The Sheffield-based sports bar chain are hoping to have their second site in Woodseats open by the end of March
Sport Shack, Ecclesall Road’s first micro sport bar, announced two new sites in Woodseats and Hillsborough back in November and they have now revealed that they hope to haver the Woodseats site up and running by the end of March.
Sport Shack co-owner James Dobson told VIBE: “Following an excellent Christmas and New Year, Sport Shack are gearing up to roll out two new sites, one of which is in Woodseats.

“The site will be located at 706 Chesterfield Road formerly Greggs and the venue is looking to open before the end of March.
“For those of you that have visited the Ecclesall Road branch you will see some familiar faces behind the bar in the new venue.”
Plans have been submitted to Sheffield city council for new venues in both in Hillsborough and Woodseats, with owners Daniel Gryson and James Dobson hoping to convert a wedding shop on Holme Lane, Hillsborough, as well as the Greggs on Chesterfield Road.

Both locations have been chosen to give a boost to their respective areas. Speaking in November, Sport Shack co-owners Daniel Grayson said: “All too often other areas of Sheffield are neglected when it comes to new bars, it’s not all about Ecclesall Road and Kelham Island.
“We would just like to say thank you to all the customers for the fantastic reception to Sport Shack it has been truly amazing. We look forward to bringing the same atmosphere and fantastic deals to the new locations.”

The drinks offers will be the same as on Ecclesall Road, with locally sourced food and local cask ales, as well as mainstream keg lagers and beers and a full range of gins.
Both bars are looking to open early next year. Keep checking their Facebook page for updates.
