UK; Leeds, Visiting Slate NQ

Slate NQ Review
When it comes to bars Leeds manages to wow us all, new niches run along side chain franchises giving Leeds goers a vast array of choice when choosing their destination for the evening. This week it’s all about the new boys in town, introducing Slate NQ.
