Cocktail Making

Do you like Pina colada, and getting drunk in the rain? Well if not I’m sure there is a cocktail that will sweeten those taste buds, and make the rain feel like confetti from the sky. Cocktail making masterclass is perfect for breaking the ice with a group who aren’t familiar with each other, as well as getting everyone in the hen party spirit. Whilst learning about your fellow hens you will also learn to shake, muddle and stir.

Hints and tips

Every city is different and Nottingham is not alone with its own unique quirks and culture. Here are our top hints and tips to make sure your Nottingham hen party runs as smoothly as possible.


  • Cob – There is no such thing as a butty, teacake, bap, or roll here. A humble bread roll is called a cob.
  • Ey up mi duck – Essentially this means hello love.
  • T’ – Or more so the lack of the word ‘The’ for example people will say ‘going T’ pub’ and it’s perfectly normal and expectable.
  • Sen – I got this for my sen, this means for myself. It’s just an odd one but just go with it.
  • Code – Simply means cold.
  • Mardy – Just means grumpy.
  • Taaaaan – town, where everything is happening. 
nottingham's current hen party trends locations

Key Locations

Something I have found is that Nottingham has a habit of pronouncing places differently, but don’t worry taxis will still know where you are heading. Belvoir is said beaver and Nuthall is not said Nut-hall but Nuttle.

  • Hockley – Creative, quirky with independent shops, clubs and great food!
  • Lace Market – Lively bars and cocktail lounges. The home of Annie’s Burger shack, this is a hangover must!
  • Old Market Square – The centre of town, often buses and trams will stop here.
  • Victoria Centre – A big shopping centre that also has food places.
  • Corner house- Here there’s ample bars and restaurants as well as Curious Manor & Turtle Bay, great places for cocktails. Perfect to start a bar crawl!
