Our Café Bar is a very important part of Nottingham Contemporary. We want our building to be a welcoming home for art and audiences, and the Café Bar is our kitchen, dining room, living room – and our garden, too.
Café.Bar.Contemporary is for everyone, from breakfast, through lunch, dinner and well into the evening. Families are most welcome – please ask for our special family offers – as are artists, business people, students, shoppers, the retired, our gallery goers – and everyone else.
Relax, linger, discuss, contemplate, meet - and eat and drink. Our menu is creative and affordable, sourced locally wherever possible. It offers international contemporary cuisine combined with classic British dishes. In the same vein we have continental beers, and local cask ales. We also offer fine wine, speciality teas and some serious coffee.
Our Café Bar is easy to find. Look out for S Mark Gubb’s neon sign above our Sun Terrace and walk down the new steps from Middle Hill. You can easily reach the Café Bar from our Main Entrance, too. Just follow the signs that lead down the stairs or take the lift to Level 1.
As you would expect, we have international art at Café.Bar.Contemporary. In fact we’re surrounded by Matthew Brannon’s.
New York artist Matthew Brannon has given us possibly the most stylish art café in the country. He has designed murals, a screen and curtains that suggest a 50s American advertising aesthetic – sharp, sleek and sexy - and the lifestyles it invoked. Coffee cups, typewriters, flight and train tickets are the props for a fictionally glamorous lifestyle. Brannon’s work turns the Café Bar customers into the protagonists of chic yet cynical short stories. Blank notepads suggest that they are about to be written by us all.
