Pretty Green: Freshen up time at the Green Room!
One of Division Street’s finest watering holes has been shaping up for the summer with a lick of paint, a brand new events space, revamped nights, and the usual unmissable Fringe at Tramlines bash.
The Green Room’s big refurb has notably seen the old Trainspotting-style loos replaced and the exciting addition of a brand new 150-capacity back room, now open for private function hire and suitable to host anything from intimate gigs to birthday parties. Aside from that, as anyone who’s been in there on their oft-busy weekend nights will attest, a bit more dancefloor space is to be hugely welcomed.
“We thought it was time to grow and expand,” Green Room owner Patrick Flynn told Exposed. “Sheffield has been lacking in small, intimate event spaces similar to what The Grapes had upstairs. We wanted to get another space in there which can be used for a range of events and provides more options for us as a venue.”
As well as the established favourites such as Mod For It Saturdays, Sunday Service, Open Mic Monday Club and alternative anthems night Playing Owt, the venue have added a few new events to their roster. The city’s most popular comedy night Last Laugh Comedy Club had arrived last month and will become a regular fixture, while May also saw the back room christened with a number of battle of the bands style nights called Track to Tramlines, where local outfits battled it out to win a spot on the Green Room’s always bustling fringe line-up and a two-day recording slot with Ebb-Tone Studio. Keep ‘em peeled for the announcements soon.
No longer just a spot for the finest and best value brekkie in town, their daytime meal offerings courtesy of culinary team Butties to Banquets have become so popular that serving hours have been extended to8.30am-3pm, open Monday to Saturday.
