Valhalla York is a bar and cafe that pays homage to Yorks Viking roots. When we built Valhalla we wanted to capture a number of key things with the development – history, excitement, comfort and fun. We pushed the boundaries as much as we could to do Valhalla the justice it deserves.
During the day Valhalla is a relaxed environment where people can enjoy our own blend of unique Valhalla coffee. We take our hot drinks seriously and can offer a unique and personal experience the more mainstream high street coffee chains struggle to compete with. We also have a great range of cakes and, for the hungrier, rustic meat and cheese platters.
On an evening and as darkness comes Valhalla becomes a different beast and people can expect to find a cosy environment illuminated by candlelight. Valhalla stocks a full bar of beers, spirits, wines and mead which, if the mood takes you, can be drunk the traditional way out of a horn.
When people visit Valhalla we typically get people saying they feel they are in somewhere unique and different. That’s what we’ve tried to capture. In essence we want people to walk into Valhalla and leave the rest of the world behind.
Throughout the day and night Valhalla plays consistent and classic rock music. We feel it fits very well with the theme itself – many folks into all things Viking also appreciate the odd bit of Led Zeppelin or Rolling Stones!
One of the best parts of Valhalla is its social atmosphere. We naturally attract a diverse crowd – those into history, rock fans, tourists, locals, beer lovers and the regular person just out for a drink. When you combine this with a small and interesting environment like we have in Valhalla it provides a vibe that is hard to beat.
In the Halls of Valhalla, where the Brave may live Forever.
