New city-centre sports bar opens this week
A new late-night sports bar is set to open in Sheffield city centre this week, promising a winning hat-trick of live sports, good beer and succulent wings.
Extra Time Sports Bar moves into the site previously occupied by Spearmint Rhino Gentlemen’s Club on Brown Street, with opening goal of 11 July, just in time for the Euro 2020 final.
The venue is set to offer customers a comfy, American-styled bar serving a wide range of alcoholic beverages and traditional US comfort food like burgers and chicken wings.
Joe Morris, the Project Manager of Extra Time told Exposed: “I want to be known for having the best chicken wings in town – that’s my little mantra at the moment.”
“We’re also going to have good vegan and vegetarian options, not just putting things on the menu for the sake of it. We want everyone to feel welcome. It’s not going to be high-end dining here – it’s going to be American style bar food, but it’s going to be done really well.”
Extra Time will be decked out with plush booth seating and additional bar seating, as well as multiple screens across the venue streaming all the latest sports coverage.
A variety of sports will be available for punters to enjoy. From American Football and ice hockey to basketball and Super Bowl coverage, customers will be able to catch all their favourites live and until late.
Joe continued: “I want people to be sat at the bar chatting to each other. I feel like we’ve lost that a bit in sports bars. Everyone kind of feels like the bar is for service only, but because we’re doing the offering of table service as well, there’s going to be more scope for people sitting around.
“The sports bar is all seated. We want people to be sat down and to feel comfortable. We can change the screens to have multiple sports showing at one time – there’ll be plenty of choice for sports fans.”
Extra Time Sports Bar opens on 11 July and they are currently recruiting for staff members. For details on how to apply head over to their Facebook page.
