Nottingham is famous for its bars and clubs and Saturday nights draw thousands to the city both in the city centre and the Lace Market area. There's also a wide selection of restaurants, in popular areas like Forman Street, Chapel Bar and Low Pavement in the city centre or around Goose Gate to the east in Hockley. Finally, why not take in a show at the Theatre Royal or see a concert at the Nottingham Arena.
Nottingham has a wide selection of restaurants, with many national chains moving into the city. There are though plenty of great independent restaurants too, especially in the Lace Market area. Popular dining areas are Forman Street with the Cornerhouse at its centre, the top of Maid Marian Way or Chapel Bar with its outdoor seating.
Saturday night is Nottingham's biggest night out and thousands from the surrounding area as well as a myriad of stag and hen parties descend on the city centre. The busiest bars and clubs can be found in the Old Market Square area, especially around Chapel Bar to the west and Pelham Street to the east. In the summer head down to the bars on the canal or head over to the Lace Market for more laid-back venues.
