Vegan focus at '˜barcade'
A pioneering Sheffield vegan restaurant has moved to a new bar set up by a city rock star.
Popular vegan eatery Make No Bones, one of the first to open in what is now Sheffield’s vegan quarter, is part of the new venture in Kelham Island after moving from Chesterfield Road.
Sheffield rock star, Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon, is behind the entertainment venue called The Church, which is a bar with arcade games.
It features ‘live music, tattoos, vegan food, retro games and South American religious iconography’.
There will also be a vegan bar at the venue at Rutland Works on Osborne Way.
Best of both worlds
Prosecco and gin have taken on legendary status in the last few years.
This weekend a Sheffield festival dedicated to both drinks is at the Cutlers Hall.
Organisers promise over 40 carefully selected gins and a large selection of sparkling wines and prosecco varieties to choose from, as well as live music. For tickets for the event on Saturday July 14, visit www.proseccoandginfestival.co.uk.
