New club set to open in Sheffield city-centre next month

Preparations are underway for the opening of a brand-new city-centre club – tailored specifically for electronic music with a key focus on promoting local talent. 

From its heavyweight audio system to its sleek, underground, tunnel design, ORB has been pioneered by industry-leading music and engineering experts who promise an atmosphere like no other club you’ve ever visited!

A full renovation has taken place in this exclusive vaulted cellar club, which is split into two sections – a glamorous, newly-furnished seating area and a spacious dance floor. Bolstered by a its sound system, an 8m LED bar, poseur seating and a neon chaise longue, the venue aims to bring something completely new to Sheffield’s nightlife.

The fully refurbished underground venue is located just a stone’s throw from West Street with operator Paul Kinsey explaining: “We are really pleased to be able to offer a new, exciting and differentiated club concept which continues Sheffield’s tradition of leading the evolution of music and club culture.”

The team behind Skyline Festival are taking the reins every Saturday night with a new Tech House and House event – Horizon – launching on the 16th September. They’ll be showcasing emerging Steel City talent alongside jaw-dropping production at an affordable ticket-price point.

Co-founder Phil McCue said: “The growth of Skyline has been unbelievable over the past 12 months and when we heard about the plans for ORB, we immediately knew it was the perfect venue for us to launch a new Saturday night party.”

Eddie Richards, who came through the Skyline set-up, has since gone on to become Hull City FC’s new matchday DJ, whilst resident Joe Fenwick has supported Patrick Topping and played at nightclubs across the North of England following his Skyline success.

Phil McCue added: “There’s as much talent in the electronic scene as there’s ever been in Sheffield, but unfortunately less opportunities than ever before due to the difficulties that the night-time economy is facing.

“We believe that ORB can play a key role in changing that and we’ll be inviting anybody to send a mix to us for an opportunity to play.”
