New bar opening gives Sheffield back its MOJO after lockdown

Award-winning bar group, MOJO has today announced their further expansion with plans to open a new bar in Sheffield. The Americana inspired cocktail bar will bring their high-octane energy to the city in September. Known for its great cocktails, food and rock n’ roll inspired decor and music, and hospitable team, MOJO will officially open next month.

Taking up residence in the former National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) building on Holly Street, the eclectic new venue has recently undergone a £750k refurbishment, and even the brand’s iconic trademark skull has been given a fitting refresh look ahead of its arrival at its new home.

Set over two floors, the new 4400 sq ft premises provides covers for 350 with additional seating on the ground floor and first floor terrace, and is the sixth bar in the MOJO group with successful venues in Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Harrogate and Nottingham. The latest addition to the MOJO portfolio offers entertainment in the form of shuffleboard, beer pong as well as large screens for sports fans to watch those all-important matches, and a private event space for more intimate gatherings. Guests at the new Sheffield venue will experience a new menu with a firm focus on American-style pizzas.

Martin Greenhow, MOJO MD shared his excitement ahead of Sheffield’s imminent new arrival: “Rock n’ roll is in our soul, it’s part of our DNA. Sheffield is an obvious MOJO location – with its fabulous music heritage – these streets are ours! The city has a great culture around its diverse music scene and that’s something we’re very much looking forward to being a part of. Life is finally returning to normal, and we’re excited to help bring cities back to life and see people enjoying the electric atmosphere that we’re known for. To be opening our sixth bar as we’re just coming out of a nationwide lockdown is a massive achievement, the hospitality industry has definitely been one of the hardest hit industries during the pandemic and we’re just as excited as our guests to be back dancing on tables and bars – especially in this vibrant city.”
