The Harley reviews

By Charlotte L.

Used to come to the Harley loads as a student for their variety of gigs and club nights and for general late night hijinx. Recently I have been going more for a lunchtime burger, as they are great! I still come to the Harley sometimes for a night out as I have always found the crowd to be good fun and the drink prices to be reasonable. In my eyes the Harley is pretty much a Sheffield institution. Its not to everyones tastes, but if you like having fun, then it should suit!!

The Harley is the most over priced, pretentious pub that I've ever had the misfortune of stepping into. On a non-live night, the music played is all the modern 'indie' stuff, and the place is filled with checked shirts and skinny jeans, and a distinct lack of dancing. I guess the people that go there are just too cool for such mundane actions as dancing. However, on a live night, The Harley, surprisingly enough, becomes even worse. You will have to pay an exorbitant fee to enter the 'Not for profit disorganisation', to listen to one or two exceptionally average bands that play there. The drinks, somehow, manage to take a step up in price, so be prepared to fast for a week afterwards if you visit to Harley and intend to buy more than a single cider. So, all in all, The Harley is to be avoided at all costs. Unless you enjoy listening to bland indie songs and being surrounded by pretentious students with more money than sense, and a nonchalant, 'just got out of bed' hairdo that takes no less that 2 hours to set. Go somewhere else, anywhere else, if you'd like to have a good night in Sheffield.

This bar/night club is the best I have ever been to! I met my Girlfriend there. And!!! their thursday nights are amazing, kind of a tribute to all the music that led to modern dance, they play swing jazz, big band, funk, soul, hiphop, reggae, ragga, roots, ska, dub reggae, blues, scatt, beebop, dancehall... and more, depends on the night! its just 1 hell of a night...WERD REBRAG

An old pub and hotel which has experienced as much change as the city itself, The Harley is a great, versatile bar.

It’s good for drinking in the day while playing a bit of pool, even better for enjoying a late night music sessions. Best of all it offers very reasonable hotel rooms upstairs if you need to crash out.

The Venue
Situated on the south west side of Sheffield, very close to Sheffield University, The Harley is easily found by walking out of town along the lively West Street or even by getting on the Meadowhead tram in town and getting off at the Sheffield uni stop. The Harley gives the impression of a grand old establishment but inside you’ll find a relaxed decor with big comfy sofas, a little raised chill out area and even a small dancefloor.

Like a chameleon, the interior seems to suit any event or time of day. You can quite easily host a business meeting here during the day and then find yourself enjoying a tipsy drink later on.

The People
The Harley is the kind of venue that you can drop into any time of day. Strict but friendly security keep the bar trouble free and the general atmosphere is pretty subdued. That said, it’s been known to get pretty lively on Tuesday nights and at some of the weekend events. With a couple of pool tables and consistently good music you’ll never be bored. Bands that have played here include the Arctic Monkeys and The Long Blondes.

The Food
Food at The Harley is provided in-house by local London Road based Irish caterers, Bohans. From 7.30am on weekdays and 9am at weekends, guests can enjoy a wide selection of hot food including the famous Bohan’s breakfast (£1 to £5), sandwiches and homemade Bohan burgers (£4.50 to £6). On Sunday full roasts are available and if you really want to pig out you can round the meal off with a homemade chocolate brownie or orange and poppy seed drizzle cake (£3).

The Drink
The bar’s selection is not amazingly varied but the selection of spirits and beers is pretty good and definitely not overpriced. One of the most attractive features of The Harley is their late licence which allows them to serve as late as 3am on special occasions.

The Last Word
The Harley is one of those places where the physical space just seems to work. It’s always easy to visit in any context and its connection with a burgeoning Sheffield music scene keeps the Harley's finger on the pulse of night time entertainment.
