Headingley Taps, Leeds

JMDA were tasked to refurbish 3 well known venues for Mitchells & Butlers High Street brand. Local to our Leeds office, Headingley Taps was the first project assigned to our design team.

Headingley Taps, North Leeds, is a heavily student focused, sport orientated pub. JMDA wanted to retain the pub’s accessibility but enhance the playful and contemporary feel of the venue through carefully selected bric-a-brac and other subtle details. The concept was inspired by the industrial revolution, evident in various design elements such as pipework & cogs, Verdigris copper bar front, rust-effect wallpaper and bespoke metal back bar.
