Buzz·Posted on May 29, 201515 Bars In Nottingham You Must Visit Before You DieCocktails, music stores, churches...and a door in a bookcase! Nottingham's bar scene has it all.by Alec FrusherBuzzFeed ContributorFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. Das Kino Alec Frusher / Via frusheronfood.co.uk A German-cinema–themed bar, with ping pong tables to hire? That should be enough to get you to this new Nottingham bar. Just be wary, shots from the photo booth might come back to haunt you if you have one too many. 2. Pepper Rocks View this photo on Instagram instagram.com / Via pepperrocks.co.uk You may be in the heart of Nottingham but Pepper Rocks gives the feel of a rural European setting. This hidden spot manages to deliver cocktails in a warm atmosphere that feels like you're drinking among friends. 3. Tilt Tilt / Via tiltbar.co.uk This bar has to be one of the most popular in the city... I can never find a seat! For my money it is the best place in Nottingham for classic cocktails. They've also got a gin garden. 4. Rocket at Saltwater Swava / Via swava.co.uk Come summertime there are few busier locations than the substantial terrace at the top of the Cornerhouse. You can have a chilled out afternoon drink in the sun, or decide you are "out out" and hit the dancefloor thanks to the resident DJ. 5. Riverbank View this photo on Instagram instagram.com / Via nottinghampost.com We're miles from a beach here in Nottingham, but the Trent is the next best thing. Watching the sun come down over the river with a gin and tonic in hand equals a pretty perfect evening in my book. 6. Cucamara Cucamara / Via Twitter / @cucamara This cheap tequila house holds a special place in the heart's of Nottingham students. The infamous £1 tequila slammers might have something to do with it... 7. Boilermaker Autumn Days / Via autumnedginton.com Ever wondered why all those people are hanging around near an old boiler shop? It's a secret bar...obviously. For those seeking decadence, head through the hidden door and try the "99 Problems Put a Flake in One". 8. Sobar Sobar A bar with a difference. In case you hadn't guessed it from the name, Sobar is an alcohol-free zone! This daytime hangout gives everyone an "bar" alternative to the default coffee chain option. 9. The Malt Cross Bees Make Honey Creative Community / Via beesmakehoneycc.com One of the most charming bars going – over 120 years of character lie in the restored Victorian music hall that The Malt Cross inhabits. They're sticking to those roots, as plenty of live music is still hosted within those old walls. 10. Coco Tang Coco Tang / Via Twitter / @houseofcocotang Just the right mix between cocktail bar and underground club, Coco Tang is a hotspot for savvy students and professionals alike. With one of the more inventive cocktail menus in town, they are constantly evolving their offering. The Tiramisu is the latest on their list. 11. Pitcher and Piano Em Con / Via em-con.co.uk Yes it's a chain, but this bar is set in a converted church. Who wouldn't want a Pimm's on a pew, or some fizz by a font? 12. Turtle Bay Turtle Bay / Via turtlebay.co.uk Rum is very much order of the day at this popular Caribbean restaurant and bar. With 2-4-1 cocktails from midday until 7pm, there's plenty of time to enjoy some island sunshine in Nottingham. 13. Sinatra Sinatra / Via Facebook / Sinatra's Bar-Restaurant Nottingham There aren't many wine bars in Nottingham. This one though, is the pick of the bunch. A list that changes often and plenty of choice by the glass means I do get a kick outta here. 14. Pit and Pendulum View this photo on Instagram instagram.com When you enter a bar under torches of fire you know it's somewhere unique. Pit and Pendulum's gothic features continue inside. Particularly fun is the hidden bookcase entrance to the men's toilets! 15. Crafty Crow View this photo on Instagram instagram.com / Via nottsbrew.co.uk My pub of choice at the moment is the Crafty Crow – it offers excellent local craft beer but pays good attention to cider, wine, and spirits too. Its corner berth is in view of Nottingham Castle and is the ideal place to while away an afternoon.
