Need a few more suggestions for the best Nottingham hookup apps and bars? Here are some spots that we love.
Pit & Pendulum is one of our absolute favourite Nottingham hookup bars and for good reason. This eerie pub is known for its dark Gothic-inspired atmosphere. In fact, the name of the pub was taken from an Edgar Allan Poe story. This is the perfect bar to check out if you love all things dark and spooky.
The crowd tends to be more into the Gothic scene. But that’s not the case for everyone who stops in here for a drink. The cocktails are superb and everyone is always having a great time. The dark atmosphere even seems romantic, in a way. So be sure to check this awesome bar out and leave feeling victorious.
Canalhouse is a unique pub experience that you’ll never forget. The bar is below the former Canal Museum and attracts people from all around.
Our favorite is the outdoor beer garden that’s covered so you can go there all year round. Tons of attractive men and women head out there to drink, mingle, laugh, and just enjoy life. So order up a delicious ale and start socializing.
Tilt is the perfect late-night spot if you’re into a more intimate setting. The bar is candle-lit and you can often catch a live blues show on most nights. Tilt is one of our top Nottingham hookup bars for having an actual conversation.
The bar also has a sample kitchen that serves up delicious dishes. The food and drinks menu is both inventive and fun to try. Be sure to ask the woman sitting next to you what she thinks of the music. You could be spending the night together before you know it.
These are the clubs we loved in Nottingham for a great night out.
Located at Lower Parliament St., Pryzm is the place to be at night.
We like this nightclub for a few reasons. First off, it’s always packed with young local girls which makes it the perfect place for weekend hookups in Nottingham. There are always tons of good-looking under-30 girls dancing around like young devils.
We also like the private rooms and the service there. It’s quite the place to take the girl for a quick chat, or maybe more before you move out. The staff is nice and laid-back, and the DJ was rocking it for the few nights we spent there.
If you want to spend the night with someone younger and cooler this is the spot to check out. Unlike the rest of Nottingham clubs, Stealth doesn’t give you the room to talk. It’s upbeat and crowded, you’re here to dance, and find cute hookups in Nottingham. So you’ll have to rely more on your moves on the stage (yes, it’s really that loud).
Tons of young Nottingham singles – many metal lovers too – flock to this place. It’s cozy, and the dress code is kind of flexible, but don’t let it fool you because the girls inside are some of Nottingham’s hottest.
For those who want to get laid in Nottingham during the day. These are our ideal places the start it off by meeting cute locals and asking for their numbers.
The Hockley Arts Club is a fantastic Nottingham hookup bar for many reasons. For starters, the venue is absolutely gorgeous. This is why it attracts artsy types of people, especially more interesting girls looking for similar guys who want to hook. Second, the place is specifically designed for socializing while eating and drinking. It has wide-open spaces, perfect for scoping out someone to flirt with.
The place is open until 3 a.m. every weekend. The cost of food and cocktails is reasonable, so you won’t have to worry about burning a hole in your pocket. Head out here on the weekends and ask the lovely lady next to you what drink she ordered as an opening.
Located in a hidden alleyway, The Specialty Coffee Shop is a great hidden hookup spot. You may not know this, but coffee shops are a great way to meet new potential partners. After all, people are less likely to be on edge outside of the club or bar scene. You’ll be surprised at the number of Nottingham hookups starting within coffee houses.
Grab a cup of their amazing coffee and one of their delicious open sandwiches. You’ll quickly see that the place is friendly with a mixed crowd. You’ll often see students reading here. Ask the cutie sitting next to you about their book and keep the ball rolling.
Download Tinder, add some cool photos, swipe right on hot chicks, chat with them, and voila, you're about to get laid in Nottingham.
As one of the most popular apps out there, Tinder is the app that just about everyone knows about. However, unlike many other Nottingham hookup apps, Tinder is all about the looks. In fact, most of the attention goes toward a small percentage of good-looking women and an even smaller percentage of men.
So unless you fancy yourself a Bradley Cooper look-alike, you may not find Tinder to be all that successful. The app is also starting to evolve into more of a casual dating scene. So unless you have the patience to curate a perfect profile you may want to try other options.
We've included all of our top recommendations for finding a hookup in Nottingham from above into the map below. This will help you properly plan which spots to try on any given night so you can try different options on the same night.
