• Cocktail bar Esquina at the Alea Nottingham

A slice of Spain in the city

Bar Esquina brings the colour, vibrancy and flavours of Spain to the heart of Nottingham

Set within the casino, but a stunning bar in its own right, there’s much to love about this place. The atmosphere is great, the music lively and there are plenty of comfortable leather-seated booths for you to relax in with friends and family.

Enjoy the typically Spanish rioja-red decor with wooden shutters letting in the daylight, and order from our extensive range of drinks – including Spanish favourites like Mahou beer and sangria.

Opening Times

8pm - 2am Tuesday to Thursday

8pm - 6am Friday to Saturday
