Sun, sea, sand and surf – four things not normally associated with Leeds – until now. Yes, late June will see Lower Briggate say aloha to Trader Dan’s Surf Shack; a rum bar set to be the backdrop to your summer in the city.

A long fruity cocktail designed to put you out your misery. Bold and boozy and yet easy enough to have a pint of it.
