Spark York is the complete opposite of most bars in York. While most are characterised by their timber-framed medieval buildings, Spark:York is made from old shipping containers.
This isn’t just a bar, it’s a hub of different bars, food, shops, community theatre and even has a brewery. It’s set to live on Picadilly in York until 2020 – celebrating individuality and creativity.
With burgers, pizza, street food, Thai, sweet bakery treats, crepes, beer, a wine cellar, cocktails and more – you won’t know where to start on entering Spark York. Best enjoyed on a warm day, as there’s lots of outdoor seating. You might want to avoid busy periods. We went on bank holiday Sunday – a hot day, also opening weekend.
We were lucky in that we spotted some seating inside Cuckoo Brewery. The guy working there said that nobody had come inside and sat down all day! They were just queuing outside. If it wasn’t for this, we would have struggled to find somewhere to sit as the place was pretty packed.
A unique place with something for everyone.
