Pointing Dog Clubhouse, Sheffield
Project: Clubhouse conversion and extension
Location: Sheffield, Ecclesall Road
Client: Pointing Dog Group
The Pointing Dog Clubhouse in Sheffield is the third addition to the Pointing Dog brand and offers a unique clubhouse experience.
The former Polish ex-servicemen’s club on Ecclesall Road had been used as a club since 1953 with a licensed bar, restaurant and licensed entertainment. The Group invested £1.5 Million to convert and extend the landmark building with works including the demolition and rebuilding of a single storey extension to the rear of the property, new single storey extension to the east of the existing building, alterations to existing elevations and the creation of new pedestrian access.
The restoration has been sympathetic to the building and the location with all elements tying together with the Clubhouse theme. The New York tavern bar features a bespoke lighting pendant made from shells of redundant kegs running along the full-length bar. Adjoining the bar area, a relaxing lounge area with painted timber panelling and comfortable seating runs into the new large extension where old cinema lighting has been reworked and sits high up in the pitched roof. The outside terraces offer a fantastic sun trap in the summer whilst the first floor of the Clubhouse is available for private dining and functions.
