Twenty eight years ago Hanrahans was one of Sheffield's hottest night spots for the city's young professionals.

Situated opposite the Royal Hallamshire Hospital on Glossop Road, it was opened in the 1980's as an American-style bar and diner and underwent a series of changes.

In 1999 it had a half-million-pound facelift designed to freshen up the image and expand the bar’s appeal.

But the refurbishment didn’t pay off and two years later another expensive refit was under way.

The place changed hands and for three years became known as Casa but the name never stuck and in 2004 it reverted to Hanrahans – with yet another major refit.

However in 2008 it closed its doors to become Loch Fyne restaurant.

The seafood chain has now ceased trading in Sheffield leaving the attractive building on Glossop Road empty.
