Aria is a new lounge bar set to open in Sheffield City Centre’s Kommune, in conjunction with drinks brand Campari.
Aria Lounge Bar set to open in Kommune
Sheffield food hall Kommune have teamed up with world-renowned drinks brand Campari to create a new Lounge Bar experience at their Castle House location.
The new bookings-only bar is to open in the former gallery space behind bookstore La Biblioteka in the popular Castlegate food hall.
With a warm, cosseted and colourful space, Aria will offer specially curated cocktails and a special ten-dish menu created by some of the venue’s amazing chefs.
“What we’ve done is move from high end street food in Kommune, to smaller, more considered plates for sharing, so the resident chefs can really show off what they can do.
“That was important for us all. There’s no point in us bringing in someone else to cook, when we already have amazing chefs in Kommune. And each kitchen has a distinct identity and personality and that’s what they bring to each dish.”Jon Perry, Co-founder, Aria and Kommune
Full Table Service at Aria Lounge Bar
Whilst a popular feature of Kommune is its convenient ordering app, Aria will offer a more hands-on service.
Expert wait staff will be on-hand offering a full table service in the Lounge Bar, uniformed in New York cocktail bar inspired vintage jackets.
As well as a menu of cocktails — many featuring partner spirit Campari — there will be an offering of Eden Wines, and even some craft beers for those who don’t fancy a cocktail.
“Aria is for the love of good company.
I think that’s something that’s become more and more meaningful to people. One thing that everybody has learned through Covid is the need for good company and the need for connection which seems to come naturally to our Italian cousins. We aim to bring the essence of that but with a Kommune twist, it’s all about sharing great cocktails, wine and great food with good company.
“Visually and there’s an element of reinventing the traditional in this space, Campari as a brand has always been connected to arts and creativity and we have played with that in the space, bringing rich colour and a touch of la Dolce Vita!”Nick Morgan, Co-founder, Kommune and Aria
“It’s somewhere special for date night, or for that night out with good friends, somewhere tucked away, with comfy couches where you can linger a little longer. It’s a really nice fit and addition to the city-centre and we can’t wait to show it to everybody.”Jon Perry, Co-founder, Aria and Kommune
