Clubbing In Nottingham
Thousands of partygoers flock to Nottingham every weekend
to make the most of the massive array of nightclubs in
the city. Here we’ve chosen a select few but it’s
fair to say there are plenty more where these come from.
The city’s number one nightclub is probably the
hugely popular Media [map] on Queen Street, particularly since it won the prestigious Ericsson Muzik Award for Club Venue of the Year in 1999. Housed in an old cinema in the city centre, it's
a breathtaking conversion covering three floors,
which boast a multi-tiered dance floor, two clubrooms, six bars, a multimedia lounge, a VIP lounge and the members-only Suede Bar.
Possibly the most up-market club in Nottingham and certainly
the place to find visiting celebrities and footballers
is Faces [map] on The Broadway in the cool Lace Market area. A firm favourite
among the city’s well-dressed professional crowd,
this club sits right in the middle of many equally hip
café-bars. Faces itself boasts two bars, a state-of-the-art
dance floor and a great balcony. The music here is
a diverse mix of commercial dance, soul, R ‘n’
B and hip hop.
For more R ‘n’ B head to the Lizard Lounge [map] on St Mary’s Gate, which has long been an institution
in Nottingham’s clubbing scene. Spread over three
floors, the club has a number of dance floors, a champagne
bar, chill out lounges, and a cocktail bar.
If chart music and commercial dance is more your thing,
then get along to Ocean [map] at Greyfriar Gate, which hosts regular student nights during the week and offers dance and house music for die
hard clubbers at weekends.
Located on Talbot Street in the heart of Nottingham, Rock
as the name suggests, is the city's dedicated rock
club and one of the best of its kind in the country.
Although it’s a big hit among the student population,
this club does attract a diverse crowd with its
mix of alternative rock, hip hop and rap music.
Other nightclubs that may be worth checking out while
you’re in Nottingham include The Bomb [map] on Bridlesmith Gate, a cellar-style club with an ice
cave-style interior, and The Palais [map] on Lower Parliament Street, one of the city oldest and
most popular establishments.
