Juni Nottingham – launch night

We were recently invited to the launch night of Juni Nottingham. A new gin bar based in Nottingham city centre. I’m a massive fan of gin, so jumped at the opportunity to attend. Juni offers around 20 different gins and has three of its own signature gins – a dry gin, a plum and raspberry gin and a juniper cask aged gin. They also offer a selection of gin cocktails.

There’s a really good selection…

Sushi Mania – Nottingham

Sushi Mania, in Nottingham, is a relatively new addition to Nottingham. A few weeks ago we decided to try it out with the kids. Simon and Oscar both love sushi and recently the twins have started to try it, so we thought we’d see what Sushi Mania had to offer. Here’s what we thought… When we first entered the restaurant, I was really impressed with the decor, which is as expected Japanese themed, although definitely on a more luxury level. On first impressions, I was a little worried that it might not be that child-friendly, although I really shouldn’t have…
