Used for a Christmas party. Food was good, however room was on the top floor and the toilets were a short hike down three flights of stairs and through another event.

Went to a prosecco and fizz festival. Nice venue to hold this event and the live entertainment was spot on for our taste. Would go again. Like my reviews people. Thank you. More...

Visited historic Yorkshire Bank offices and vaults. Excellent heritage tour. It was a privilege to be able to go 'behind the scenes'.

Great function room, really lovely space and friendly staff. Food was brilliant too. Only small criticism is it got a bit cold later on, but it was better than being too hot.

The reception for my sister-in-law was held here and it is a really lovely place over 2 floors, with modern decor and tons of space to hang out and for the kids to have a good, sweaty run-around! The food was very beautifully presented, came out on time and at a perfect temperature, and was really very tasty indeed. My only complaints would be that there is no parking (to be expected in the city centre) but didn't actually affect us too badly as we were staying in a nearby hotel, and that the waiting staff didn't circulate the canapes well enough cos I missed out!! Dunno how much it cost to hold the reception there but if money were no object, it would be high on my recommendation list ... if you want to get hitched in Leeds, that is! More...

What a beautiful venue! It was an old building with a modern inside. I absolutely loved it. Went there for a work function and I'll definitely visit again.

Nice venue as a conference guest, although the main stage was set up with benches in front of it which were very difficult to sit on for any length of time. Food, drinks and the staff were certainly nice enough! More...

Dear Team Aspire - once again you did an amazing job for us and the Sweet Squared Xmas Party 2017. We love our room.... we loved the food... it was actually fabulous and the beef was divine. The staff were all lovely, friendly and the bar staff were amazing. Seriously they were worked incredibly hard. If we didn’t have half our Scottish team with us, they would have had a more relaxed evening. ���. Samuel says next year, no shots on the bar tab.... but he says that every year ��. Thank you all... you really did a cracking job. My only gripe.... just a little one but... important... a better DJ. This dudes heart isn’t in it... you can definitely find better. Full Marks otherwise ���. Love & Respect!! More...

Top notch wedding venue. Organised perfectly from start to finish by Oliver. All of the details were considered to make it such special day. All guests were complimentary of the standard of food and the service. They even put the Christmas decorations up early to give us the winter theme. Highly recommended. Thank you so much Aspire. Love Rob & Stef Lewis-Brookes x More...

Excellent venue for conferences, meetings and exhibitions. Host venue for Leeds business week. Helpful and friendly staff. Refreshments provided. Plenty of seating areas. Free WiFi. Close to the train station and major bus stop area. Lifts make it wheelchair accessible otherwise narrow and steep stairs to access seminar and meeting rooms. More...

I organised a retirement party for my boss at Aspire on Friday 21 April 2017 and we all had a brilliant time. We had afternoon tea which was just delicious and served on some gorgeous slate stands. The presentation was amazing. The room was perfect for our party size and the decoration suited the style of event. My boss and colleagues had such a lovely time and I want to thank Claudia and Oliver who were extremely helpful throughout the planning process and on hand during the event. I shall definitely be recommending Aspire to others. Thanks again! More...

Attended this venue for a company Christmas Party.

Great venue. As others have said, it has the wow factor outside and in. From a large ground floor room set with tables, dance floor and Bar to a Mezzanine reception area where welcome drinks were served. Good was very good. More...
