House of Fun Leeds

4th July 2021

Leeds-based Rose Thirteen is to open a ramen restaurant and bar, House of Fu in the city. The company, which is behind Leeds’ Belgrave Music Hall, Headrow House and Ox Club, is launching in the city’s The Headrow area.

After beginning life in 2014 as a pop-up at Belgrave Music Hall, House of Fu was awarded the title “Best of the Best” at that year’s British Street Food awards.

The concept’s first permanent site will comprise a 50-cover, ground-floor restaurant, five first-floor karaoke rooms and a second-floor cocktail bar. The restaurant will open with the cocktail bar and karaoke rooms following in the autumn. The outdoor yard will open alongside the restaurant with space for 60 drinkers.

The restaurant will focus on traditional ramen, poké bowls and home-made dumplings, including an extensive plant-based range, all paired with specially selected cocktails, sake and wine. The company, which is led by Ash Kollakowski and Simon Stevens, also owns the Beck & Call, a former Mitchells & Butlers pub, in the city’s Meanwood area.
