Located in the heart of Hockley, the venue was built in the 1600s and has previously housed a chapel and a brothel. In the 1980’s and 1990’s it gained notoriety as a haven for heavy metal bands and the likes of Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian.
It was taken over last year and underwent extensive renovations, turning the building into a more relaxed boozer. They still love getting loud and having a wicked time, but it’s a more chilled vibe under the new management.
It’s currently the only microbrewery in the city centre, brewing and serving their own (vegan) ales, in-house, alongside a range of rotating locally brewed ales and craft beers, plus premium spirits, classic cocktails, and organic wines.
During Craft Beer Week, The Angel is collaborating with Nottingham’s legendary Abstract Jungle Brewery to create a one-off ale. They will also have a tap takeover with a range of craft beer favourites. For those who want to make sure they taste them all, there’ll be a taster deal and food pairing. All that plus live music to swill it all down.
