About

Craft Asylum is a member of the SALT Family, part of the Ossett Brewery group. Ossett Brewery transformed a Grade-II listed Edwardian tramshed into a 20-hectolitre complex with a brewery tap and made the ultimate interactive visitor experience. Our mothership, Salt Beer Factory is located in the UNESCO village of Saltaire, Bradford.

But, you don’t have to travel to Saltaire to find SALT’s latest brews, the twin bars on opposite sides of Leeds city centre, Craft Asylum #1 and #2 are both craft-focused bars, showcasing the core range and limited edition modern hop-forward beers from SALT and leading guest breweries, artisan gin, premium hot drinks, wine and an array of cocktails.

The Craft Asylums are truly a relaxing destination to escape from the everyday madness of city life. Both venues hold the same values but vary in decor and offering. Craft Asylum #1 has the addition of Enomatic wine machines, simply meaning you can enjoy our selection of premium wine by the glass along with a monthly showcase of acoustic sessions. Craft Asylum #2 gets that party feeling going on a Friday and Saturday night with a Live DJ from 8pm not forgetting the delicious sourdough pizzas we have on offer throughout the week.
