The creative team behind Nottingham’s The Hockley Arts Club and Das Kino are preparing to launch a new bar, kitchen and arcade this spring.

Located at 9 Fletcher Gate in Nottingham’s Lace Market, the new flagship venue will be named Penny Lane.

The bar takes inspiration from seaside family holidays, summer trips to Matlock Bath and Blackpool and Brighton’s iconic pier.

Speciality cocktails and an extensive handpicked selection of food and drinks will feature on the menu, which has been designed to reflect the seaside look and feel.

Penny Lane will serve both a daytime and evening venue, and boasts a nostalgic amusement arcade with a mid-century British inspired design throughout.

Occupying a 7,000 sq ft purpose built commercial unit close to the tram stop, the vintage-inspired venue will have a “50’s glam vibe”, with flashes of neon and bold coloured textures, to tie in with the brands signature style.

Michael Johnson, operations director at Penny Lane, said: “Nottingham is such a vibrant city, known for its artistic flare and independent scene, so it was really important that we created something different with a unique interactive element – Penny Lane is just that.”

“There will be unusual cocktails on the menu, designed to bring back British childhood memories.

“Our Twister cocktail at The Hockley Arts Club is extremely popular, so we will be using similar ideas to fit in with the fun quirky theme at Penny Lane, as well as colourful lights and stunning monochrome tiles to deliver an iconic venue that the city can be proud of.

“We are really excited to open up the venue during the daytime too, which will be suitable for families and children looking to have a go on the games and relax with some casual food and drink.”

The build is well under way and Penny Lane will be open to the public in late April.
