Following on from the successful launch of Sport Shack on Ecclesall Road earlier this year, owners Danny Grayson and James Dobson have submitted plans to open two new Sport Shack venues in Woodseats and Hillsborough. The current bar was Sheffield’s first micro pub dedicated to sports and offers Abbeydale Moonshine for cask drinkers, alongside a range of lagers and spirits.
A planning application has already been submitted to Sheffield City Council for the conversion of 12 Holme Lane, Hillsborough, into a micro pub. According to the a recent press release, the location has been chosen due to the close proximity of the Sheffield Wednesday ground and is intended to provide an excellent pre- and post-match drinking environment. Meanwhile, the pair hope to open the Woodseats venue in a former charity shop.
The two businessmen said: “All too often other areas of Sheffield are neglected when it comes to new bars, it’s not all about Ecclesall Road and Kelham Island. We would just like to say thank you to all the customers for the fantastic reception to Sport Shack it has been truly amazing. We look forward to bringing the same atmosphere and fantastic deals to the new locations. We are an independent business looking to create great venues, providing new jobs for each area and we thank you for all your support.”
Both bars are looking to open in early 2019.
