Like cocktails? Love Popolo. This excellent bar has a huge menu of fantastic cocktails to tantalise - as well as a good range of draught beers and bottles. A popular place within the gorgeous Leopold Square, Popolo is ideally situated for food and drinks with friends, colleagues, partners or any occasion!

Popolo’s major selling point is its extensive and well studied cocktail menu, offering up a huge array of cocktails, carefully selected continental beers, spirits and wines. This is also complemented perfectly by a balanced food menu of modern Italian cuisine, all easily accessible in the heart of Sheffield City Centre.

I love this place if its a quick drink after work or a place to start a night out you cant really go wrong, has plenty of seating outside if its a nice day and if its just a couple of you its fun to sit at the bar and watch the staff making cocktails. Really varied menu and masses of spirits to choose from whatever your taste might be. The staff always take the time to talk you through the menu if you need it or make you something to your liking.
Whilst having a "quick drink after work" we got talking to one of the bar staff about rum and ended up in a full tasting session. 10 different rums from the cheapest to the most expensive with the bar man telling us a full history of where they come from and how they are created, all in all he spent about 2 hours with us. Both me and my partner had a full shot each of all 10 rums and learnt a few things in the process. I don't think its something they do as a session but I totally recommend asking as they are more than happy to share the knowledge, all in all I the bill was under £75.00 which I thought was fantastic value wise, it works out on average £3.75 a shot obviously some were far more expensive than others however we got a 2 hours of his time as well. It was really entertaining and his product knowledge was fantastic well worth the money a really good evening.
Deffo worth a visit in my opinion, everything is fresh and the staff are fab.

One of my favourite City Centre bars. One of the smaller looking bars located within the excellent Leopold Square and almost stuck in the corner, but it stands out like a beacon quality-wise.

An excellent cocktail menu can leave you a little overwhelmed with choice but not to worry as the staff are on hand to give advice. If you ask nicely they might even make you up a special bespoke cocktail for you based on your own preferences. Prices can be a bit high, but its worth it for the excellent taste, atmosphere and service.

On a quiet night sit at the bar and ask the staff about all the drinks - they are extremely knowledgeable and only to happy to talk you through. Indeed, on one evening it turned into a full-on rum tasting session for me, trying each of the many, many different types of rum.

In the summertime its also an excellent place to sit outside in Leopold Square, especially in a padded-seated booth with friends.

Recommended.
