Nottingham building to become new bar and music venue

Das Kino Nottingham

Audacity Leisure is breathing new life into one of Nottingham’s landmark buildings by creating a new bar and live music venue.

It plans to open Das Kino in September in what was once The Old Vic in Fletcher Gate, offering premium cocktails, handmade pizza, ping-pong and live music, all under one roof.

Drawing influences from iconic German cinema, the venue will feature reclaimed wood flooring sourced from a local church, bespoke industrial lighting, cinema seating and classic pop art. It will be spread over 3000 square feet and boast five ping-pong tables and two large bars.

Adam Sumner, general manager at Das Kino, said: “Das Kino has been created by a group of local independent operators keen to offer Nottingham something different.

“You’ll be able to enjoy casual after-work drinks or a real ale in a beautiful, chilled-out environment or, if you’re feeling a bit more energetic, you can try your hand at one of our ping-pong tables. The idea is for our customers to enjoy a relaxed and fun night out.

“The food on offer will be created on site and, if you’re having a few drinks with friends in the early hours and you get peckish, you’ll still be able to grab a slice of pizza with us.

“We’ve even got an old 1950s photo booth if you need help remembering what happened the day after.”

Das Kino opens on September 13. For more information visit Das Kino on Facebook or follow them on Twitter at @daskinonotts.
