The Harley to re-open next week

Much-loved music venue the Harley will re-open its doors next week on Thursday 17 October.

The bar announced its closure back in April, prompting a flood of tributes from regular visitors young and old. It was a venue known throughout the city for its gigs, club nights and as the home of Sheffield food institution the Twisted Burger Company, but had to close up shop last spring due to mounting financial pressures.

A statement said: “It brings us great sadness that we have to shut The Harley with immediate effect. Mounting financial pressures, much like many other music venues across the country, means that the business was no longer viable.

“The Harley, over the years, has been a beacon for new music, bands, and grassroots promoters and a home for the fantastic independent restaurant, Twisted Burger Company. The venue may have come to an end, but the memories will live on.”

The pub’s owners Mitchells & Butlers confirmed today that the venue will be re-open next week, and dropped a few teaser images (above) on Facebook too.  Taking to its new Facebook page, the venue said: “Excited is an understatement! We are looking to fill Fridays and Saturdays with great bands, indie, Brit pop, originals.”
