Alto is located on the top floor of Cubo – the new modern coworking and private office destination in the refurbished four-story building at 38 Carver Street – and opened for the first time today (Thursday, June 24).
The contemporary and relaxed venue boasts an outdoor rooftop terrace, affording striking views across the city centre and beyond, as well as a VIP area, DJ booth, built-in seating areas and an impressive range of drinks, beers, cocktails and food.
The rooftop terrace in particular will add a new dynamic to Sheffield’s social scene and it is hoped it will be a popular spot throughout the upcoming summer months.
Both Cubo and Alto are the creation of Marc and Rebecca Brough – under their parent company Staton Young. They have previously opened both brands in Nottingham to huge success, and since lockdown measures were eased, Alto Nottingham has been virtually fully booked.
“We are delighted to announce that Alto Sheffield will be opening this summer. We want to provide a fantastic space with a great atmosphere and bring a brand-new social hub to the city centre”
“Our new bar is ready and raring to go. We cannot wait to welcome everyone. It has been a challenging year for restaurants, bars and all the hospitality industry, so it feels great to finally be able to see our vision come to life,” said Rebecca.
Although tenants and members of their Cubo workspace will be able to enjoy the bar in a moment’s notice, Alto will also have a separate public entrance point and lift access to the fourth floor.
It is the second bar to open in recent weeks as part of Heart of the City – the £480m scheme led by Sheffield City Council and their Strategic Development Partner, Queensberry, with the first being The Furnace which opened in Charter Square.
Councillor Terry Fox, Leader of Sheffield City Council, said: “We are delighted to see another exciting venue open up in Sheffield City Centre this week. It has been a difficult year for everyone, so it’s particularly pleasing to see such a great social space open up for our residents and visitors to enjoy and another fantastic new addition to Sheffield’s evolving cityscape.”
Andrew Davison, Project Director at Queensberry, added: “Heart of the City is delivering a renewed vibrancy to the city of Sheffield, creating a sustainable and exciting mix of workspaces, residential, retail, social and cultural venues, alongside world class public realm. We are very excited to see Alto open to the public and build on the success of the managed workspace, which is nearly 50% occupied. The rooftop bar activates the skyline and creates a new socialising destination we can all enjoy.”
