Cafe Sobar  is a social enterprise run by local drug and alcohol recovery charity, Double Impact, to help support their vital work with people whose lives have been devastated by addiction. 

It acts as a safe social space for people in recovery and their families and friends, and provides work placements for them to gain confidence and employment skills.  A refreshing alternative to mainstream bars and venues, our alcohol-free promise guarantees that 100% of the enjoyment you get from the superb food, drink and original entertainment comes without pressure or hangovers!

The building Café Sobar is housed in was originally the headquarters of the Nottingham Building Society, officially opened by Sir Joseph Stamp, the then Governor of The Bank of England, in 1929. Through working closely with the Nottingham Building Society, Framework Housing Association and local design company Constellations, we have been able to sympathetically transform the space while retaining a lot of its original features.

Every time you visit Café Sobar, as well as enjoying great food and drink in a warm, welcoming atmosphere, you’ll also be supporting a fantastic cause and helping local people to change their lives. Thank you for your support!
