How to Hit the Town in Sheffield

The ‘Steel City’ continues to be one of the most exciting places to live in the UK. A large part of that is due to it being totally stacked full of cultural delights for us to savour. There’s the buzzing art scene, which has numerous galleries displaying some of the most famous Yorkshire artists around. There’s the opportunity to watch amazing plays at one of the largest regional theatre complexes outside of the capital, over at the Crucible Theatre. Then there’s the interesting museums to spend time in, such as the Weston Park Museum, where you can dive into the rich history of Sheffield.

It doesn’t end there though, as the city is also brimming with nightlife hotspots that truly come alive after dark. So, if you’re wondering how best to hit the town for a night out in Sheffield, then fortunately you’re in the right place, as we’re now going to divulge a few of our favourite ways to revel in this glorious city’s night time entertainment. 

Get The Drinks In 

Sheffield is overflowing with quality places to sink a few drinks as the evening commences. In fact, according to data recorded by the British Beer & Pub Association, there are a total of 417 pubs in the Sheffield local authority area. That’s a heck of a lot of options for a pint or two. A couple of the finest are The Fat Cat, which is an award-winning pub located in the heart of Kelham Island, and The Beer Engine, which offers a laidback vibe on London Road, along with an astonishing eighteen cask and keg lines to get stuck into. 

If you’re more of a bar hopper than a pub dweller though, there’s also a fair few of them dotted about. Our picks are MOJO Sheffield, which is an off the wall Rock N’ Roll cocktail bar that also specialises in rum, located on Holly Street, and the Public, which is a much more intimate vibe that’s almost hidden below Surrey Street and mixes some of the most tantalising cocktails available anywhere. 

Have A Little Dance

What’s a night out without a little boogie? Not a lot of fun, that’s for sure. Luckily, Sheffield is a city that is chock full of nightclubs where you can dance the night away. First up is the iconic The Leadmill, suitably located on Leadmill Street, which has been entertaining many patrons with its live music and club nights ever since it first opened its doors back in 1980, and has seen some of the most famous bands from the past four decades take to its stage.   

A couple of the other great nightclub choices are The Viper Rooms, over on Carver Street, that plays an eclectic mix of music, along with having an underground basement that has a booming sound system, or Popworld Sheffield, which is handily also situated on Carver Street, and is the absolute place to be if you want pure cheesy music, massive sing-along anthems, all served with some seriously cheap drink prices.
