Nottingham Hen Party Guide
Affectionately known as the ‘Queen of the Midlands’, Nottingham is a proud but friendly city. With a strong historical and cultural past – yes, we’re talking about Robin Hood – Nottingham is a top destination for culture vultures but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great party town too. Spend your days exploring its history and the night hunting out the best cocktails and dance floors Nottingham has to offer.
Nottingham hen party guide – Shopping
With two massive shopping centres and a selection of high streets and arcades, there’s plenty to keep even the keenest shoppers entertained. In the Victoria Centre alone you’ll find over 120 of your favourite high street brands. More alternative hens are catered for too with stores like Void and Blue Banana stocking a range or alternative and retro clothing and accessories for men and women.
Nottingham hen party guide – Eating Out
Nottingham celebrates diversity in their food with nearly every culture or craving catered for. The very best of Nottingham food can be found at La Rock which focuses on the best ingredients in their British and French food which is always beautifully deconstructed and presented. For something a little less serious you can’t ask for more than Spanky Van Dyke’s. With a name like that you know you’re guaranteed fun but you might be surprised to find the food is just as good and reasonably priced. With regular gigs and vintage days it’s the perfect destination for the alternative bride. Finally, for vintage fans, the adorable White Rabbit Tea House is not to be missed.
Nottingham hen party guide – Entertainment
Nottingham is home to several theatres offering everything from the cutting edge and experimental right through to touring productions of your favourite West End shows. The Royal Centre is the place to go for popular plays, musicals and operas while the Nottingham Playhouse regularly presents ultra-modern contemporary pieces. Movie buffs have an equally impressive choice with two big multiplex cinemas for all the hottest blockbusters. Nottingham is also home to two smaller independent cinemas – the Savoy Cinema and the Broadway Media Centre – which regularly screen indie and world cinema.
Nottingham hen party guide – Nightlife
Bad Papa’s Tikki Shack is about content just as much as style. With a retro, Hawaiian theme and delicious cocktails, Tikki Shack is the perfect place to start your night. If you like the idea of a retro theme then kick off your party before you’ve even reached the bars with a Polestar’s 80s Dance Class. Once you’ve mastered the ultimately 80s dance moves you can show them off at the local retro club: Revival. With one door for 70s and 80s fans, and another for 90s and 00s, there’s something to suit every taste and every age. If that doesn’t quite appeal and you’d rather something a little more glamorous, get on the guest list for BedClub at Gatecrasher to party in exclusive surroundings with a very select clientele.
