Relaunch plan for nightspot

Have your say

A FORMER gay bar in Sheffield city centre is reopening - but original proposals to hold regular strip shows at the new venue will not go ahead.

Sheffield Council’s licensing board has approved a bid to relaunch the old Fuel bar, Eyre Street, with permission to open until the early hours of the morning and hold entertainment including drag artists.

A council spokeswoman said: “The licence was granted in slightly different terms as to what was applied for. This includes slightly-reduced hours and the removal of striptease from the licence. “These were agreed with the applicant.”

Opening hours will be until 6.30am on Friday and Saturday nights, and 4.30am Sundays to Thursdays, instead of 6.30am seven days a week originally asked for.
