East Midlands law firm scores top city centre location for new Nottingham self-service ale bar

Fraser Brown Solicitors has been working with the owners of the popular Another? Wine Bar to secure the premises license and lease of the new Tap House bar in Nottingham city centre.

The recently opened self-service ale bar brings four new jobs to the city and features 24 drink taps serving wine, frizzante, IPAs, Lagers, Porter stouts, as well as a food menu with Detroit style pizza.

This is the second self-service venue to be opened in the city centre by entrepreneur brothers and co-owners Sam and Tom Benjamin, with Tap House now situated at 10 Byard Lane; a prime busy and social location in the city.

The venue is housed in the former original Paul Smith retail store, in an iconic setting complete with a hidden outdoor space - ensuring an ideal drinking spot all year round.

As Tap House, the unit looks far from its Paul Smith retail days, stripped back to brick exposing the original windows, with a statement tiled beer wall for a unique and contrasting aesthetic.

Fraser Brown Solicitors acted on behalf of Sam and Tom Benjamin and their company Another Glass limited, with commercial property associate, Liam Wilkinson negotiating an agreement for a 10-year lease (conditional upon planning and the premise licence being granted), which has now been successfully granted, together with a licence to alter for the tenant’s fit out works. Joanne Soar assisted in successfully applying for a premises licence to serve alcohol at the property.

Liam Wilkinson, of Fraser Brown Solicitors said:

“We were pleased to act on behalf of our client to secure a lively prime location for the new Tap House bar in Nottingham city centre. Following the success of their first self-service bar, Another? Wine bar, we have no doubt that Tap House will follow in its fruitful footsteps having received such a positive reception already, and we wish it every success.”

Co-owner Tom Benjamin, said:

“We are proud to be opening our second self-service bar in the city centre and are confident that Tap House will cater to ale drinkers, the same way Another? does to wine lovers. The atmosphere in Tap House is exactly how we imagined, which makes for a great venture for an evening drink, leading into the weekends when we will reach full capacity. We look forward to being a new addition to Nottingham’s already vibrant bar scene and want to welcome everyone who walks through the door for a tipple of choice.”

Opening times for Tap House are Tuesday to Sunday 12 – 11 weekdays, 12 -12 Friday and Saturday, 12 – 10 Sunday.
