Ronnie Aronica & Jack Wakelin

Tom ‘Ronnie’ Aronica and Jack Wakelin are the dynamic duo behind acclaimed Sheffield cocktail bar – Public. In the site of a former public convenience for Sheffield Town Hall, Public has won praise and accolade in its two short years since opening in 2017. Through Jack’s spirit and wine program and Ronnie’s creative food menu Public has been crowned ‘The Best Place to Drink in The UK’ (Observer Food Monthly awards 2018) and ‘Bar Food Menu of the Year’ (Class Bar Awards 2018). Ronnie and Jack now push boundaries in food and drink with their own Sheffield based supper-club project – Bench.
