Bar group, MOJO has announced further expansion plans to launch a new bar in Sheffield.

The Sheffield MOJO will take up residence in the former National Union of Mineworkers building on Holly Street, with the venue having recently undergone a £750k refurbishment.

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.

“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,” said Martin Greenhow, managing director of MOJO.

“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.”

It will be the group’s sixth bar, with venues already in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Nottingham, and Harrogate.

MOJO will officially open in Sheffield in September.
