The Hedonist Project started in 2015 when three Leeds bartenders: Bruce Lerman from Epernay, Dan Crowther from Sandinista and Tom Finnon from Smokestack opened Hogarth's Gin Joint – the first ever gin pop up in Leeds. With a subsequent sponsor the venue morphed into the Rum Shack. The Trio then moved onto this permanent venue on Lower Briggate to continue their “Project”.
As before, their bar will change its theme every three months meaning the decor, music, menu, drink, food and even name will be replaced, they say “with the only constant being the Hedonist Project's thumbprint”. Next in store for the Project, in mid-November 2017, is a whisky bar which will continue through the winter.
