The Island Quarter

The Island Quarter is an exciting mixed-use development and unique, not just for Nottingham but for the Midlands and the UK. Hailed as one of the UK’s largest regeneration projects, the 36-acre site will be totally transformed to bring new homes, grade A office space, creative spaces, a lifestyle hotel, PRS apartments and co-working spaces. It will also bring retail units, extensive green space, vibrant community and event space as well as student accommodation to the city. The development is a vital part of the regeneration of Nottingham’s Southside and the developers are working closely with Nottingham City Council to align with its vision for the city.

Bar, restaurant and entertainment venue Binks Yard and finer dining restaurant Cleaver & Wake – complete with wedding and private event space, Upstairs at Cleaver & Wake – mark the first venues to open at The Island Quarter. With chef patron Laurence Henry at the helm, Cleaver & Wake offers an elevated dining experience with an emphasis on quality seasonal British ingredients. Its artfully crafted cocktail menu features a range of premium tipples and interesting pairings developed by the venue’s team of experienced mixologists.

Meanwhile, based by the canal side, Binks Yard is an all-day food, drinks and entertainment destination offering a large selection of craft beer and cocktails as well as wood-fired pizzas and tacos. Its outdoor plaza boasts the East Midlands’ largest outdoor screen as well as a state-of-the-art stage and sound system, a drinks kiosk and a meat smoker. The venue offers a fantastic selection of entertainment each week including vinyl soul nights, weekly Tuesday taco nights, live performances on the stage and more.
