Dyson Place: Bringing something unique to Sharrow Vale Road
Bringing together an exciting combination of independents and modern living space in an inviting courtyard setting, the Dyson Place development is fast-becoming a popular hangout spot for shoppers and foodies in the Steel City.
Take a turn off Sharrow Vale Road and head up the short walkway between The Mediterranean Restaurant and JH Mann to locate the spot, tucked away nicely from the nearby hustle and bustle with plenty of open socially distanced space available.
Dyson Place was a labour of love for our team over the last decade, site manager Dan Flowers told us. “We see it as an opportunity to bring something entirely different to the Sharrow Vale and Ecclesall shopping and hospitality area, which is built up along main roads. We love the feeling that you could be anywhere in the world when you’re in the courtyard when it takes you away from the noise of the streets. We had big plans for pop-up beaches and cinemas before lockdown, but we are still pressing on with some great pop-up partnerships – like one coming up with famous Sheffield artist Joe Scarborough. The development has been great for allowing our independent businesses to reopen during and after lockdown while providing a safe space for visitors.”
A growing number of businesses have taken up residence since its summer opening. Vietnamese kitchen Năm Sông and innovative small plates specialists Tonco have been a popular draw for merrymakers, with the latter venue situating their evening diners in the historic Mission Hall, an atmospheric red-brick building going back to 1901 where it served as a parish hall for the Sharrow area.
In the Artisan Yard you’ll also find Olive and Joy serving up vegan treats and coffee (the froconuts are a must-try), handmade children’s clothing label Bear & Babe, quirky interior and lighting shop Inco, eco-friendly hair salon The Nook, integrative women’s health clinic Life + Lemons, and popular barbers Rapscallions are on-hand for any male grooming needs.
Subject to government safety guidelines, there’ll be a number of autumn and winter markets promoting local producers ands brands. Head to the website www.dysonplace.co.uk for the latest details and procedures.
