Beeston gets social as opening date is announced for new bar, kitchen, and arcade

Beeston's newest venue, The Beeston Social, has announced that it will open its doors on Saturday 25 June

The venue will be welcoming in guests from 8am for coffee and breakfast, until late into the evening with the bar’s enviable cocktail offering and extensive food menu.

The new bar is situated in the heart of Beeston under the new Arc Cinema and has been crafted by the creative minds behind Penny Lane, The Hockley Arts Club, and The Blind Rabbit.

As well as a diverse menu and selection of bespoke cocktails, beers, and wines, the venue has its own barista station, with beans sourced from Lee & Fletcher in Old Basford. There will also be fresh bread from artisan bakery The Welbeck Bakehouse, and brownies from The Beeston Brownie Company available to purchase.

Martyn Cooling, head of brand and marketing for the bar group, said:

“Beeston is one of Nottingham’s most exciting suburbs, with an already thriving social scene, so it was an obvious choice for our new venture outside of NG1.

“The Beeston Social’s interiors feature flashes of neon, plenty of greenery, and a Polaroid wall with pictures of Beeston locals, who we can’t wait to welcome into the new venue. The site has a beautiful mid-century, British-inspired design, full of colour and with lots of space. It’ll be a brilliant addition to the Beeston scene.”

Guests can expect familiar touches from Fletchergate Industries’ popular city centre venues, including iconic cocktails, pizzas, burgers, and arcade games, as well as plenty of features unique to The Beeston Social.

The menu will offer brunch classics and small plates as well as pop-up pizza and burger menus. The venue’s arcade area will be home to popular vintage games including a dance mat. There's something to suit all ages as the venue is open to under 18s until 6pm.

Upstairs, additional seating and a second bar offers a more intimate experience, with the mezzanine level also available for private hire.

The venue is the latest to open in The Beeston Square development, a multi-million pound site, masterminded by Broxtowe Borough Council, which is transforming Beeston town centre with a mix of leisure and entertainment venues.

Zulf Darr, deputy chief executive of Broxtowe Borough Council, said:

“We're delighted to welcome The Beeston Social to the town just in time for the summer months and can't wait to see people enjoying it. It's a fantastic addition to the Beeston Square development.”

Martyn added:

“We’re excited to be part of this new chapter for Beeston. Between The Beeston Social and the borough’s other great venues, we’re building a real destination for Nottingham residents outside of the city centre.”

“We’ve seen a real surge in people wanting to stay local and enjoy socialising close to home, so we’re pleased to be offering that for Beeston and its surrounding areas. We’ve created a venue that has something for everyone, and we hope it becomes a real community hub, somewhere for people to eat, drink, socialise, and play.”

The Beeston Social opens its doors to the public on Saturday 25th June at 8am.
