Mojo Sheffield will open on Friday 15 October, with a “huge party” planned in its honour.

The bar takes up residency in the former National Union of Mineworkers building on Holly Street,  with the site having recently undergone a £750k refurbishment.

The Americana-inspired cocktail and music venue is looking to bring the bar brand’s familiar high-octane, rock 'n’ roll vibes to Sheffield.

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. 

Founder-owner Mal Evans will christen the doorway with a bottle of rum for the 6pm opening of his sixth Mojo bar, which follows in the footsteps of sites in Harrogate, Nottingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds.

The launch party will see MOJO operate a ‘conscience bar’ until midnight, where guests can pay an amount they deem appropriate for drinks, with all takings donated to The Parents Association of Children with Tumours and Leukaemia.

A live tracker will be displayed on screens throughout the night so that guests can keep a track of the total amount raised. Previous Mojo launches have seen the group raise over £20k for charity.
