Take advantage of their talent pool, epic beer garden and all round chill vibes. 

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's echoes a bit of NYC cool, this is the ultimate social hangout and chill out bar in Nottingham perfect for sofa surfing, live music and sipping stunning cocktails. 

Hidden down the back streets of Hockley, a specialist drinking den and new wave tapas bar awaits. The Rum House comes with some prohibition edge to its décor of burgundy chesterfield sofas and exposed brick walls. But, the cocktails are what really steal the show here as vintage labels and signature blends come as standard. Their distinctive Caribbean tapas is also TDF.

Known as one of Nottingham's best gig venues, The Rescue Rooms have seen the likes of artists like The Libertines to London Grammer, Calvin Harris and Pearl Jam take to their stage, cementing them as a city favourite for live music in Nottingham.
