We are delighted to be nominated for Best New Bar at the Exposed Awards this year! It’s been a crazy few months for us, there was a lot of hard work prior to opening but it’s been well worth it. To be amongst the likes of Public and The Old Workshop in the Exposed Awards Best New Bar category is one hell of compliment.
We’d be honoured to take home the award but we aren’t a competitive bunch (we’re Sheffielders, we like to support our fellow nominees). Here’s a few of our favourite Exposed Awards nominees making our city great.
Best Live Venue – Picture House Social
Pizza, ping pong, bands and drinks, Picture House Social is your one-stop venue for the perfect night out. Picture House Social hosts a variety of events. When it comes to live music they have their finger on the pulse for booking bands who are on the way to greater things including Goat Girl, Cabbage and The Big Moon.
Made in Sheffield – Henderson’s Relish
Hendos sums up Sheffield perfectly. It’s something we’re proud of, we’re passionate about this condiment and we’ll defend it like our life depends on it. It’s been debated in the House of Commons and Everly Pregnant Brothers’ song, Hendos is an anthem. We treasure the relish and we don’t want it leaving the city.
A meal isn’t complete without it swimming in Hendos.
Best Local Event – Peddler Market
Food and beer in a warehouse, it couldn’t represent the Steel City any better. The monthly night market is unique and the novelty factor hasn’t worn off, it’s popularity continues to grow. Both traders and punters travel across the country for this free event, queues around the block are formed, even in the snow!
Once you’ve made it in you’ll find a variety of cuisines, decent beers from craft breweries, music and art, all in the heart of Kelham Island.
Best Independent Retailer – Beer Central
Beer Central, housed in the Moor Market is more than just an off license. The bottle shop is a haven for beer lovers as they stock bottles and cans from Sheffield’s finest breweries as well as those from around the UK and worldwide.
The decision to purchase is near impossible with such a great selection but help is on hand from the highly knowledgable staff. Beats a trip to the supermarket, right?
Best New Bar – Public
Who’d think a former public toilet would make a cool cocktail bar? The same minds behind Tramlines, Picture House Social and Daisy’s Bar, that’s who! Public is small, really small but it’s worth queuing for. Their drinks menu is inspiring (it’s a book!) and the actual drinks are not your standard cocktail.
Going to Public is the best toilet experience you’ll ever have, the vibe is chilled and you can sit comfortably knowing there’s a line of people outside wanting your seat!
The Exposed Awards take place at 92 Burton Road on 17th May, more details available here.
