This November the ever-popular and highly-acclaimed THOR’S tipi bar will make a welcome return to Sheffield city centre, running from 21 November right through until 31 December 2017.

Last year saw the arrival of THOR’S to Sheffield for the very first time and in just six weeks over 50,000 people visited this uniquely themed attraction that plays on Yorkshire’s Viking heritage.

Commencing Tuesday 21 November in the Peace Gardens, THOR’S will once again open its doors and provide a cosy winter retreat for Christmas shoppers, visitors and families alike.

Two linked canvas tipis will form the bar, festooned with lighting and decked out with wooden tables and benches, cosy furs and an open fire pit. An outdoor heated area will allow customers to soak up the festival atmosphere whilst watching the hustle and bustle around them.

Local beer maker Abbeydale Brewery will be serving lagers and draft ales and THOR’S guest beer will be making its introduction to Sheffield customers. Mulled wine, hot cider and a fully licensed bar will ensure there is something to warm everyone’s cockles. A hot chocolate station allows kids, big and small, to choose a topping for their homemade chocolate treat.

One of Sheffield’s favourite street food vendors, The Gravy Train, will be making its debut, bringing its classic poutine-inspired menu to the event.

Maria Farrugia, co-founder of THOR’s, said: “We are really excited to be returning to Sheffield and are confident that this year will be even more spectacular. So start your festive season in style and join us to enjoy a unique atmosphere under candlelit canvas, with a roaring log fire and the perfect festive atmosphere.”

Mary Lea, Cabinet Member for Culture, Parks and Leisure at Sheffield City Council, said: “Last year’s event brought a real festive buzz to Sheffield, adding to the incredible atmosphere of the city around Christmas time. It’s fantastic to see the popular event return to the Peace Gardens and offer a place where people can come together in celebrating this festive period.

“It’s an attraction which really adds to the vibrant festive programme Sheffield has on offer and we really look forward to welcoming visitors once again.”

In addition to Sheffield, THOR’S tipi bars will be popping up in York, Leeds, Lincoln, Milton Keynes and London over the Christmas season.

For Christmas meals and office gatherings with a difference, THOR’S tipi bar can either be hired exclusively for up to 180 people or a special chill-out area can be set aside for smaller groups (minimum 10 people). Bookings are now open on 01653 610029.

THOR’S tipi bar will be open from 10:30am to 11pm daily from 21 November through to 31 December 2017 (closed Christmas Day). For details visit http://thorstipi.com/ or call 01653 610029.
