European bars to visit in 2019

Public – Sheffield, UK

While Sheffield may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of world­-class cocktails, this “Wes Anderson train carriage in an old bog”, is a stand­out in the north of England’s cocktail scene.

Public, the fourth venue from hospitality experts James O’Hara and James Hill, has transformed a 19th­-century public toilet into an intimate drinking den. “It feels we’ve been building up to something like Public for nearly a decade,” says O’Hara. “The discovery of the site was the initial inspiration and from then it was all about setting out to make the perfect small cocktail bar.”
