The Kori Bar, which derives from the Japanese word for ‘Ice’, is Issho’s rooftop Japanese bar. Come day, enjoy steaming bowls of ramen and our all day Kori menu before dusk falls and our DJ sessions kick off, whilst the bar transforms into a glamorous cocktail spot.
The cocktail menu is inspired by the Japanese seasons, from the first cherry blossoms of Spring, to the salmon swimming upstream in Winter. You can choose from a range of spirits from the gin infused Spring cocktail Yuzo Bramble, to Kochia, a vodka based cocktail from the Autumn Collection.
The Kanpai Menu, meaning ‘Cheers’ in Japanese, is a specially curated Happy Hour menu where you can enjoy six cocktails for £6 each.
SAKE & WHISKY
Kori Bar also boasts the biggest sake collection in Leeds alongside an impressive selection of Japanese whisky and beer. You can enjoy anything from Mitani Fujio Gingo sake to Nikka Miyagikyo premium single malt whisky and Kirin Ichiban bottled beers.
Kori Bar is open on Mondays offering an exclusive menu including two delicious Ramen dishes as well as a dedicated lunch menu Tuesday-Friday.
The full Issho a la carte menu is also available to be enjoyed in the Kori Bar or al fresco on the spacious, leafy terrace from 12.00-2.30 Tuesday-Saturday and 11-5 on Sundays.
The rooftop terrace is an oasis of plush sofas and lush greenery, with breathtaking views over Leeds city centre. It is the perfect place for cocktails and dining, relaxing in the sun or dancing the night away.
