Going out is the new staying in

Have your say

REVELLERS in Sheffield scrub up for a night out, according to a survey.

The study, by drinks firm Smirnoff, reveals Sheffielders make a real effort with how they look on a night out.

About 30 per cent go out dressed smartly – 7 per cent above the national average and 20 per cent more than clubbers in Leeds.

The survey also revealed about 41 per cent of people from Sheffield spend up to £50 on a night out, while 2 per cent would spend more than £100.

The survey also found music is a key when choosing where to go – with 75 per cent of Sheffield respondents saying they use music as their main selection criteria.

And, as the home of Pulp, Arctic Monkeys and Reverend & The Makers, Sheffielders lead the country in a love of indie/alternative music, with more than 25 per cent confirming this is their preferred choice of music, more than any other city in the UK.
