Barfly Sheffield reopens in a new venue this week - just days after being evicted from the National Centre for Popular Music.
Club.Zero will become the home for one of the city’s most successful live music clubs as of Tuesday 23 July. Located on Matilda Street, the new venue is just a few hundred yards away from the NCPM on Paternoster Row
The swift relocation means no gigs are in danger of being cancelled, with all bookings set to go ahead as planned. Barfly say facilities at Club.Zero will be comparable with – and in most instances better than – the NCPM.
Despite breathing new life into the failed visitor attraction, Barfly will not be part of new plans for the NCPM. The steel building is being sold to the Yorkshire Forward development agency and converted into office space for businesses in Sheffield’s Cultural Industries Quarter.
