Is this the logo of a company that used to inhabit this building on the north side of Kirkgate?

Didn't the Darbar used to be a seedy nightclub called Stallones?

It looks like the symbol for Courage's Brewery, though a bit out of territory. I can't see Leeds folks having the palette for flat west country bitter, though I once enjoyed the odd pint or three of Director's bitter in the Union bar.

Courage got absorbed by Scottish and Newcastle, the Brewery closing in 1999, gone the way of most other regional big breweries.
