The top 10 bars in Sheffield

A city that’s been a focus for urban renewal and has reinvented itself as a modern metropolis with a cosmopolitan core, the local bar scene is a cornerstone of Sheffield’s appeal. Whether you’re looking for a new watering hole near your city centre home or you’re heading into town from an area such as Finningley on the outskirts of Doncaster, here’s our top 10 of the best bars in Sheffield.


Should you be after a drink with a view, Inc is hard to beat. Sitting proudly at the top of the funky Krynkl space, this is Sheffield’s first rooftop bar and the place to go to enjoy an extensive gin selection in a unique setting.

Picture House Social

Found within the old Abbeydale Theatre, this atmospheric bar has a great selection of craft beers and cocktails you can enjoy at the main bar, outside or on the terrace. With ping pong and table football in the games room, the Picture House Social is also popular for its excellent bottomless brunch.

The Washington

An institution on Sheffield’s iconic music scene, this is one of the best bars in the city centre if you love to catch the latest bands. As well as supporting the local grass roots music scene, the Washington also has a 3am license for those late-night parties.

K-Max Karaoke Bar

Continuing on the musical theme, this is the place to go if you fancy yourself as the next Jarvis Cocker or Alex Turner. You can sing your heart out to classics from Sheffield heroes Pulp and Arctic Monkeys, and much more besides, at one of Yorkshire’s best karaoke bars.

The Botanist

If you’re searching for the best cocktail bars in Sheffield, the Botanist is a must-visit. Bespoke drinks, creative concoctions and the chance to go off-piste with your preferences, the food and music is also great at this bar in Leopold Square.

Public Bar

It may not have the most inventive of names, but this great bar is something of a hidden gem. Located under Sheffield Town Hall within the old gents’ toilets, the only whiffs you’ll notice these days are the fragrant aromas of freshly-made cocktails wafting through the air.


Regular craft beer drinkers will know all about BrewDog. The company’s bar in Sheffield has dozens of lines and taps to keep the draft beer flowing, with highlights including their Hazy Jane, Lost Lager and iconic Punk IPA.

The Wick at Both Ends

Ideal for burning the candle at both ends while sipping delicious signature cocktails, this laid-back haunt is popular for date nights. With a prime central location, it’s also great for relaxing with friends while having a chat and listening to some tunes.


Cool and quirky, Division Street’s retro-themed Gatsby is another of the best bars Sheffield has to offer. Also great for cocktails and catching some rays in the beer garden over summer, you can stay late into the night and even have a bite to eat if you want.

Sheffield Tap

Well known to those who frequently use Sheffield train station, this relaxed pub is also famous for its wide selection of ales. The Tap is the best choice if you’re after a pint before or after catching the train.

From the city centre to outer suburbs and spots like Rossington and Maltby in the surrounding countryside, the Sheffield area is a wonderful place to call home. You can do exactly that when you purchase one of our new build properties in this part of Yorkshire.
