Nottingham city centre bar in sudden closure

The Bear & Lace

Nottingham city centre bar and restaurant, the Bear & Lace, has closed suddenly, leaving at least one local business having to rearrange their Christmas drinks party.

The Bear & Lace, on Maid Marian Way in the city centre was set up by Eddie Rathour in 2015, but appears to have closed for good after one Nottingham firm contacted to rearrange a function they had booked there.

The company said: “We would like to make you aware of a change of venue for Thursday evening.

“Unfortunately The Bear and Lace has gone out of business.”

Reports in the Nottingham Post suggest that the bar has been sold to a “major UK operator”.

We have tried to contact the owners of the Bear & Lace, but they have yet to respond.
