Bierkeller to open in Nottingham


A multi-million pound Bierkeller entertainment complex is opening in Nottingham city centre creating more than 100 jobs.

The development will transform three levels of a landmark building on Nottingham’s busy Friar Lane, and will house three bars under one roof.

It’s being created by Burning Night Group, which already owns similar venues in Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester.

With a launch planned for St Patrick’s Day, March 17, the 24,000 square foot complex will feature three different bars over three floors – a traditional Bavarian Bierkeller in the basement, Around the World Bar & Lounge on the ground floor and Shooters sports bar on the first floor.

It will be the latest major investment for the Leeds-based company, which has enjoyed success across the country with its existing bars and restaurants that specialize in a lively dining, drinking and live music experience.

Allan Harper, chief executive of Burning Night Group, said Nottingham played a key part in the business’s future expansion plans.

“We are keen to keep growing and look for cities where we feel we can offer something unique as a leisure destination,” Allan said. “We saw a lot of potential in Nottingham so it made sense for us to choose it as our next site when we were looking to diversify in 2017.

“What the Bierkeller Entertainment Complex does is something different from what is already available. Because we have three venues under the same roof, we have something for everyone, and we believe it will be an exciting addition to the Nottingham night life.”
