Sneak peek inside Sheffield’s newest rooftop bar Alto

Alto, an all-new city centre rooftop bar, opens its doors for the first time this evening (Thursday 24 June).

Located on the top floor of Cubo, a modern co-working and private office space in the refurbished four-story building at 38 carver street, the new roof terrace bar will provide guests with striking views of the city, as well as built-in seating areas, a VIP area and a DJ booth. There will also be an impressive range of drinks, beers, cocktails and food on the menu.

Inside Alto

Both Cubo and Alto are the creation of Marc and Rebecca Brough, under their parent company Staton Young. Both brands have previously opened successful venues in Nottingham and since lockdown measures eased, the Alto Nottingham bar has been virtually fully booked.

Rebecca Brough commented on the opening of the Sheffield venue: “We are delighted to announce that Alto Sheffield will be opening this summer. We want to provide a fantastic space with a great atmosphere and bring a brand-new social hub to the city centre.

“Our new bar is ready and raring to go. We cannot wait to welcome everyone. It has been a challenging year for restaurants, bars and all the hospitality industry, so it feels great to finally be able to see our vision come to life.”

Alto Sheffield is the second bar to open in June as part as Heart of the City project, the £480 million scheme lead by Sheffield City Council. Earlier this month, The Furnace venue opened in Charter Square.

Councillor Terry Fox, Leader of Sheffield City Council, said: “We are delighted to see another exciting venue open up in Sheffield City Centre this week. It has been a difficult year for everyone, so it’s particularly pleasing to see such a great social space open up for our residents and visitors to enjoy and another fantastic new addition to Sheffield’s evolving cityscape.”

Andrew Davison, Project Director at Queensberry, added: “Heart of the City is delivering a renewed vibrancy to the city of Sheffield, creating a sustainable and exciting mix of workspaces, residential, retail, social and cultural venues, alongside world class public realm.
