanted to visit in Leeds over the last four years, an obviously we dressed for the occasion, allowing me the chance to introduce ‘The Girl in the Red Dress”.

Firstly in the spirit of Christmas it had to be Champagne, the ultimate treat, one that only can be justified on a student budget in those special moments. Epernay, which opens into Electric Press’s beautiful courtyard heart, gave us such relaxed atmosphere and breathed an air of refinement, with bottles of crystal embellishing the intimate and stylish space.

Adorned with beautiful images the menu was probably my favourite aspect illustrating the extensive range of Champagne cocktails, which was extremely difficult to choose. A twist on the classic Tommy Margarita, anything associated with tequila and I’m there, was fresh and delicious!

A great bar for those in search for a hidden treasure, with full windows is ideal for people watching! Fantastic service and not so bank robbing prices, Epernay Champagne Bar is a must!

Next stop to top such a seamless evening was Aglassto, again within the Electric Press complex was surprisingly wonderful in the cozy and relaxed setting complimenting the original features of the Grade II listed Georgian house.

The staffs were amazing and the atmosphere so homely and unpretentious, the perfect location for wine lovers served in some incredible glassware.

A glass of superb red for ‘The Girl in the Red Dress”…
