Oliver Sykes, lead singer of rock/metal band Bring Me The Horizon, will be opening a bar and arcade in Sheffield, England called ‘Church: Temple of Fun.’ If that doesn’t already peak your interest, this venue will be 100% vegan-friendly!
The 220-capacity venue, Church, opens Friday, July 6th, and is located in Osborn Works on Rutland Road. The bar/arcade will incorporate a smorgasbord of things like live music, retro gaming, tattoos, and even South American religious iconography. It will also feature a vegan café with food provided by Make No Bones, as well as a 100% vegan bar.
Oli Sykes, a notorious vegan who has long been advocating for animal rights alongside his bandmates, came up with the idea for Church when he was visiting Brazil. During his trip, he visited a place similar and wanted to open his own inspired version in his hometown of Sheffield.
Osborn Works, the building that Church is being developed in, holds an incredible legacy and is rich in heritage. 20th-century architect, William John Hale, was responsible for many beautiful churches located in Sheffield, and Sykes wants to further develop that heritage by opening a celebratory venue. His hope is to honor Hale’s original design while also relating to 21st-century customers.
Sykes is deeming Church the “temple of fun.”
