This week we asked Jim Waters, Head of Exhibitions at Nottingham Contemporary, what his favourite places and recommendations in Nottinghamshire were:
“Discover the city’s rich visual art culture by starting at Nottingham Contemporary, the take a short walk to Nottingham Castle (where you also get fantastic views of the city) followed by a tram ride out to New Art Exchange.
Iberico restaurant world tapas, never disappointing and great for lunch. Try Hart’s for a special occasion or for something more simple Carluccio’s, which also has a deli selling their fantastic wild boar sauce.
Tilt Bar and Blues Club, perfect for unwinding with a cocktail during happy hour, try the Bloody Mary with Stilton for a surprising twist.
Nottingham Contemporary bar which hosts the city’s own award winning beers from Castle Rock brewery – as does the Kean’s Head, a friendly traditional pub in the Lace Market.
For shopping take a stroll round Paul Smith’s flagship shop, even if you aren’t buying you can enjoy the grandeur of this three storey Georgian townhouse.”
