The uber-modern White Cloth Gallery serves numerous purposes, including art gallery, events space, bar and café. Nevertheless, photography and film are the main focus, providing a platform for new and well-established artists to exhibit and sell their work. It’s worth keeping an eye on the website for news of upcoming talks, screenings and workshops that are often held and prove rather popular.
Food and drink-wise, White Cloth claims to be the only ‘schooner bar’ in Leeds, meaning a large range of beers and cask ales can be sampled in two-thirds of a pint. Meanwhile, the lunchtime menu specialises in tasty, crusty sandwiches and the evening is all about pizzas with unconventional toppings, freshly made cocktails and beer. Sandwiches come in at around a fiver and salads are a very reasonable £4.
