Welcome to The Washington
Situated on the lower side of Sheffield City centre's Devonshire Green, a little off the more heavily beaten track that is Division Street and West Street stands The Washington, an institution steeped in local heritage.
Built during the early days of the industrial revolution, The Washington is the last bastion of the long since demolished Washington Works where workers would have drunk late into the night to forget the hardship of their day. Fast forward to the 1970/80s and the pub was a notorious hangout for local musicians including The Human League and Pulp (whose drummer Nick Banks would even enjoy a brief stint as landlord during the 1990s!).
Nowadays we'd like to think we're keeping both flames alive; We still play a big part in the local grass roots music scene, hosting frequent live music events all year round, but with a late license until 3am and a roster of the finest local DJs we keep the party going at the weekend long after many of the other bars have called it a night!
