Downtown Hull’s iconic bar, Sharkeys, is back and set to reopen this month

Downtown Hull’s legendary bar, Sharkeys, looks set to reopen.

The George Street site closed in 2014 and sat empty until its brief reopening in 2018 before being reinvented and opening as Warehouse 21 later that year. But now the venue is set to reopen once again as Sharkeys and bring back memories of the 90s and 2000s heyday.

There will be a main space that will serve as a dining area with music and cocktails will also be offered. There will be a separate sports bar where food will also be served.

The bar is set to open in mid-April, which will be great news for those who remember the bar in its heyday.

Sharkeys, the legendary bar in downtown Hull, will reopen

The venue was a Hull institution for many. From its spinning dance floor to the abundance of flavored vodkas, many have had great nights there.

Before closing eight years ago, Sharkeys carried on a long tradition of great venues on George Street which have included, The Goose and Granite, Room, Biarritz, KU2, Caesar’s Palace and Planet Earth, over the years.

Formerly known as The Georgian, the pub was a popular stop for those working in this part of town, or en route to Pozition which later became Valbon before closing.

The reopening pleased many people who have fond memories of the place.

Paul ‘Ronnie’ Holt commented, “The name is back!! Can’t wait!”

Rose Georgia said, “I’m so excited.”
