Milo is one of the most famous indie music hangouts in Leeds. Upstairs is a live music venue and club with events several times a week, and downstairs is a small bar that’s open every night.
The focus here is the music and you can expect a good mix of classics and quality contemporary indie: always welcome with 6music listeners like me. The décor here is modern and arty with a very impressive mural along one wall. There are a few booths but you can expect the bar area to get very packed very easily.
There’s a very wide selection of bottled beers, although they’re almost all from the major players: Brooklyn, Goose Island, Sierra Nevada, Anchor, Leeds, Camden and the like. There’s also a good range of spirits and cocktails if that’s your bag.
We found Milo very welcoming and with the music and beer selection it’s obvious why this place has achieved the status it has. We might find ourselves here often, especially when we’re in the mood for a dance!
