Hockley (Nottingham)

Hockley (Nottingham)

Nottingham’s Answer to Soho.

Hockley is in the heart of Nottingham City Centre, Lace Market side within the Creative Quarter. This side of Nottingham is surrounded by boutique shops, popular restaurants, colourful street art and lots of awesome things to do.

Every year Hockley is host to many street fairs and festivals like the recent Light Show, UK Young Artists and Festival of Science to yearly events like Nottingham Pride and the Hockley Hustle. Creativity is nothing new to this part of the City from historical lace production to new art at the Nottingham Contemporary.

If you’re looking for culture, unforgettable activities, great food and a new wardrobe Hockley is the place to visit whether you’re travelling alone, as a couple, with family or friends. On a weekly basis we will be featuring some of the coolest things to do in Hockley, but why stop there? Make a night of it, or stay for the weekend at the Mercure Hotel Nottingham which is situated within the central hub of Hockley. Book your stay with Mercure Nottingham City Centre HERE and get a 10% discount off your stay!


A hidden gem waiting to be found. The experience starts with two little questions “are you lost and do you have an appointment” followed by entry past a lost property office (don’t forget your ticket), find the hidden door and enter Lost Property – a secret cocktail bar hidden in Hockley.

The devil is in the details. Unique interior, creative theming and fantastic atmosphere. There are stacks of suitcases, hanging objects and lost keys as well as chest of drawers doorways, a huge pence bar and actual lost but not forgotten property.

To be even more creative Lost Property has a huge secret cocktail menu to tantalise those taste buds.

If you’re visiting the City we recommend making an appointment with Lost Property.
