Setting The Bar High: Grappa's Launch Marks A New Era in Sheffield Bar/Dining

A five-month operation to transform Glossop Road’s former Sinclair’s building into "the region’s finest Italian bar/restaurant" officially opened to the public last week.
Scores of the region’s VIPs got a sneak preview of the two-storey Grappa last week as the staff and kitchen geared up for the venue’s first customers in the run-up to Christmas.
The venue is promising to set the standard for quality Italian bar/dining in the area and has already secured a partnership with one of northern Italy’s most renowned grappa distilleries as it works toward becoming the UK’s capital of the liqueur.
Grappa is the brainchild of leading Sheffield restaurateur Steve Zsirai, who has previously enjoyed great success in the Glossop Road/West Street area. He landed his first restaurant management job at K-Pasa in the late 1990s. He previously worked at the legendary Flying Pizza and was the brains behind the Tequila Bar, which continues to draw crowds on West Street week after week.
One of his most popular ventures was Viva Tequila in the Gleadless area of Sheffield, and he has also run one of Chesterfield’s highest-rated Italian restaurants, Giorgio’s, for the past 10 years.
Steve Zsirai said, “It’s been a challenging journey over the past few months, but I’m confident our Grappa concept — coupled with our amazing team — is set to make Grappa one of the best Italian experiences anywhere in the country and become a true destination venue in Sheffield city centre.”
The two-story bar/restaurant, complete with its outdoor terraza, is set to offer flavors and dishes from right across Italy. The bar/restaurant is set to offer the very finest daytime coffee and lunch, after-work drinks and dinner, and late-night music and dancing until 2 am on the weekend.
A welcoming, rustic downstairs bar area will be complemented by a more luxurious upstairs, 70-seater restaurant.
Grappa is situated at 266 Glossop Road, Sheffield S10 2HS.
