Plans were first revealed for the Mr Wilson’s bar in early 2020, just before the pandemic hit.
Members of the public can also get their first drink for free in the new bar – so long as they sign up for the mailing list here https://mrwilsons.co.uk/
The operators of the venue have previously told how the bar will be divided into two.
The owners said: “At pavement level is Mr Wilson's – a complete rethink of the modern cocktail bar featuring indoor waterfalls, a stunning island bar and a standard of finish never seen before in Sheffield. "
Visitors can then ‘venture underground to Mr Wilson's Speakeasy and go back in time 100 years’.
“You'll find low ceilings, rich mahogany wood finishes, Chesterfield sofas and wing back chairs – Mr Wilson's is an exclusive hideaway where every single customer is a VIP.”
The name was chosen as the building was once part of Samuel Wilson & Son Limited, which had a service station and showroom on West Street that stocked agricultural and industrial vehicles. The place displayed tractors in its front windows.
