Knaves Kitchen

Knaves Kitchen

History

For over 21 years Oporto has brought the best drinks, music and atmosphere to the loving crowds of Leeds with the best food & drink, resident DJs and weekly live music curated by Dead Young Records and their talented friends.

Located at the edge of the city centre, it’s a short stride from all transport links but a world away from your average small bar & venue. With a 120 capacity venue attached to the infamous Call Lane bar you can plan or attend a huge range of events with us or just let your hair down in a safe and inclusive space for fun lovers from all walks of life.

Whether you’re dancing on the bar, watching an intimate candle lit acoustic show or losing it in a sweaty rock gig, Oporto punches well above its weight, with a newly installed PA, stage & acclaimed vegan junk food pop-up Knaves Kitchen there’s plenty more fun to come.

Calling all SPECTRE agents!

Supervillian, evil genius, archnemesis...these are just some of the libels aimed at Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Expect poetry, stand-up, jazz, ukulele and much more.*
