Welcome to Café Totem, the brand new rock & roll home of Sheffield. situated at 23 Furnival Gate in Sheffield (opposite the top of ‘The Moor’), and spread across two levels. The site was formerly known as ‘The Rocking Chair’.

Ran by a highly motivated team comprised of musicians and industry professionals, the establishment boasts a 100 capacity live music venue downstairs - with extended stage area and high quality upgraded sound system. It’s an ideal location for all acts who appreciate an intimate yet well specced experience. From touring artists to grassroots local shows, this is the place to get genuinely ‘up-close and personal’ with your fans, whilst still enjoying the great stage monitoring and sound quality expected from larger scale tour dates.

The upstairs bar area has been refurbished with extra seating, rustic decor and more, whilst the bar itself now serves a range of bottled beers, lagers & spirits and a selection of draught lagers and ales on tap. In the new year we'll also be serving light meals and Italian coffee and tea in the daytime, with high speed WiFi and the best new tunes playing all day long.

With a huge focus on the best live music, club nights and the music community, we strive to be the HUB of the local music scene and a place for the creative community to mix, party and make new connections.
