    A great nightspot in Nottingham frequented by probably a slightly older clientelle, there are a lot of nightspots for the young at heart. The bar was being revamped the next day - nothing to do with my visit the previous evening! When the manager came round to greet me & my friend John D I lept up to shake his hand & compliment him on the venue & spilt my drink but they very kindly gave us another round on the house.

    There is a split level bar & a separate restuarant with some great mood lighting. We chose some cocktails off the menu and were greeted by the manager of the bar. The staff are excellent and very attentive you will come out feeling like a movie star. The food I have on good authority is great.

    Let me just warn you about this hot trendy night spot it is very happening & fairly pricey and I did find it hard to tear myself away from the champagne cocktails. They serve pan-asian food in the restuarant. We sat at the bar & I think I was just gazing into the eyes of our barman a very talented young man.

  • Nottingham as a whole..: Girls Nights

    by Jessica_Faith Updated Apr 22, 2008

    No wonder Nottingham is no longer the place to be..

    If anybody is thinking of having a Hen night in Nottingham please think again.
    We went as a group of 6 and stayed at the Lace Market hotel. We were hoping for a fun night of good food, good wine and lots of dancing.
    What we actually got were rude, obnoxious, arrogant people who went out of their way to argue and make nasty comments.
    The taxi drivers knew we were not from the area and charged us £12.50 from revolution to the Lace market hotel (we had only paid £4.00 from the train station which is further away.) Somebody from the city council should be looking into this..

    I'm not surprised people are saying Nottingham has lost its appeal.. As the staff they hire for hospitality services would be better suited to the prison service! Give it a couple more years and even the beautiful architecture wouldn't attract a single visitor with the local’s attitudes.

    What was once a lovely city where I went to Uni is now a much lagging behind city.

    Please, if you want to enjoy a fun girl’s night out, pick somewhere you will be welcomed with open arms.. Liverpool, Newcastle, Dublin ect.. Anywhere other than Nottingham.

    The Malt Cross: Friendly, lively. My kind of place

    by traceyspacey Written Apr 13, 2008

    I don't know Nottingham that well, however I can recommend the Malt Cross on St James Street, just off from the old market square. http://maltcross.com/home/index.html

    This used to be a dance hall and therefore designed for live bands, which they have on from time to time. They do charge for this. Comfy sofa's and chairs, good place to be. Closed on Mondays.

    Good beer, wine and a lively, friendly atmosphere.

    Dress Code: No dress code

    ~ Credo's Nightclub ~: ~ My Local Nightclub ~

    by Heavens-Mirror Updated Feb 4, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Credo's Nightclub is my local as its only 5 minutes from where i live. I used to going out clubbing here & i always have a great laugh with all my mates. I like it because its cheap to get in, free before 11pm & only £1-2 after 11pm. Its open Thurs, Fri & Sat nights, i enjoy all the nights although Thurs used to be my favourite.

    It was refurbished not so long ago so its nice inside & also the new bar at the back of Credos is nice, its an open air bar called Stables, there are heaters outside to keep you warm.

    It plays mostly R&B music here with a mix of pop music & dance. The doorman are quite strict on asking for ID now as there used to be too many underage people coming in. I used to get asked for it but they know me now. So if your ever out in Lomg Eaton on your visit give Credo's a try.

    Dress Code: Anything you like.... smart casual no caps/hats.

    The Maze: An Eclectic Mix

    by raquelitalarga Updated Jan 28, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Maze is a pub with a smallish live music venue behind. It has a wide variety of acts from a 9 member ska band to house to comedy and I've heard burlesque. Always found it's a chilled friendly atmosphere with a lot of students mixed in with good sprinkling of 20/30/40 somethings.

    Dress Code: No dress code, it's not that type of place!

    Yates's Wine Lodge: Victorian Gin Palace

    by iwys Updated Mar 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yates's Wine lodge was once the grandest gin palace in the Midlands. Country visitors who came to town for the Goose Fair paid two pence each to gaze in awe at its ornate decor. The Notttingham Town Clerk described the place as , "a resort of which there is no greater source of immorality and degradation." Go in there on a Friday night, and you will see that it hasn't changed much! If you don't want to stand in the crowded main bar, you can go upstairs and sit in the balustraded gallery, looking down on the crowd below.

    There is a DJ and live entertainment, which attracts a lively young crowd, many of whom are a bit drunk. It is so crowded at weekends that you may have to wait more than ten minutes to get served at the bar.

    It is now part of a nationwide chain of bars.

    Rock City: Rock!

    by illumina Written Jun 6, 2006

    Rock City is possibly one of the best venues for live gigs in the country - I've been to quite a few, and there's just something about the atmosphere here, it's always great. They also have club nights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with an under-18s night with live bands or alternative karaoke on Sundays.

    Keane's Head: Nice beer

    by coopergirl2003 Written May 21, 2006

    The Keane's head is in the Lace Market area of Nottingham. It's a small one room traditional ish bar with a few tables and chairs. It's a no smoking pub which for me is wonderful but so many other pubs and bars nearby aren't so you end up smelly anyway!

    The best bit about this pub is the atmosphere and the choice of beer. It seems to attract an older audience (by older I mean maturuty not age) who enjoy sitting and talking and not the 'meat market' crowd. There's a good range of beers, my favourite being a cherry beer! It's lovely for a nice relaxed evening out

    Dress Code: Wear anything you like, I had jeans, nice fitted top and high heeled boots but there were equally people in trainers and t-shirts - no one looked or felt out of place.

    Royal Concert Hall: Pop and classics

    by iwys Updated May 18, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Royal Concert Hall is a modern hall which hosts both pop and classical concerts. I've seen stars as diverse as Maxim Vengerov, Everything But The Girl, Vladimir Ashenazy and Craig David perform here. It is well-designed, so that even if you are sitting up in the second tier, you do not feel too far from the stage

    Pitcher and Piano: Bar in a Church

    by iwys Updated May 15, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Pitcher and Piano is one of the most unusual bar restaurants in Britain, as it is in a church. The building was originally built as a Unitarian chapel, and its spire dominates the Nottingham skyline. You can sit in a pew, sipping cocktails, with a beautiful stained glass window in the background. It is a popular early evening place, before people move onto the noisier clubs in the city centre.

    You may see the name elsewhere as it is part of a chain of 25 bars across England and Wales, but they are not all in churches.
