Planning the perfect Leeds proposal at East 59th
East 59th is a New York-inspired rooftop bar and grill in Leeds city centre. In the daytime, it offers a rich selection of contemporary American cuisine, and in the evening it’s a sleek and sophisticated Manhattan-style bar serving top-quality drinks and cocktails.
Tip: “Whilst enjoying the fabulous rooftop terrace, sharing cocktails are just the right amount of over-the-top for celebrating a proposal.”
With spring just around the corner, it’s a time of new beginnings and unprecedented romantic gestures. So, what better time to pop the question? Having bought the ring, there is still the concern of choosing the ideal location to propose. It needs to be a place that means something to you both; somewhere that represents your affection for one another and will help to create an unforgettable memory. Thankfully, our lovely hometown of Leeds offers some of the most romantic spots in Yorkshire. Make sure to take full advantage of nature’s beauty by going for a picturesque stroll through the forests and heathland of Otley Chevin. Or, you can recreate chivalric tales of courtly love by exploring the charming medieval ruins of Kirkstall Abbey or Knaresborough Castle. Alternatively, the Romanesque-style Grand Theatre can help set the scene for the big moment – especially if you book your own private box. And for the modernists, what could be more picture-perfect than proposing amongst the work of some of the world’s most celebrated artists at Yorkshire Sculpture Park? Finally, there is always yours truly, East 59th. Why not surprise your loved one with a mix of unbelievable food and stunning views? Based on the Victoria Leeds rooftop, the views of the city skyline can be enjoyed both inside East 59th and outside on our exclusive outdoor terrace. Our American-inspired menu includes classics such as fillet steak, grilled local lobster and baby back pork ribs with a couple of influences from elsewhere inspiring dishes such as the miso salmon. If you’re a fan of contemporary American comfort food, East 59th is the one for you.
