Best bars in Nottingham

Booking astag weekend in Nottinghamis always a riot, so use our guide to discover some of the best places to go. However, Nottingham offers a ton more choice with bars of all shapes and all sizes. Go forth and explore!

Baa Bar - Nottingham

This venue’s approach to beverages is literally scientific. Their brightly coloured shooters and smokin’ cocktails, served in flasks, wouldn’t look out of place in a 1950s sci-fi B-movie laboratory. So strap into your rocket ship and prepare to blast off with a fuel tank full of Candy Flux, Rocket Fuel or Dark Matter. And don’t forget to take your Proton Blaster. If we knew science was this ace, we’d have taken more notice during chemistry.

Browns - Nottingham

Specialising in contemporary British cuisine, Brown’s will deliver great food morning, noon and night with everything from a full English to fruit salad and yoghurt to a classic steak pie. The wine list has a good range of exciting new world wines as well as European classics like Chablis and Rioja too. There’s also a selection of cocktails, including their own signature cocktails such as the Long Jerry Iced Tea and the Club Tropics for you to enjoy while a pianist plays in the background.

Ye Olde Salutation Pub

Often described as the city’s number one rock and metal pub, ‘The Old Sal’ has been a local landmark for well over 600 years and, as befitting such a historic establishment, it also has a resident ghost. High on atmosphere, with a staunchly loyal clientele, The Sal hosts regular all-dayers, club nights and visiting bands from hard rock and metal to acoustic nights. The excellent changing selection of real ales is another key attraction.

Astag party in Nottinghamwill be entertaining to say the least, but after your night out don't forget to fix things with some grub at one of the many restaurants and take outs dotted around the centre.
