Meet Nottingham Forrest!
After several attempts to get in to this place, we finally were successful last night! We only waited about 20 minutes to get in, which was quick compared to the other times we attempted in get in and ended up leaving because it was too cold outside. The bar is a small and quaint little place that only has room for around 25 or so people at one time.
The drinks at this place are far from ordinary and the menu is similar to that of the Cheesecake Factory in length. You should visit their website just to see a few of the concoctions they create there http://www.nottingham-forrest.com First up, was Paul’s smokey vodka drink (which we don’t remember the name of)
All of the drinks there are about as pretty in presentation as they are tasty! You also get some snacks that are just okay. They included Olives, Nuts, Pizza Bread, Spinach Quiche, Hot crackers and some mystery meat that we both were afraid to try.
My second drink was called the Galaxy, however that translates into Firewater! It was so strong that Pauly gave me a high-five just for finishing it! The bartender asked me if it was ok, and I told him “Benzina?” which means gasoline in Italian – he laughed!!!!
All in all we had a great time and if you can get into Nottingham Forrest it is worth the experience. The crowd seemed to lessen around 8:00pm but that is not a promise. One last note about Nottingham, it was named World’s 50 Best Bars in 2012.
