The Blind Rabbit opens in Nottingham

The Blind Rabbit, a New York inspired bar, grill and live entertainment space, has officially opened in Nottingham.

The bar took over the space of the Belgian restaurant Belgo in June 2019, and has since reopened as a burger joint and live entertainment venue.

The 5,000 sq ft, three-storey, Victorian red brick building was designed by architect William Arthur Heazell in 1875 for W Cotton as offices and warehouse.

Inside, however, it has been modernised with a street-art-inspired vibe, flashes of neon and bold coloured textures that ties in with the brand’s style.

The bar also offers specialty cocktails alongside old school American bar games and live entertainment.

Michael Johnson, operations director at The Blind Rabbit, said: “We are thrilled with the success of the launch of our newest venture in Nottingham’s Lace Market.

“The Blind Rabbit is quickly becoming the go-to-place for everyone and features something new in a city that already offers so much variety. Outstanding food, drinks and service within the most casual of surroundings is what we’ve strived to deliver in our first month, with unique cocktails alongside Nottingham’s best burgers to complement that atmosphere.”

Martyn Cooling, brand and marketing manager, added: “We’re constantly working to improve everything we do, whether it be bringing bold new design to the city or challenging ourselves with exciting new food and drink offerings.

“We want our venues to be an experience for everyone who walks through the door. The Blind Rabbit delivers something entirely new for Nottingham, with its bold street art and graffiti walls to offer an iconic venue that the city can be proud of.”
