After five years of serving up refreshing cocktails, Mexican-inspired food and laid back vibes, this Division Street favourite has given itself a fresh makeover. Its classic pub tiles shine brighter than before, the walls pop with pastel colours, and the floor is buffed for dancing.
Central to Gatsby’s renovation is their new menu inspired by contemporary fusion dining. Taking creative cues from food cultures across the world, Gatsby’s kitchen brings together flavours and ingredients on a selection of ‘Global Small Plates’. These social, shareable bites – packed full of vegetarian and vegan dishes – range from contemporary favourites like Szechuan aubergine and ‘KFC’ (a spicy, Indian-influenced fried chicken) to kimchi spring rolls, Turkish peppers and masala sea bass.
Gatsby’s fresh, spicy food goes great with their updated cocktail menu, which takes the same contemporary fusion approach. Why not try a Coffee Negroni or a Salted Caramel Old Fashioned? The mouth-tingling, Habanero-infused 12 O’Clock Somewhere is destined to be a future classic.
At weekends, Gatsby is a perfect place to get a tasty stomach-liner before heading upstairs and taking your seat in Daisy’s table-service cocktail bar (open Fridays and Saturdays, 8pm-2am – booking necessary) or spending the night on the Gatsby dance floor.
If it all gets a bit much, join us for a Hip Hop Brunch on Sundays, where the bottomless booze and big plates will turn your gremlin back into a mogwai.
The Gatsby features in a short film we made with Sheffield Hallam Uni, alongside a bunch of the city's other foodie favourites – watch below.
