Fiercely-independent Bar and Restaurant specialising in cocktails and meatballs.

It’s the people who make the place. It’s something a combined 35 years’ worth of experience in the hospitality industry has taught us. The goal has always been fairly simple: create a great place in the city for great people to gather in. So this is what we’ve set out to do.

But who is we? We are a group of friends with personal backgrounds spanning across the Netherlands, West Yorkshire, Wales and the Midlands.

We are Lau and Catherine Wensink, Scott Atchison, Joe Hague, Will Chambers and Cory Chadwick, and we’ve found our home in Nottingham.

More specifically, we’ve found our home at 31 Goose Gate, Hockley, Nottingham.

We love Nottingham. There’s something about this city which has managed to keep us here long after jobs have run their course or degrees have been completed. But we can’t help feel like there is something the city’s nightlife is crying out for, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to provide it.

We’ve boiled our vision down to this: great drinks, great food, great music at a clear and fair price in an environment which forever stays on the comfortable side of cool.

We found ourselves a home in a place which formerly belonged to TS Kaye and Sons Toolmakers and Merchants.

In our first visit to the property, we fell in love. In our second visit to the property we noticed something extra-special: an original stained-glass window which proudly displayed “31 KAYES”.

A few meetings later, and we had our name: a NYC-inspired, modern take on the original.

Welcome to 31K.
