There’s another new bar on the Kelham Island and Neepsend circuit!
Happy’s Bar, on Rutland Road, describes itself as a neighbourhood bar. It is a modern style of venue in a converted old building that has retained some of the character.
The bar opens from midday Wednesday to Sunday with food available until 9pm each day. On Friday and Saturday nights the bar will stay open until 4am, with a DJ to keep everyone partying, while the rest of the week it closes at midnight. Various events are planned for the future, such as live music, with entertainment envisaged in the outdoor drinking area come the summer.
On the bar there are two handpumps for cask ales, with beer from Abbeydale and Vocation. There is also another Abbeydale beer on keg, along with the usual mainstream brands. A ground floor cellar has been purpose built with cooled piping to the bar. The manager is passionate about serving beer fresh and at the right temperature.
Food is a simple bar snack menu, mainly burgers and hot dogs, at reasonable prices.
