Pizza Express is Coming to The Merrion Centre New Arena Quarter

Pizza Express has chosen the New Arena Quarter for its latest Leeds restaurant, scheduled to open in March 2019.

This recognises the transformation of the Arena Quarter to provide bars and restaurants for all budgets and tastes.

Pizza Express will offer 120 covers with additional outdoor space for 36.  It will be ideally placed to attract customers from First Direct Arena.

Operations Manager for Pizza Express, Ben Hicks, is pleased to continue the association with Leeds, which began in 1996, and looks forward to strengthening the music connection as well as catering for a great mix of office workers and students.

Did you know?

The Merrion Centre covers an area of 1 million square feet?

There are 100 shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as a gym, bowling alley, nightclub and hotel.

The Centre is only 10 minutes’ walk from the train station and 15 minutes from the bus station.  No wonder it had 11.5 million visitors in 2017!
