Me and some friends are going to Leeds in a few weeks time for my 30th Birthday. We will be staying at the Hilton Doubletree and the plan is to go for a meal then visit a some Real Ale pubs and bars before ending the night at the Cockpit.
I am just looking for some advise on restaurants and bars. The restaurant shouldn't be too expensive (up to ~£20 per person) and cater for a wide range of tastes. As for bars, we are fans of Rock/ Metal music and so would want to avoid the more mainstream bars and clubs. I was thinking of maybe including The Hop Bar which is right outside the hotel, The Nation of Shopkeepers and maybe Mr. Foley's also. I am completely open to suggestions and I am happy to scrap these if you are able to suggest areas with more suitable bars and pubs.
We wouldn't want to walk too far and so ideally the bars would be in close proximity to each other. Any advise you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
