A look at the latest restaurants, hotels, pubs and bars to open their doors

Dakota Deluxe Leeds

Dakota Deluxe Leeds, the brainchild of Ken McCulloch, founder of Malmaison, has opened, along with its brasserie-style Grill and Salon Privé, a cocktail bar with a first-floor terrace.

The hotel is touted as a "step up" from its sisters in Glasgow and Edinburgh, with more elegance and larger bedrooms, and the building is the focal point of Evans Property Group's £25m investment into rejuvenating the Bond Court area of Leeds city centre.

The Grill offers steaks cooked simply on hot coals, fresh fish and desserts, and a wide-ranging wine list. Bedrooms are fully air-conditioned with a smart TV and media hub, including full Sky HD package, complimentary high-speed internet and ensuite bathrooms with monsoon showers and bespoke toiletries.
