The Pitcher and Piano is preparing to unveil its new look to the public on Thursday after it closed its doors at the turn of the New Year.
Pitcher and Piano is unveiling its brand new look with a launch night tomorrow evening before opening to the general public on Thursday.
The quirky deconsecrated church has been undergoing a major renovation within a tight turnaround time, with its doors only officially closing on the 1 January.
General manager Rob Hattersley has been a central character in the redevelopment works.
He said: “We’ve got rid of the original bar that was to the left of the space, and built the new central island one to be able to serve more of our customers at one time.
“One complaint we used to get was that the bar was too loud and echoed with music and the buzz of conversation in the evenings.
“Of course with the bar being a deconsecrated church the problem is hard to avoid altogether, but we’ve tried to make the space more intimate and less cavernous, and the island bar definitely helps to break it up.”
The Lace Market bar is hugely popular in Nottingham, with its impressive staircase structures and authentic stained glass windows.
The opening party tomorrow evening is a ticketed event, with coveted places still being available through Twitter and Facebook competitions.
New furniture has also been brought in as well as additions to its already vast food menu.
Mr Hattersley added: “We just wanted to freshen the place up and make it a warmer venue to everyone, whether it’s for a quick weekday lunch or cosy evening drinks.”
