Whatever your vice is, this Leeds cocktail bar has a virtue for everyone to sup. The menu at Vice & Virtue covers every spirit and almost every style of cocktail to boot.
Vice & Virtue is a restaurant-cocktail bar combination with cocktails served in Vice on one floor and the second floor dedicated to restaurant Virtue.
The business started with Vice, a gentlemen’s club-style cocktail bar, before Virtue was added shortly after.
Expect decadent wall coverings, plush furnishings and service carried out in a style that is rarely seen these days, but most welcome.
The drinks menus are broken into eight parts, consisting of: Agave Cocktails, Champagne Cocktails, Gin Cocktails, House Classics, Rum Cocktails, Signature Classics, Vodka Cocktails and Whiskey Cocktails.
While we’d love to delve into every aspect of the menus, it would be rude of us to spoil the surprise.
Whiskey cocktails are priced between £9 and £15, the latter will get you an Ice & Fire made from Wild Turkey Rare Breed, lemon, Kings Ginger and Prosecco.
Rum cocktails are priced between £8 and £28, the former will get you a Cuban Star, made with black grape and anise-infused Appleton Signature Black, grape press and lime.
Gin cocktails are priced between £8.50 and £13. Cocktails include the Wasabi Dream, the Turkish Delight, the Thai Collins and the Definitely Not A Martini, which is made using Gin Mare, olives and tonic soda.
Britalia (£10) is made using Bulldog Gin, Averna, Aperol and fig.
If you’re hungry, then a trip to the restaurant is recommended. The spring tasting menu costs £65 per head with a classics drinks pairing, up to £325 for a ‘rare and exclusive’ pairing.
Dishes include Whitby crab with squid ink emulsion; burnt cod with salsify and truffle purée; and spring hogget with mustard.
