Our Guide To The Perfect Christmas Party

We’ve all been to a Christmas party where we can’t wait to leave… making excuses as soon as it’s acceptable to head home!

Whether it’s for the office or a group of friends, a big responsibility is on the shoulders of the organiser of the party. You need to ensure the venue is suitable for everyone, ensuring everyone has a good time during the most sociable time of the year!

Whilst these may seem obvious, here are five things to consider when choosing where to book for a festive get-together


Aperitivo Hour

Your weeknight happy hour just got a bit of Italian flair! Complimentary small plates with Prosecco cocktails, delicious wines, craft beers and good times – it’s Aperitivo Hour!

The Concept – What is Aperitivo?

A staple of life and culture throughout Italy – and nowhere more so than in Milan – the Aperitivo capital of the world!

Bars and restaurants offer a pre-dinner drink (or two) with an accompanying and complimentary finger-food buffet to their patrons. Bruschetta, olives, nuts and other delights are shared in a friendly atmosphere ahead of an evening meal. It’s a time to catch up with friends and family – and perfect for impressing whilst keeping it casual as a first date venue!


Milan Expo 2015 – from the 1st of May to 31st October

I love to support our Italian heritage and share with you the amazing things happening in Italy so you can experience our beautiful country, or just know a little more about it!


It is no secret by now, I have a passion for good food, from our pizzas to salads, and this passion is just as strong in my motherland Milan, so strong that this year, it was chosen as the host to the biggest Universal Exhibition in the world EXPO, which in 2015 sees as protagonist our favourite subject “food” and the human impact on the planet related to it.


Where in Italy?

We all know the feeling of our friends coming home from holiday and boasting about the amazing sights they saw and experiences they had. Usually, when someone visits a country you can guess which city or area they stayed in, Italy is much less predictable. In fact, it will probably leave you pretty confused and overwhelmed – how can a country have that many incredible cities?


Welcome to LIVIN’Italy!

Welcome to LIVIN’Italy, the best and most authentic Italian bar and restaurant in Leeds and the only true “Enoteca” in Yorkshire.

Situated in Granary Wharf, we are the first multi-concept bar in Leeds, offering everything from elaborate cocktails and authentic Italian wines, to the tastiest stone-baked pizzas.
Since we opened in March 2012, we’ve become the go-to venue for both regulars and newcomers to come and enjoy a meal with friends or a drink with family, all in a friendly, welcoming, Italian-style setting.

Here at LIVIN’Italy, we take pride in our wines, and only stock the finest flavours produced from grapes grown in Italy. Here you’ll find the only wine dispenser of its kind in all of the city, in which we place the most premium, hand-picked wines to taste for very reasonable prices.

We have a passion for excellent food, and use only the freshest and most exclusive ingredients to create the classics like lasagne, to dishes with a twist like our Tuscan sausage burger.
We’re not just a bar and restaurant either, you can pop in and take a taste of Italy back home with you. For those days when you’re not in the mood to cook, we create our dishes ‘to go’, providing a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘ready meal’. Our deli counter offers a variety of Italian snacks to take away too, from spiced olives to freshly baked breads. And of course, who can forget our pizza takeaway service, where you can take away the perfect pizza to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon,
