Sheffield’s new Lord Mayor, Councillor Magid Magid, has been treated to a sneak peek at the city’s hotly anticipated new Caribbean restaurant and bar.

Councillor Magid, who has been dubbed the ‘coolest Mayor ever’, paid a visit to Turtle Bay while the team were busy preparing for the big opening on June 3.

An amazing transformation of the National Union of Miners building will see Turtle Bay bring their trademark jerk spices, sunshine-inspired cocktails and island spirit to the city at their new two-floor restaurant on Holly Street.

New Openings Manager, Elijah Hunter-Finn showed Councillor Magid around the restaurant, introduced him to staff, and even gave him a go at making Turtle Bay’s trademark tropical drinks behind the beach-shack island bar. The Lord Mayor made ‘mocktails’ (non-alcoholic cocktails) with great flair!

“This was not like any mayoral meeting I’ve ever had,” said Elijah. “Councillor Magid was so cool and fun, and we loved showing him round. He seemed to really like what we’re doing here at Turtle Bay and said he is looking forward to coming to check us out properly when we open.

“We can’t wait to welcome him and everyone in Sheffield – and what an amazing welcome to the city for us! We already love it here – bring on the 3rd June!”

Turtle Bay serves up beautiful Caribbean soul food and blissful tropical cocktails, in a vibrant, laidback environment, all the to tune of a great reggae soundtrack.

Eestablished in 2010 Turtle Bay has 42 restaurants across the UK andtwo in Germany.  With its Support Centre in Bristol, Turtle Bay employs over 1500 people across all its sites and has more restaurants planned for 2018.
