Corporation reviews

By Emma K.

Fridays and Mondays are the best nights to go. If you love rock/alternative music this is the best place in Sheffield. The bouncers look out for you and the people tend to be friendly. If you don't like crazy moshing don't dance need the DJ as that is where the mosh pits end up. The bar staff are nice and friendly and if you want a change of music you can always go up stairs.

Great music in great rooms - what's not to love? Friendly crowds, drinks are reasonably priced and good sound - my favourite place to see bands in Sheffield.

By Catherine C.

I love it here - the best club in Sheffield. Great music and sound system in 3 different rooms. It's also a live music venue that has a big room and small room. Drinks are cheap and there's a huge outdoor area if you're a smoker. Really friendly place.

This venue does not need an intro sentence, it just needs one word: rock.

The Venue
The venue is grimy. It’s not in a bad state or dirty, in fact the walls are adorned with some interesting and dark future-goth style murals, it's just grim. It’s cavernous, with three floors and three rooms, and is easily located at the edge of the city centre. The huge Corporation logo should be enough to guide you.

The People
Whether you're watching a Finnish death metal group or even attending one of the rarer dance events Corporation always has a suitably impressive feel and leaves you with a sense of a big night out. Punters include the classic rock profiles with everyone from moody indie boys to panda like goth girls as well as your old skool long-haired Def Leppard lovers.

The Music
The in-house events that rotate each week are fairly static. All flavours of guitar influenced mayhem can be found here. From EPM, metal, goth-rock, 80s cheese to seriously uncompromising death metal, there is surely something for everyone. Ravers are occasionally blessed with a one-off Bank Holiday dance event where drum and bass, jungle, house, techno and reggae can be heard.

The Drink
Drinks are not too expensive. Newcastle Ale and cider are big favourites with the standard crowd, although spirits are guzzled too. The floor tends to get a bit saturated towards the end of the night after a few too many energetic air guitar moves. To combat this Corporation started using two pint plastic cups which enable drinkers to swing their arms around without giving the nearest person a soaking.

The Last Word
Somewhat of an institution in Sheffield and very significant for any young band hoping to one day make it big. Every city needs a good rock club and Corporation lives up to every expectation.
