A Tipi Tipple At Thor’s
Christmas revellers will be encouraged to get on the ‘Gravy Train’ this Christmas with the return of Thor’s Tipi Bar to the city centre. New for this year is the arrival of the Gravy Train, which will be serving poutine; a Canadian blend of chips, meaty gravy and cheese curd.
The Viking-themed attraction will have two tipi huts, with toasty log fires to huddle around, providing a cosy winter retreat for those grabbing their last bits of shopping.
Maria Farrugia, co-founder of Thor’s, told us: “It’s about a Christmas experience, it’s about putting people in the Christmas mood. We are not so much a bar; it is somewhere for people to come together.” “The Peace Garden’s is probably the best site we have in the UK because it looks really pretty, and having announced our return through social media we have already seen lots of people getting excited about us coming back.”
Thor’s may still be quite new to Sheffield, but Maria stressed that the two have always been close. “A lot of the team went to university in Sheffield, so we know it is a vibrant city,” she said. “We felt the Christmas offering should have had something a bit bigger and more special than it’s last offering, so that’s why we brought Thor’s to Sheffield.”
A fully-licensed bar will also be providing some of Sheffield’s best beer from Abbeydale Brewery, who’ve been mastering their brewing arts locally since 1996.
Kids are in for a treat too as they choose between Aero, Kitkat or Flake from Thor’s very own hot chocolate station, whilst adults can add a sneaky shot of Baileys.
Thor’s will be serving food and drink seven days a week 10.30am to 11pm from 22 November until 31 December, except on Christmas Day.
