“Express Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

Ran in here to escape the rain and grab a quick lunch. Waitress was helpful and we dumped ourselves in a comfy booth. Great range of drinks and a decent bar-type menu. I had the Dirty Dog (see pic) and my daughter ordered the pulled pork special. Both were very tasty, although not for the calorie counters! Looks like it could be a lively and fun place at night, although the trek to the gents toilet is a marathon!

“Stag night with the lads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

The lads decided they wanted to go and spend some time at this bar during the first night of the Stag. It was local and the locals recommended this venue too. It was very lively and was pretty full abd buzzing! Small finger food was served at the venue which was free and the bar staff were great :) While in leeds you have to drop in for a few drinks, the place is buzzing if yiu like it lively lol

“Manager with no manners ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

I was waiting 15 minutes at the bar early on in the evening, therefore at a quiet period. The manager (I assume he was a manager as he was the only one behind the bar wearing a suit) then served a lady who had been waiting at the bar only 30 seconds. When myself and the lady being served questioned him on this he had the audacity to tell me I should be more patient. Safe to say as long as this person is employed here I will be warning everyone against visiting.

“Cocktail Masterclass - Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We went to revolution last night for a cocktail masterclass and can honestly say it made for the best night out I have had in years !!! Having done a masterclass elsewhere I can honestly say the Revolution experience was 100% better.

Where do I start...we arrived and had a drink before we started before sitting down at a bar and introduced to Josh our waiter for the next 90 minutes. Josh was immediately welcoming extremely friendly and talked us through what we would be doing. We started with vodka shots and Strawberry daiquiris made by Josh. The shot is not what you expect but was a great way to start the night !!

We then had a couple of fun games making cocktails....won't spoil the fun for those wanting to go. Throughout Josh explained how the cocktails were made and entertained us with his anecdotes. Following this we could each make cocktails of our choice and we chose to make extra. Once again Josh gave us his excellent advice on what we should and should n't make depending on our tastes.

The masterclass lasted the full ninety minutes and I honestly cannot remember how many cocktails we made between us but it was great to try so many.

Afterwards we were then shown to a reserved booth and enjoyed the rest of the evening purchasing cocktails from the bar.

Our only downside was that we had booked a table to eat elsewhere at 9pm so had to leave !!!

At £25 per person for 90 minutes this was good value for money and a great start to the night. All of us left saying we would recommend to friends and family.

Well done Revolution and Josh for making the night so enjoyable and memorable.
