Leeds is awesome for nights out! If you are looking for cheap drinks then i would recommend Yates on a wednesday night but any other day of the week then the gay strip which starts at Fibre and ends at the New Penny is the way to go! To find the strip it starts at the Mcdonalds and Nandos at the bottom of New Briggate. As for food you have a wide variety of the usual fast food chains as well as some places inside Trinity and Victoria Gate shopping centres such as Issho (Victoria Gate - Japanese). As for shopping there are quite a few shopping centres in the city centre alone and these are The Merrion Centre, St John's, Trinity, Grand Arcade, The Core and of course, Leeds's new acquisition, Victoria Gate which has John Lewis as it's flagship store.
