The Irish bar and tavern will open on Friday, September 14 and it seems people are already very excited.

Senior operations manager Chris Beasley told VIBE: "It's going to be an Irish bar, akin to Temple Bar in Dublin. We'll have live music on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and we'll show all the sports.

'We've been to a few Irish bars and we love them so much we wanted to bring some of the fun to Sheffield. There's nowhere else that has live Irish music in the city.

Hutton's Bar closed its doors earlier this month with work immediately start transforming it to the new Irish venue.

The bar has been advertising on its Facebook page for Irish-style musicians to perform regularly from September onwards.
