Sport Shack, Hillsborough, are celebrating their first birthday.
The site has gone from strength to strength and is now the flagship bar in the trio of Sport Shacks in Sheffield.
Owners Danny Grayson & James Dobson say:
"Sheffield is a fantastic city and this site is really leading the way in small sports bars. People always ask us the secret to our success, this is due to lots of hours, passion and not getting too big too quick."
"Other sites are still in the pipeline, however Sport Shack's ethos is to fund new ventures through income rather than lending, as we have no external debt whatsoever. Too many new ventures borrow money to get up and running. Sport Shack has not done this and this gives massive flexibility to ride out any tough patches without having to service massive loans."
Sport Shack the brand first opened its doors on Ecclesall Road in September 2018 and was the very first "Micro Sports Bar" concept in the UK. This brand has proved to be extremely popular with sports fans and drinkers and offers total coverage of sports with no distractions such as karaokes, quizzes etc...
The future looks bright for the Sport Shack brand and we will be around for many years to come.
We have removed the Timber Top pub, formerly of Shirecliffe Road in Shirecliffe, as it has closed permanently.
We have removed the Psalter Tavern pub, formerly of 178-180 Psalter Lane in Hunters Bar, as it has closed permanently and been turned into housing.
We have removed Carbrook Hall, formerly of 537 Attercliffe Common. The Grade II listed former pub has been closed for some time and is now being converted into a Starbucks coffee shop.
We have added a new listing for the Gin Bar at Vintedge, located at 444 Abbeydale Road in Nether Edge. This specialist bar serves premium and local gins.
Sport Shack is on the hunt for venue number 4!
Sport Shack was founded in September 2018 with its original site based on Ecclesall Road, Sheffield. In the next 7 months founders Danny Grayson & James Dobson opened 2 further sites in both Hillsborough and Woodseats.
The brand is a roaring success and the founders are now on the hunt for site number 4 and to take this concept beyond Sheffield.
Areas identified for potential "shacks" are Chapeltown, Maltby, Worksop, Chesterfield, Doncaster and more...
The team at Sport Shack have excelled in taking peculiar, abandoned high street units and converting them into thriving sports bars.
Founders Danny & James say: "Each bar will contain at least 6 Ultra 4K HD TVs and serve top quality food & drinks, including the more mainstream products, which are seen less frequently in the micro bar scene. The latest sport from SKY & BT, including horse racing will be shown at all sites and there is a big focus on affordable and quality drinks with a QUIDS night running twice a week, with drinks starting from £1. Can we also take this time to send a big massive thank you to all our customers and regulars that love what we are doing and what we stand for.
We have added a new listing for Sport Shack (Woodseats), located at 706 Chesterfield. Real ale is available, alongside drinks offers and bar food.
We have added a new listing for Sport Shack (Hillsborough), located at 12 Holme Lane. Real ale is available, alongside drinks offers and bar food.
Following on from the huge success of Sport Shack Hillsborough Corner, Sport Shack founders Danny Grayson & James Dobson open the doors to a new sports venue in Woodseats, Sheffield.
Sport Shack Woodseats will feature 6 even bigger 4K Ultra HD TVs and sporting memorabilia throughout. The same fantastic deals will be offered at the new site, with heavily discounted drinks on their special Quids night on Sundays and Thursdays, with drinks starting from only £1.
Sport Shack will be serving mainstream lagers, keg & cask ale, and a gin selection of over 20 flavours. Food will also be served, made fresh on-site using locally-sourced ingredients.
The new shack is located in the former Gregg's building, 706 Chesterfield Road, which is now totally unrecognisable. Danny Grayson & James Dobson say: "The formula for Sport Shack is getting better and better by each venue, we have a fantastic team raring to start and people love that we are sports purists showing pure sports and not diverting down the quiz/live music route. This is a sports lover's dream and unlike any other venue in Woodseats!"
The opening night will be this Thursday the 11th April, at 5pm. This not a VIP opening, as we feel all our customers are very important people.
With the uncertainty of Brexit looming a lot of businesses are holding off investing. However, Sport Shack feel the best way forward is to crack on. This is the third Sport Shack venue in Sheffield in the last 7 months and the founders are looking for suitable venues in other areas to transform, and bring this great concept to the masses.
We have removed the Wharncliffe Arms, formerly of 72 Main Road in Wharncliffe Side, as it has closed.
