Putting an intimate and innovative drinking experience on the map, Public in Sheffield is a plethora of talented eccentricity inspired by classic Working Men’s club design.

Located beneath Sheffield’s Town Hall lies a speak-easy 1890’s public toilet, now transformed to a pastel-pink and pool-table green cocktail-bar, with a sleek and cool copper finish to capture it’s Georgian routes. Though not very public at all, the vinyl-only policy and the smells of their outstanding small plates, becomes the only signifier of Public’s location, though the entire country has championed this humble project.

Hiding in plain sight, ladies and gentlemen are welcomed to try natural wines and one of O’Hara and Hill’s 25 contemporary cocktails. There is no question to why OFM voted this Victorian public house as the ‘Best Place to Drink in the Country 2018’. This Grade 1 listed building is a prism of all things local, from their interior-designers, Totally Okay, to their seasonally inspired small dishes served on Sheffield’s resident Franky Hague’s ceramic plates, making Public not only Sheffield’s new local, but yours too.
