Details of Waterside Bar & Kitchen announced

Waterside Bar & Kitchen

Nottingham independent bar company Great Northern Group have announced their
new Waterside Bar + Kitchen concept due to open in mid-February. The new venue
will be part of the iconic Waterside Apartment complex overlooking Trent Bridge in
West Bridgford.

The Bar + Kitchen will explore new territory for GNG, blending elements from their
highly successful Copper and Refinery bars in a new all-day concept offering an
innovative menu and a much wider range of drinks with weekend DJs and special
dining events.

Waterside Bar & Kitchen

MD Dave Willans said “Deciding the name wasn’t the longest creative meeting we’ve
ever had and it makes sense to see ourselves as part of the entire redevelopment of
Trent Bridge. For the Kitchen we will be bringing a handful of our favourite dishes
and our reputation for great service over from our other venues, but Waterside is all
about appealing to a wider and more diverse group of people.”

We love to innovate with our bars and everyone is now much more thoughtful about food, ours will be exciting, fresh and primarily locally sourced. We want to embrace flavours from
around the globe, experiment with spices and seasoning and make eating at
Waterside something exceptional. We will of course have vegan options and will also
offer a wide range of breakfasts and some light lunches with faster service and very
simple pricing. The Waterside is also surrounded by professional sports clubs so will
be working closely with nutritionists to develop healthy eating options and will even
be able to host specialist dining nights in the new conservatory dining room.”

The Bar element will also see a few familiar brands but will mainly feature an array of
around 20 different gins and a huge range of high-quality spirits, cocktails,
Champagne and Prosecco. Dave added “Our beers will start at home in Nottingham
with Navigation Brewery and then we’ll go on our travels visiting Meantime, Fullers,
Peroni, Asahi, Pilsner Urquell and finish with 6 independent craft beers alongside 4
genuine cask ales from across the UK on draught. A big change for us will be
featuring a low alcohol beer on draught for the first time, we will have lots of ‘low and
no’ drinks options available and are now asking our suppliers for vegan-friendly

“We never take anything for granted and we’re always thankful to our customers for
continuing to visit us, I hope these new ideas will attract a whole new group of
people to Waterside.”
