This former industrial site turned hipster’s paradise boasts many more venues for those craving bespoke cocktails and banging small plates, including the Fat Cat’s selection of real ales, V or V’s delicious range of veggie and vegan snacks, plus the Riverside’s sprawling fairy-lit beer garden - perfect for sinking pints.

With so many options, Kelham Island is the ideal spot to gather a big group of friends for a fun-filled NYE bar crawl.

The Common Room

This sports bar popular with locals and students alike are planning something a little different this year, to keep things safer, and seeing in the New Year at 9pm to close earlier.

While this is a little unconventional, it may give you the chance to join in the big countdown twice in one night. In fact, the Common Room is teaming up with fellow Sheffield bars, Forum and The Old House, giving you entry to three NYE parties for the price of one.

Everything on the menu here is completely vegan, with the Kahlua and oat milk enthused ‘Rasputin’ cocktail and crispy ‘Nirvana’ nachos serving as stand-out selections.

There’s even more bassline filled nights to burst the eardrums and blow the socks off the people of Sheffield this New Year. Tank’s lineup features the likes of bassline and garage pioneers, Jamie Duggan, Mr Virgo and more.

Bassline lovers who are torn between this event and the one at Magna won’t have to choose between them, since Tank are bringing a whole new meaning to the term ‘all-nighter’ and keeping the party going until 7am - yes, you read that right.
