A Gentleman's Lifestyle Guide to Fashion, Grooming, Health and Travel


Subtly hidden away on the top floor of Victoria Gate lies a chic and stylish venue that screams out style and excitement. Of course, I’m talking about none other than East 59th, the New York inspired rooftop bar and grill.

I was recently invited to try out the Weekend Brunch with DJ by the fantastic management. Having only ever tried a cocktail or two for midweek drinks here before I was eager to get stuck into the mouth watering brunch menu.

First up was Eggs Florentine which comes from the vegetarian option on the menu and consists of toasted English muffins, sautéed spinach and hollandaise sauce. Next up was the Miso baked salmon with ginger soy and green onion. Topped off with free flowing champagne this was the perfect early afternoon date meal, especially as we were sat in the outdoor rooftop area with the sun beaming down on us matched with a spectacular view of the Leeds skyline. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect Sunday afternoon.

If you’re wanting a taste of a stylish New York esc vibe bar & restaurant that will offer you an array of delicious cocktails, spirits, delicious food with a vibrant and elegant atmosphere then this is the place you need to visit. Oh, of course I mustn’t forget the slick vibe created by the brunch DJ who has tempted me into bringing my dancing shoes next time I’m here.

The East 59th Brunch can be seen here and involves the below offer. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Select a brunch item and a dessert then add 15.00 per person for free flowing* fizz or Bloody Marys Saturday 11am-4pm / Sunday 11am-5pm
