Old Bar is 80

Old Bar is 80

Old Bar turns 80 this year after opening its doors to students for the first all the way back in 1939 - and it's been a staple of student life at Leeds ever since, hosting more than its fair share of celebratory graduation drinks, first meals away from home and historic sporting events.

LUU's humble boozer has been through a lot - in 2015 students used the hashtag #SaveOldBar after plans were unveiled to change the pub as part of the building upgrade, along the rest of the building. The campaign was successful, and Old Bar was allowed to keep the classic pub look it's become renowned for.

Take a look at how Old Bar has changed its look throughout the years:
