5 Ways To Explore Sheffield’s Cultural Quarter
We in Sheffield are doing pretty well with the independent stuff at the minute. The artisan scene is blossoming with former warehouse space being put to perfect use in the shape of cafes, exhibition space, and obviously a good couple of party venues thrown in for good measure. Where to go? Check this out from Wow247
1. Tamper Coffee
Tamper Coffee at Sellers Wheel on Arundel St arguably serve the best coffee in the city, with a creatively prepared breakfast and lunch menu. But it’s not just a place to catch up in the day time. Tamper run ‘after hours’ on Friday nights 5-8pm, where you can enjoy craft beer, wine, cocktails and a delicious seasonal evening menu. It’s conveniently close to many of the independent galleries in the area.

2. Rutland Arms
If pub grub is more your thing, pop down to The Rutland Arms. Food is served 12-9pm and you can find a filling selection of burgers, chili, pies, platters and a specials board. Most meals are under £7. The Rutland also has a huge choice of real ale and cider. It also has a well stocked Jukebox that you can play the heck outta!

The newest addition to Sheffield’s Cultural Quarter is Peddler Maket which was on Arundel Street. They’ve actually just moved themselves down to Burton Road in Kelham Island as it’s completely taken off! The night market sees an eclectic mix of food outlets, beer stalls, and independent makers get together for a monthly couple of nights of fire-pits in the Kelham Warehouse. Well worth it.
