Bring Me The Horizon’s frontman, Oli Sykes gets his hands into another commercial venture as he plans to open a bar/arcade combination in Sheffield. He previously launched his clothing line ‘Drop Dead Clothing’ store, which is also situated in Sheffield currently closed due to major refurbishment.
Currently, a traditional industrial unit will be transformed by well-known architect William John Hale who has previously worked on several Victorian churches. Sykes has decided to name the bar/arcade ‘Church’ with the slogan ‘Temple Of Fun’ (shown in this articles featured image).
There will also be a 100% vegan café to be called ‘Make No Bones’ which will run alongside the retro arcade. The venue will also be used as a live music venue and a tattoo parlour.
Sykes had a few words to say about his exciting new upcoming project and why he decided to open a bar/arcade:
“Our building has incredible heritage and I wanted to develop a barcade concept that truly celebrated and developed that legacy. We wanted something that fitted with William John Hale’s original and stunning design, but provided something to wow 21st century customers. Our strap line is ‘Temple of Fun’ – we provide a whole experience.”
The maximum capacity will be 220. The bar/arcade will be open during the day and night, seven days a week and officially to be open to the public on Friday 6th July 2018 on Rutland Road, Sheffield, S3 8DG.
