Per a report from Kerrang!, the frontman will be opening a 220-capacity venue called Church, a venue that’s not only a bar, but an arcade, that is set to open in Sheffield.
The venue will feature everything that’s important to Oli’s life: vegan food, live music, tattoos, retro gaming and South American iconography.
What’s more? The venue will also have a vegan café (with food provided by local Sheffield business Make No Bones) and a vegan-friendly bar.
According to the report, Sykes came up with the idea for the new business after he went to a similar venue in Brazil:
“Our building has incredible heritage and I wanted to develop a [bar/arcade] concept that truly celebrated and developed that legacy,” he explained. “We wanted something that fitted with William John Hale’s original and stunning design [of the building] but provided something to wow 21st-century customers. Our strapline is ‘Temple of Fun’ – we provide a whole experience.”
Sykes’ new venue officially opens to the public on Friday, July 6!
