Alongside the main restaurant, the Issho Bar is a destination in itself. Complete with a stunning terrace and wrap around bar it’s become a go-to destination in Leeds, offering a range of cocktails and Japanese Whiskies. Enjoy a relaxed lunch during the day in the bar,  make the most of our Kanpai Happy Hour Menu for an after work drink or sip cocktails until after dark.


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 Cocktail Club menu where you can enjoy six cocktails for £6 each, Monday – Thursday, 5pm – 7pm.


Issho Bar also boasts the biggest sake collection in Leeds (tough title to contend with we know), alongside an impressive selection of Japanese whiskeys and beers. Enjoy everything from Mitani Fujio Gingo sake to Nikka Miyagikyo premium single malt whisky and Kirin Ichiban bottled beers.


Monday – Friday, 12pm – 3pm, Issho Restaurant offers an a la carte lunch menu as well as a range of delicious bar snacks.


The full Issho a la carte menu is also available to be enjoyed in Issho’s Restaraunt from Monday – Saturday.


The rooftop terrace is an oasis of plush sofas and lush greenery, with breathtaking views over Leeds city centre. The perfect place for cocktails and dining, relaxing in the sun or dancing the night away.
