New reasons to check out city-centre food hall Kommune
Established in 2018, Kommune nicely represents the future of social spaces: a place where a community of people choose to meet, eat and drink; a place for friend meet-ups, for cosy date nights, work afternoons or family get-togethers – somewhere everyone is welcome.
Food is at the heart of Kommune and they are working hard to curate an evolving blend of traders from well-known street food kitchens, bringing together a mix of enticing flavours to please everyone’s taste buds. The foundations of the refurbished iconic, listed Co-op building they call home are complemented by eight kitchens, two bar areas, specialist coffee and brunch cafe The Grind, a donut shop by Project D and a renowned independent beer shop in Hop Hideout. Together they create a mouth-watering world of food and drink; new additions such as Edo Sushi and Urban Pizza Co bring the household Sheffield brand names, Hanoi 75 hits with classic regional Vietnamese noodles and bao buns, Mexican favourites are served up by Fat Mex alongside ‘Raita good’ Indian cuisine from The Monkey Jar, mouth-watering Korean fried chicken from Yoki and good old fashioned ‘get it all over your face’ burgers from Fat Hippo.
Kommune bar brings a great selection of beer, covering everything from top worldwide sellers to local independent breweries like Freedom and Salt. Their talented bar team is serve up classics such as the Pornstar Martini, Bramble or Whiskey Sour daily whilst offering great deals such as 2-4-1 on cocktails during weekdays with NUS and 10% off with Defence Service and Blue Light Card.
But that’s not all. Inside you’ll find a range of hireable spaces including Aria Bar and the 100-capacity Kommunity room, which hosts the annual Barclays Eagle Lab conferences, plus monthly yoga and brunch sessions, local film screenings, private parties and more.
In a nutshell, Kommune is one of most vibrant meeting places in town, forming a key part of a wider goal to transform not only this significant building, but also serving as a catalyst to the regeneration of the historic Castlegate area.
