Victorian-inspired cocktail bar to open on Ecclesall Road
The Pointing Dog on Ecclesall Road is set to be transformed into a Victorian-themed cocktail bar called The Lost and Found with an opening confirmed for November.
The new bar specialises in hand-crafted cocktails with a menu inspired by a fictional professor whose background story forms the basis of the food and drink on offer. The original Lost and Found bar in Birmingham revolves around around Hettie G. Watson who travelled the world discovering new botanicals and ingredients to create cocktails for fellow intellectuals. The Lost and Found’s website explains: “Every hidden corner reveals a new experience, this Victorian charmer mixes her passion for botanicals with a flair for fashion and textiles.”
Sheffield’s character’s adventure hasn’t yet been revealed, but we know she goes by the name of Victoria B Darcy and will be found at 516 Ecclesall Road – where the long-standing Pointing Dog bar is.
This will be the sixth Lost and Found site so far, with two in Leeds, one in Birmingham, one in Bristol and one in Knutsford. Sheffield’s site is slated for a November opening.
Job ads for the new bar describe The Lost and Found as a “home to mystical mixology and delectable dishes. Our buildings have been transformed into decadent drinking dens and restaurants, with a playful sense of fun, plants, flowers and hidden secrets. Infused spirits are mixed, muddled and beautifully served creating craft cocktails by our creative mixologists.”
Colin Sadler, managing director, said: “We are thrilled to be adding another site to The Lost & Found brand and building on our success as a destination venue, with 20 new staff from the local area to welcome to the team.
“Sheffield is a metropolitan city full of culture and unique places to experience, and we are sure The Lost and Found will be a welcome addition to the dining and drinking scene.”
