Get Ready to Enter The Pit
Arc Inspirations’ newest bar, The Pit, opens for business Saturday 31st August, located amongst the vibrant nightlife on Merrion Street in the Northern Quarter of Leeds. The Pit is stripped back, urban and underground, serving traditional slow cooked American style food such as burgers, ribs, wings and lobster alongside an extensive cocktail menu created by Declan Mcgurk, Bar Manager of the American Bar at London’s Savoy, and formerly Arc Inspirations’ Bar Development Manager. The Pit will also sell its very own beer, brewed locally for a true taste of Yorkshire. The American-style Pilsner, ‘Pit Canary’, was inspired by the old mining days when a canary was carried into the pit to check it was safe to enter.
The architecturally innovative bar comprises of a sheared concrete curved bar, original brick and exposed beams, and oak and steel furniture handcrafted by local blacksmiths. The Den is home to 2 custom-made ping pong tables and the White Room, is a little more refined for private parties, events and cocktail master classes.
Arc Inspirations LLP recently announced their £1m investment in the cultural quarter of York, with their 9th bar, the Banyan Bar & Kitchen on Little Stonegate, which opened to customers in July 2013. Two more bars are scheduled to open in Yorkshire in 2014.
