From the team behind Peddler Market comes Factory Floor – the UK’s first bar combining the best in Drip infusion, Tank beer and Audio.
Occupying a former spring factory in Neepsend, one of Sheffield’s most industrious areas, Factory Floor unifies drip methodology, tank beer and cutting-edge acoustics – An expert fusion of traditional and contemporary, culminating in the Drink™ Of™ Your™ Dreams™.
Looking up at the bar, your gaze is met by an unfamiliar system of apparatus. Reminiscent of a laboratory, this equipment is responsible for the unique process creating our trademark drips. Atop the vast structure crawling its way up the wall, you’ll find an array of spirits, each the base for one of Factory Floor’s unique drips.
The process begins with the liquor being poured into the hopper where it slowly drips into the waiting substrate below. This substrate – a mixture of exotic fruits, herbs and spices – is gently infused with the spirit dripping from above, slowly percolating, extracting every subtle nuance and flavour with every rhythmic drip. After several hours, the perfectly balanced infusion accumulates in the bottom beaker, where it lies, ready to be consumed straight or mixed with a perfectly paired house-crafted mixer.
The final phase of the process is the garnish. We enlisted the services of Leaf & Shoot, Sheffield’s leading Bioponics lab, to create a bespoke vertical microgreen system where herbs such as fennel, coriander and red basil will grow, ready to add the final flare to your drink.
The beer at Factory Floor is as local as it gets – brewed on-site by Neepsend Brew Co. Established in 2015, Neepsend Brew Co. originally stood on the banks of the River Don before moving to 92 Burton to join the bustling community of makers and doers. Home to a constantly changing range of beers, The idea behind the brewery is simple: no hype, no hard sell, just brew the kind of beer that everyone enjoys.
It is that same no-hassle approach that rings true when it is time to take delivery. A hose is linked from the vessel in the brewery, and the golden beer is pumped directly into our chilled tanks, towering either side of our bar – zero hassle, zero carbon footprint.
Imagine a venue where the sound moulds perfectly to its surroundings and traces the shape of its guests. Where the deepest basslines and the crispest highs diffuse throughout the entirety of the space. That is the Danley Audio sound. This groundbreaking technology, created by one of ‘the most innovative loudspeaker designers in the industry’, Tom Danley, was imported direct from Florida and set up quadrophonically, ready to take their new residence at Factory Floor, providing the sounds from the suspended deck above the Factory Floor entrance.
At Factory Floor, it’s about more than just the drink. It’s about relaxing and unwinding with your loved ones, enveloped in world-leading sound. It’s about the terrazzo concrete bar capturing the nostalgic sparks of the workshop before it. It’s about the industrial lighting reminiscent of the once gas-lit street lights of Neepsend and the sparks made in the factory it was before. As day turns to night, the stark industrial space of Factory Floor takes on its true form – sleek, understated and uninhibited.
