Sky Lounge Leeds launches to the stars

Following an extensive refurbishment, the new look Sky Lounge in the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, Leeds has been unveiled.

The rooftop venue on the 13th floor has been expanded and now boasts a slick new design. The size of the Sky Lounge, which is the highest rooftop bar in the city, has been significantly increased to enable staff to provide a more efficient and effortless service for guests.

The outdoor terrace has also been greatly improved with heating, lighting and new seating, creating the ideal location to take in the stunning views and invite people to see what Leeds has to offer.

Read a review of the new space published on Loving Leeds blog after an exciting launch evening to showcase the bar and new cocktail and food menu.

Led by interior designers ABDA Creative Design and Build, the inspiration behind the refurbishment came from the combination of Hilton brand elements with the sparkle and glamour of the finest metropolitan hotels and a dash of retro-opulence.

Key features of the bespoke redesign include elegant, stylish seating which has been designed and manufactured in the UK. The opulent feel to the bar has been created by the use of crystal, mirrors, rich timber and luxurious fabrics.

Tim Price, general manager at DoubleTree by Hilton Leeds, said: “The Sky Lounge is now a truly high end venue offering a new level of sophistication with an extensive cocktail selection and mouth-watering menus. “We believe that the new design will have a broad appeal and is the perfect venue for everything from high-powered business meetings right through to casual drinks with friends and private parties for special occasions.”

Located on Granary Wharf, between the Leeds Railway Station and Liverpool Canal, the Sky Lounge towers over cobbled bridges and the original working locks of the waterways and offers panoramic views over Leeds and the North Yorkshire Dales.
