image(5)Located at 4501 Sheffield Street in the Mayfair section of Phila., is a real cool place called the Sheffield Tavern. For many years this neighborhood spot  was the place where you can walk to and know what to expect when it comes to food and drink and atmosphere.  A big change has taken place at the Sheffield, and many still are not aware of the changes, as the place re-opened in February 2012…and speaking with   Danielle Jovovich, the head bartender, she filled us in on the new Sheffield Tavern and Dance Club.
” The Sheffield Tavern is now more then just a local tavern, it is place that also offers so much for anyone and for everything you would look for to enjoy yourself ” she says.” We re-opened in February of 2012 and with new management.- Ed Bradly and John Mc Camley and the two of them really changed the look inside. The lounge area is very modern looking and features  a black granite top bar in the back area along with maple wood floors and has the feel of a sexy center city lounge..  We have the front bar area with a big bar as soon as you enter into the tavern and this is where the daily fun begins each day at 7 am.with our Bartender Beverly mon to friday.  Then at night the Tavern explodes into a Dance Club…yes, the lights and atmosphere take over with the modern industrial look and from a corner tavern you are now into a plush Dance Club”.
The Sheffiled Tavern is open 7 days a week and also has a great kitchen where you can sample excellent bar food, from appetizers to sandwiches to pizza .and of course finger foods.
Danielle explained to us about the dance nights and what goes on over at the Sheffield. “We are doing something that no -one else is doing in our area and that is offering a country night every wednesday…it is so much fun and each week we look forward to this”.  DJ Yessir spins the modern day country tunes on Wed….The nights of music are:….wednesday, thursdays, fridays and saturdays…steady DJ’s making the music come alive and the music is Top 40 House DJ’s are:  DJ Crumb on fridays and DJ Stampone on saturdays along with special nights by DJ Yessir. They offer great drink specials daily…
The average age that comes to the Sheffield tavern is all over the board.from a young 21 to a person over their  50’s.  They offer Happy Hour from 4 to 6pm with 1./2 price drinks. On friday and saturdays they have a nice loyal young group who make the Sheffield the Dance Club that it is…on the weekend you better get their early because this place is packed.
Sports is a big ticket in our area and the Sheffield  has HDTV’s behind the large front bar area for all sporting events.
We asked Danielle  what she liked most about being a bartender at the Sheffield Tavern and what it’s like working there and she ended the interview  by saying this..”.All of us here ( there are 39 Bartenders) put on a good show when behind the bar and we enjoy the kind of relationships that we establish with our patrons. The Sheffield has a good vibe and that is what it’s like working here.
” It’s really a cool place with good vibe.”
