Nottingham is known as one of the best places to find hookups in the UK. This is thanks to their eclectic nightlife which has adapted to make sure that there is something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you are a local looking for some new places to find hookups to enjoy or a visitor who wants to make sure that you have an epic night out, AdultHookup has got the Nottingham hookup guide for you to make sure that you don't miss out on everything this great city has to offer.
Nottingham's history as a city has been mainly focused on being creative, especially when it comes to their theatre and local music. When it came to nightlife, there were plenty of bars and pubs where bands could play and always people willing to listen. Bands like Ten Years After, Paper Lace and Tindersticks developed their talent in these venues and added to Nottingham's local music scene. For instance, Tindersticks was formed at the HIPPO which is now Coco Tang. In Nottingham, nightclubs often end up taking over each other, with popular 1980s and 1990s clubs being bought by a new owner and given a new name. This also kept the nightlife to certain areas of the city. The trend of pre-drinking at the bars and pubs also become popular during the 1980s and 1990s since the bars and pubs could only stay open until midnight. But new changes to licensing laws have turned Nottingham into a late-night party city, with bars staying open even later than before making it easier than ever to find after-hours hookups.
As with most cities, Nottingham's nightlife centre is also the near the centre of the city. Old Market Square is the heart of Nottingham's nightlife with both traditional and more modern bars and pubs taking over the area.Most of the gay bars and nightclubs are located off of Market Square, near to the city's other nightlife areas, making it easy to try out different places. Another area is Hockley which is located adjacent to The Lace Market and is home to many of Nottingham's hookup bars. For trendier nightlife options, head down to The Lace Market area just south of Hockley. This area feels like it's been untouched by time with red brick warehouses and red phone boxes along the streets. Many of these buildings have been converted into bars and restaurants that have quickly become nightlife hot spots. Lace Market is also home to stylish superclub, Pryzm. Even the universities are getting in on the nightlife. The NTU Student Union turns into a nightclub once the sun goes down and is the site of one of the most epic club nights in Nottingham, Climax. It's an absolute can't-miss event for the younger generation and makes a great place for hookups.
The best times to go out in Nottingham are Fridays or Saturdays. Licensing laws have changed in recent years which means that you have a choice to either go to a bar or nightclub for your last drink of the night. In Nottingham, you get the best of both worlds and most people tend to combine bars and nightclubs in the same night to make the most of their free time. If you are planning to do this, head out to a bar around 9 or 10 pm. Stay for a few drinks and then head out to one of the city's many nightclubs and some of the best Nottingham hookup bars and hookup clubs. If you are planning to try out one of Nottingham's nightclubs or superclubs, then the early you get there the better since there's so much to see.
