Work to transform a Victorian Grade II listed building, formerly the offices of George Wigley & Sons silk merchants and importers on the city's Carlton Street into The Hockley Arts Club is currently underway with plans for the new venture to open its doors mid-November.
The Hockley Arts Club will include bar space on the ground floor with other spaces across the four floors dedicated to casual dining and drinking with an emphasis on unusual cocktails.
General manager Adam Sumner said: “I have seen The Hockley Arts Club evolve from its conception, with such interesting local history and stunning Victorian architecture, it is impossible not to be creatively inspired along the way, we are also ensuring we preserve the beautiful nature of this building.
“Nottingham is an incredibly culturally diverse and vibrant city, with a ton of choice, so you have to work really hard to bring something new to the scene in terms of food and taste that will excite people.
“Our chefs will be creating dishes that are designed to taste as good as they look. The menu will include a vast array of small plates designed for sharing & casual eating with the finest, fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
“The team are thrilled to be opening a building with such unique identity and with The Hockley Arts Club we aim to provide a lasting legacy that Nottingham will be proud of."
