Described as a “fun loving, hip-shaking home of legendary live music and innovative club nights”, The Harley venue in Sheffield is guaranteed to give you a night you won’t forget (or remember, as the case may be!). Having celebrated its 10th birthday in October 2013, The Harley is something of an institution in the city, with lots of amazing musical acts having played there, from The xx and the Arctic Monkeys, to AlunaGeorge and The Vaccines.
As well as continuing to promote weekly shows at The Harley, its live music producers Harley Live have gone on to create and run the nationally-acclaimed music festival Tramlines, whose alumni include WeAreScientists, Alt-J and hundreds more. Hosting takeovers at various Sheffield venues, including working men’s club Queen Social Club and the Gothic Cathedral; each venue creates a new, surprising atmosphere, ensuring a memorable night!
Whilst live music is The Harley’s lifeblood, it also plays host to an eclectic mix of club nights, drawing in hundreds of students. Dubcentral, Thirsty Ear and Club Pony are amongst some of the nights; with the music played ranging from dubstep to reggae and techno, guaranteeing everyone’s music tastes will be satisfied.
During the day, The Harley is home to the award-winning Twisted Burger Company – arguably the best burgers in Sheffield! – with an ever-changing menu that keeps fans coming back for more and more. And as if that wasn’t enough, if you find you literally can’t keep yourself away from The Harley, they offer a 22-room hotel above the bar for you to crash after an amazing night.
If you love live music and happen to be in Sheffield on Saturday 1 February, then I suggest you get yourself down to The Harley, where up-and-coming band Algiers will be performing, promoting their new album You’re The Captain. Trust me; it’s going to be great!
