Sheffield Nightlife Guide

Whether you prefer to sip a quiet pint in one of its many pubs or rave until the early hours, Sheffield’s nightlife offers something for pretty much every taste. 

Bars

Ecclesall Road, West Street and Division Street out themselves as Steel City favourites. All boast quirky bars and clubs blaring the best indie tunes. 

Heading into the centre of Sheffield, West Street is always busy with a host of bars like Walkabout and Varsity.

Clubs

Picking our shots at the fantastic range of pubs dotted around Steel City, The Leadmill stands as one of the oldest music venues in the city, and when the bands pack up their tour bus, its revered club nights carry its revellers into the early hours. 

Home of the infamous 'quad-vod', Corporation is a stripped back student stomping ground, resonating a rock, pop and indie sound policy to ignite your scholarly years in the city. Plug offers a similar experience, looping in the students with cheap drinks and an A-grade indie playlist. 

If you're looking for a rave space in the city, head on down to clubbing hot spots like Tank and Foundry. Look out for events from Muzik and The Tuesday Club, who will be drafting in your favourite selectors throughout the academic year.

Gigs

The city's O2 Academy is a hotbed for musical talent, while legendary venues such as Plug and The Leadmill have iconic status - playing hosting to a tonne of top class shows.
