As the temperature drops and the leaves begin to fall, award-winning Green Room is preparing to embrace the autumnal season with its forthcoming Winter Garden. Debuting on Wednesday 20th September, the roof terrace will be transformed into a cosy winter haven which is fully covered, complete with fire pits, heat lamps covering the roof top, creating the perfect hideaway for those upcoming dark nights.
As we move away from Halloween and into November, the Winter Garden will receive a striking festive makeover as we edge toward Christmas. Green Room’s commitment to working with some of the best local independent brands also continues with a string of exciting collaborations.
A kitchen takeover by Braizin Squad will see the infamous trio of chefs bring their unique twist on all things smoked to the winter and Christmas menus. As well as a tempting selection of flavour-packed dishes available every day, Braizin Squad, who we’re voted one of the top 20 roasts in the UK last year, will be serving up Green Room’s first-ever Sunday roast and festive menus.
The Sunday roast menu will include Grilled Beef Rump Cap with beef jus, Porchetta with apple cider jus and a Butternut Squash Wellington with mushroom and pumpkin gravy.
Braizin Squad’s Jamie Marrion said:
‘’When the Green Room team asked us to takeover over the kitchen, helping them move in a new direction, it was a no brainer for us. We can’t wait to unveil the new menus and show off what we’re all about. The three of us are very passionate when it comes to what separates a good roast from a great one, and we’re confident you won’t find a roast like ours anywhere in Leeds!’’
‘’Green Room is the perfect fit for us. We’re honoured to be handed the reigns to create their first full Christmas menu, we think it’s going to blow everyone away - keep an eye out for the menu reveal coming very soon.’’
Every Monday and on quiz night Tuesdays, Homeboy’s Pizza will be taking over the terrace, serving up slices of their celebrated New York/Neapolitan hybrid to the post-work crowd.
Green Room have also spiced up their drinks menu, making their busy bar an essential destination for cocktail aficionados or anyone looking to catch up afterwork over a bottle of wine. The classic cocktail selection is complemented with bespoke creations ranging from the sweet and zesty Honey Pineapple Margarita, Bakewell Mi Tai and the boozy Dead Red Zombie which is perfect for Halloween.
A selection of warming winter specials ideal for those chilly nights. As well as Mulled Wine and Mulled Cider, guests opting for Boozy Hot Chocolate can take their pick from Amaretto, spiced rum, Bailey's, whiskey or cherry liqueur.
The team are also be collaborating with the likes of Kirkstall Brewery, Wolfe Bros Gin, Northern Monk and wine experts Mathew Clarke, ensuring Green Room represents the best local independent drink brands.
Friday and Saturday nights will still bring the party with a selection of local musical talent taking over the downstairs bar to entertain you through the winter months.
Speaking ahead of the Winter Garden opening, Will Habergham said:
‘’After another phenomenal year that’s seen our brand grow and evolve in a really positive way, we’re really proud to present our Winter Garden in 2023. As well as some great collabs with some of our favourite brands, it’s also going to be the first time we’ve done a full Christmas menu and Braizin Squad has nailed it.’’
‘’We’re looking forward to an amazing autumn and winter season and can’t wait to get feedback from our guests.’’
