1. The Leeds Library Flickr: 118118485@N05 / Creative Commons You've probably walked passed this hundreds of times and had no idea. The Narnia-style doorway leading to this gorgeous, members-only library is next to Paperchase on Commercial Street. It's nearly 250 years old but most Loiners don't even know it exists. 2. Passion Supper Club in Carlton View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Carlton is home to Yorkshire's famous forced rhubarb and secret supper club hosts Simon and Remmy. They host tables of ten in their cosy home with dishes like rack of lamb and (obvs) rhubarb-based puddings. 3. The Hollies at Meanwood Park Flickr: 98206909@N05 / Creative Commons Just 10 minutes outside of the city is an oasis of babbling streams, dense woods and a picturesque valley trail. Best of all there are two lovely pubs at the end of the trail. 4. Bulgogi Korean Grill Via Facebook: BulgogiLeeds A new nightlife spot is emerging in the city which is all thanks to Leeds Arena opening. It's not quite established yet with there being lots of scaffolding in the way, so you may have missed this little corker. 5. Below Stairs at Temple Newsam House Via Facebook: LeedsMuseumsandGalleries Under the grand Tudor-Jacobean stately home is a network of tunnels and rooms that are worlds apart from the fine decor of the house above them. Kitchen staff had to make their way across a huge 100ft tunnel to deliver food to wait staff back in the day. Crackers. 6. Mrs Atha's View this photo on Instagram instagram.com The coffee froth patterns game is strong at Mrs Atha's. It's a lovely little cafe on two floors with lots of cosy nooks and crannies to sit in and tuck into some lovely home-made cakes. You can find it lurking behind House of Fraser. 7. Holbeck Cemetery Flickr: stripeyanne / Creative Commons If you're into history, you can go on organised tours of the ageing graveyard which is the final resting place for Victorian inventors, mayors, commonwealth war graves, and "guinea graves": headstones shared by poorer residents of the city. 8. Colours May Vary Via Facebook: colours.mayvary If you're a designer or an admirer of design this shop and printing studio is for you. The wares on show are clearly very carefully selected and it's the type of shop you can hang out in for ages. You can find it a few doors up from The Wardrobe bar. 9. Eccup Reservoir View this photo on Instagram instagram.com It's ridiculously beautiful and walking around it on a fresh Sunday morning is lush. 10. The 212 Café & Bar Facebook: the212bar Whether it's named after the New York City area code or the bus to Batley is by the by. It's a nice little bar which will be welcomed by the city dwellers and office workers in the south of the city who usually have to walk for AGES to get to the nearest pub. 11. The Greedy Pig Via Facebook: The-Greedy-Pig Several years ago you would have be warned against eating here but its revamp has been met with rave reviews by foodies in the city. Nice buns. 12. Meat Liqour View this photo on Instagram instagram.com A meat-lovers paradise is hidden down an alley on Commercial Street. If you fancy washing down some 'Bingo Wings' with a Jägermeister milkshake you should probably head there right now. 13. Brewdog View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Though the bar staff are super-serious about their beer, they won't hold it against you if you order a rum and coke. They're opening a second bar very soon in 'Leeds Northern Quarter' (or North Street to you and me). 14. Northern Ballet View this photo on Instagram instagram.com This awesome building for an awesome purpose is shamefully tucked away in the East of the city behind the BBC. It's the stunnning, purpose-built home of Northern Ballet which we're so lucky to host in Leeds. 15. The Terrace at Everyman Cinema Via Facebook: EverymanLeeds Even though it's just above one of the busiest thoroughfares in Leeds, many people have no idea this huge terrace is upstairs in the Everyman cinema. So when everyone is squished together on Millenium Square as soon as the first ray of sun appears, you know where to head. 16. Beer Ritz View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Every beer enthusiast worth their salt makes the pilgrimage to Headingely to buy obscure beers from this legendary shop. 17. The Man Behind the Curtain Via Facebook: themanbehindthecurtainleeds Sometimes you just need your food to look like art. It's probably the closest the city centre has to Michelin stars in the making. You can find it above Flannels but make sure you book as it's not a walk-ins kinda joint. 18. Boss Burgers View this photo on Instagram instagram.com / Via bossburgers.co.uk People in the know travel miles to taste these giant burgers. It's on Brudenell Road and is very reasonable with burgers starting at £5. 19. White Cloth Gallery Flickr: sicliff / Creative Commons This little bar serves pizzas, good coffee and really good wine. Round the back is their small gallery which exhibits local and international artists in a very peaceful setting. 20. Fairuz Lebanese Restaurant Via Facebook: Fairuz-Lebanese-Mediterranean-Restaurant-Leeds Fairuz have been around forever but still remain a bit of a secret. If you like Greek and Turkish food you'll love their tasty tapas. They're behind the Merrion Centre. 21. Maven Bar View this photo on Instagram instagram.com The bar has a prohibition theme going on so there's no sign above the door. You can "Follow the hidden staircase to the doors emblazoned ‘M’ and you’ll enter a room concealed behind darkened windows." OR you can Google them and get their address which is 1-3 Call Lane. 22. Tasty's Karahi Restaurant Via bradfordcurry.blogspot.co.uk This place is a massive secret amongst proper curry fans. It's pretty dodgy-looking from the outside but people who've tried it rave about it. It's not for the feint-hearted so if you prefer a korma to a madras Tasty's is definitely is not for you. 23. And the best hidden treasure in the city: Whitelock's Ale House Flickr: adambruderer / Creative Commons Unless you've just landed in Leeds from the Moon you've probably heard of Whitelock's but chances are you forgot it was there with it being hidden down an alley. It's the oldest pub in the city turning 300 this year (that's older than America!).
