About the Pub

Refurbished and renamed in June 2016, this large open plan sports bar was converted from a former department store. The bar is on the right hand side as you enter, with a raised stage area on the left. Live music is played every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evening. The central area is used as a dance floor on weekend evenings, when it can get very busy. The pub has a large screen for sport events, and numerous other TV screens on the walls and in the booths. It hosts regular ‘meet the celebrity’ events, when admission is by ticket only.

Historic Interest

Formerly known as Approach, Southbank City is in Nottingham City Council's Old Market Square Conservation Area. [Nottingham City Council; Bridge Ward / Nottingham South Parliamentary Constituency]
