Box Nottingham

For a trendy sports bar with all kinds of entertainment, Box in the city centre is a top shout. Not only do they offer darts, shuffleboard and private karaoke rooms, but you can also nab two for one cocktails from Sunday to Wednesday. As for food? Expect American-style eats like spicy chicken burgers, jalapeno-topped hotdogs or loaded fries.

The Lacehouse

Set in the city's ultimately creative district and one that's rich in history, The Lacehouse gets its name from residing in one of the old factories of the Lace Market district. Having been renovated with a contemporary loft style that echoes a bit of NYC cool, this is the ultimate social hangout.


Junkyard takes on the outfit of a neighbourhood bar with minimalist design and quite a collection of craft beers. Boasting 15 taps of American, British and European labels, you can fill your boots on hops and even gobble down some of their lip-smacking dishes like hot wings and fish tacos.
