In the 80s and 90s, it gained notoriety as a haven for heavy metal bands and the likes of Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian.
It was taken over a couple of years ago and underwent extensive renovations, turning the building into a more relaxed boozer. They still love getting loud and having a knees-up, but it’s a more chilled vibe under the new management.
There’s an on-site microbrewery too, creating and serving their own vegan ales in-house, alongside a range of rotating ales and craft beers, plus premium spirits, classic cocktails, and organic wines.

Bloody Knives, Bone Cult + Future Shinjuku at The Angel Microbrewery
Friday 19 October 2018 19:30 - 23:30
Bloody Knives are influenced by murder, horror, betrayal, trickery, violence, blood, sex, lust, greed, lies, deception, machine sounds, noises in the city, the obituary page, the things people hide from each other, the things people hide from themselves, violence humming at the surface and describe themselves as broken nihilistic abandon, passionate desperation, dense filth, electric disquiet, pummelling moments of intense beauty, atmospheric, icy and buzzing..
To me they're one of the most intense, vitriolic, brutal and arguably loudest trios I've ever witnessed. Think A Place To Bury Strangers, Nine Inch Nails, Cabaret Voltaire, Nothing, Einsturzende Neubaten, basically all your favourite punk bands rolled into one.
This is only their second ever tour of the UK so we urge you not to pass up on the opportunity to catch one of the most unforgettable live bands on the planet right now.
This Nottingham based duo fuse elements of industrial noise, techno, black metal and theatre into one visceral mix that's not for the faint hearted. Someone compared them to Slayer and Aphex Twin in one sentence which only tells half the story. Miss them at your peril!
Nottingham experimentalists who've been gradually honing their sound over the past couple of years towards the gargantuan beast standing before us today. Bands like Oceansize and Hawkwind spring to mind when asked to describe Future Shinjuku's sound. Loud, confrontational in places, and always left of centre. Which is just how we like it.

*** Please note we're starting half an hour earlier than previous months - doors open at 7, show starts at 7.30! More drinking time afterwards for all! ***
Never-seen-before... Never-to-be-seen-again!

TWO GUEST ACTS TO BE ANNOUNCED
*THE SMASH NIGHT SOCIAL CLUB*
Our in-house team is a revolving cast of longtime vets of the improv scene. This ragtag collection of comedy cowboys play fast ’n’ loose with the rules (and their metaphors), throw off the hand brake, and whisk you away to a place you never dreamed of.
Spinning your suggestions into scenes and stories, characters and creatures, myths and monsters! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you may even find yourself questioning everything you ever knew… Only one thing’s for certain when these guys hit the stage: you ain’t in Kansas any more, punk!
“totally bizarre, funny and enthralling!"
- Nottingham Evening Post
“A whirlwind of different locations and characters, with funny and gloriously bizarre scenarios rolling straight off of the tip of the performers’ tongues to come to life milliseconds after they’d been thought up.”
"The next generation of the Nottingham Comedy Scene"
- Notts Comedy Review

The Angel Microbrewery & I'm Not From London presents...
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
We've got big things planned for the Angel this Halloween!
? We're collaborating with I'm Not from London, that means loud live music from Bunker Pop (plus another soon to be announced mystery act!)
? BUNKER POP
💀 💀 💀 💀 💀
In their own words...
"Someone did say we're like the fall on a diet of chystal meth and sherbet dips but i can't remember who it was."
"A lass once kicked me up the arse at a gig and told me we sound like the music to super mario kart. I think we're quite political. Other people simply can't see it....it looks just like 5 blokes pissed up on stage. Personally i think we are a community help group for the socially inadequate....me getting my clothes off is ridiculous. But it helps others feel better about themselves...ha ha....Our album is out early 2019. Listen to it!"
? Halloween themed cocktail and shot deals.
? FILM SCREENING IN THE CAVES 🙈💀👻; we'll be screening The Ring in the caves...an unmissable experience! £7 a ticket, free popcorn. There are very limited spaces available, don't miss out! First come first served, tickets on the door.
? Fancy dress is strongly advised; don't be a spoil sport!
? Sponsored by Old J and Fireball.
Get yourselves down for a night of spook and a boogie, see ya there!!Full details
