As if Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes didn’t have enough business ventures to keep him busy, he’s just gone and started another… it’s called Church, and it’s a new bar and arcade opening in Sheffield.
Church is situated in Osborn Works on Rutland Road — that’s a listed building, architecture fans — and opens to the public on Friday, July 6.
The 220-capacity venue will incorporate “live music, vegan food, tattoos, retro gaming and South American religious iconography”. There’ll be a vegan café with food provided by Sheffield eatery Make No Bones, and a 100 per cent vegan-friendly bar.
Sounds rad, right? Well Oli came up with the idea for the place after visiting somewhere similar in Brazil.
“Our building has incredible heritage and I wanted to develop a ‘barcade’ concept that truly celebrated and developed that legacy,” he explained. “We wanted something that fitted with William John Hale’s original and stunning design [of the building] but provided something to wow 21st century customers. Our strap line is ‘Temple of Fun’ — we provide a whole experience.”
