Thai street food bar to open in Kelham Island
You may have heard by now that Kelham Kitchen & Wine Bar is expanding. The bar which specialises in artisan food and drink is opening up Graffiti, a Thai street food bar, in the space vacated by the Bhaji Shop.
The owners originally planned to just expand the wine bar but then saw the opportunity to launch an entirely different business to bring variety to the area.
Owner Ruth Atkinson told Exposed: “We wanted to bring diversity to Kelham and offer something different. We’d tried such good Thai food in Manchester and Leeds and thought we needed to bring that to Sheffield”.
Graffiti will host a separate menu to Kelham Wine Bar, serving Thai street food including steamed buns, katsu chicken, noodles and dim sum dumplings, but will share the same relaxed vibe. In terms of booze, Grafiti is keeping it local with Abbeydale Brewery supplying the beer in keeping with the theme of the Kelham Island area.
Kelham Kitchen and Wine Bar opened two years ago and has been a huge hit with locals ever since. Ruth is hoping her new venture will add a touch more vibrancy to the Kelham Island area.
Ruth added: “Graffiti will have an urban vibe, with street artist Fem Sorcell busy decorating the interior, including a feature wall, where customers will have the opportunity to capture the artwork whilst posing on a swing!”
Graffiti at 2A-2B, Ball Street opens its doors to the public on 6 July.
