Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oliver Sykes has celebrated the official opening of his vegan venue, Church: Temple of Fun.
The latest in a long line of awesome business ventures, Oli Sykes’ Sheffield venue incorporates a collection of his favourite things: ‘live music, vegan food, tattoos, retro gaming and South American religious iconography’.
The café/bar/live music venue/arcade resides in the historic Rutland Works building on Rutland Road. The creative venue can host 220 people and will be opened day and night, seven days a week.
The vegan café will be catered by Sheffield’s renowned ‘Make No Bones’ kitchen.
‘Make No Bones’ owners, Lauren Hird and Dave Shaw, have been busily recruiting new staff members for the awesome venue and honing an innovative vegan menu. The menu (available 10am-9pm) includes the famed Moving Mountains B12 Burger. As well as mouth-watering seitan ribs, cooked in DropDead black BBQ sauce and a delicious chickpea tuna mayo salad.
Dave Shaw commented: “It was a real honour to be asked to part of the new venue. The last five years have been quite a journey for us and it shows just how big the vegan way of life is becoming in the area.”
The venue also includes an in-house tattooist, retro gaming pods and a live music line-up. While, Church’s bar is also 100 per cent vegan – making this ‘Temple of Fun’ accessible for everyone.
As with all of Oliver Sykes’ quirky business ventures, we’re expecting Church to be hugely popular, so head over to the website to book your table and check out their upcoming events.
