Valhalla York Bar & Cafe
Honouring York’s Viking heritage, café bar Valhalla is one of a kind
Sun: 11.00 – 23.30
Last drink orders 11pm, last food orders 9pm
On entering the doors of Valhalla, you might pause and wonder: “Where am I going, here?” and that’s exactly the kind of intrigue co-owners Vinnie and Matthew want to inspire once you set foot in their new bar.
The hall of Valhalla is where Viking warriors enjoyed a glorious afterlife after an honourable death in battle. There they would stay, feasting, drinking and eventually meet their family. Not too dissimilar from what people will be doing in the café-bar today then (minus the wars and the mud and straw walls).
You might settle in an armchair with a coffee and cake in the day or arrive in the night time to admire the shields on the walls with a pint in hand but be assured, everyone from pagan society groups to families are welcome.
“When you open the doors, and enter the halls of Valhalla, we want you to forget about the outside world and leave everything behind.”
