It will be held at Bar Soda from 3pm onwards.
Friday 28th July – Leeds Digital Drink and Founder
Leeds Digital Drinks teams up with Founder Friday at the Futurelabs. They will have free beer to kick start the conversations before you sit down to hear some stories from entrepreneurs and digital leaders. After, everyone can head to one of Leeds’ bars to continue discussions into the night.
After all the networking and formalities if you need somewhere to let your hair down, there’s plenty of exciting venues popping up across Leeds.
Check out the new Japanese restaurant & bar, Issho – meaning together, which opened in Victoria Gate in June. One of our Directors Ed was lucky enough to attend the grand opening ‘Amazing venue and one of the best openings I have been to in Leeds. The terrace is fantastic for summer drinks and I can’t wait to try the restaurant’. Soon to join Issho is another D&D venture, East 59th, an all-day grill restaurant bringing Leeds a taste of New York with its cocktail menu and outside terrace. It will have amazing views across the city with a glamorous décor and a great social atmosphere.
