Lost Property Bar

Curiously located at number 7 1/2 Carlton Street, Lost Property is a seriously 'secret bar' hidden in the caves under the Nottingham's oldest hotel - and even once you've found the entrance you won't necessarily know how to get in.

Once you do make it inside you'll find a bar, part speakeasy, part lost property office. Decorated with parrots, glitterballs, more than 1,000 keys, 150 lost suitcases, a countertop bar made out of pennies and VIPee bathroom.

Lost Property serves the Curious menu plus a selection of themed cocktails, tying in with some of the hotel's famous guests. What the Dickens is a tribute to the Oliver Twist author, who hired the placed for six months to recreate his plays. The original signed bill is still at the hotel. Jimmy Nail, a long-term guest when filming Auf Wiedersehen Pet in the city, is the inspiration for another drink.
