The Pub People Company is to open its second Six Barrel Drafthouse, a craft beer and draught ale pub offering food and coffee, in Nottingham city centre.
The refurbishment of the venue starts later in August, in collaboration with Star Pubs & Bars, and will reopen in mid-September, creating 10 new jobs.
The interior of Six Barrel Drafthouse will be industrial, with exposed brick walls, steel beams, wooden floors and industrial style lighting.
On the outside, there are plans to add a first-floor terrace overlooking the city, with space for 50, as well as a pergola at the front.
For the first time, the pub will serve food, opening at 8am for breakfast rolls and wraps. The menu for the rest of the day and evening will include burgers and wraps.
The pub will serve six craft beers and six cask ales on a rotational basis, including an ale from the local Pentrich brewery, premium lagers, and extensive gin and rum ranges.
During the week the venue will close at midnight, and it will stay open until 1am on Friday and Saturday nights.
The Pub People Company plans to open other Six Barrel Drafthouses in major towns and cities across the East Midlands over the next three years.
“We opened our first Six Barrel Drafthouse in Hockley in 2016 and it has proved very successful,” says Andy Crawford, operators director for The Pub People Company. “As a result we’re keen to roll it out where the local demographics and individual pubs lend themselves to the concept. We’ve got a good working relationship with Star Pubs & Bars, who are flexible and responsive, so intend taking on more sites with them over the next few years.”
