‘Tremendous sadness’ as economic pressures close popular city centre restaurant

A popular Nottingham city centre restaurant is closing – blaming economic pressures.

Paris Bar and Restaurant, in the city’s Lace Market area, says it is had made the move with “tremendous sadness”.

It’s sister venue, Petit Paris on Kings Walk in the city, closed just weeks ago.

In a statment on social media, Paris Bar and Restaurant said: “It is with tremendous sadness that we have had to close our doors for the last time.

“The widely-reported economic pressures that small, independent businesses are having to deal with during this prolonged cost of living crisis, have proved too much and the subsequent losses too great.

“A combination of hugely increased operating costs combined with a reduced number of diners has left the business, regretfully, with no other choice.

“We would like to thank our guests that supported us and would encourage them to continue to dine out in our city centre. Those restaurants that remain really do need you and we wish them success during these difficult times
We will be making contact with all upcoming guest reservations over the coming days.”
