Café Sobar is one of a kind: a vibrant and welcoming alcohol-free environment offering something for everyone. Named as one of Nottingham's Top 10 bars by The Culture Trip we are a refreshing alternative to mainstream bars and restaurants in the centre of Nottingham.

Since opening in January 2014 Café Sobar has provided an important stepping stone between treatment services and independent living through a range of initiatives and events. It has become an established venue of choice for a wide range of community groups, and for the discerning customer who simply wants excellent food and beverage in an amazing venue. 

The Marketing and Events Coordinator will be responsible for developing the growth of our customer base and the range and regularity of our social events which are primarily aimed at providing an alternative for people who want to socialise in an alcohol free environment.

This growth in revenue and activity will be achieved through the implementation of a clear marketing plan for Café Sobar to expand the customer base and range of events.  This will include building effective relationships with our existing beneficiaries’ community organisations and local businesses. Our aim is increase the numbers of people and groups using and visiting the venue and the delivery of an exciting and viable calendar of events.

This is an excellent opportunity to strengthen Café Sobar’s reputation as Nottingham’s recovery hub, a destination for different community groups, and a high quality establishment enjoyed by the general public.  Experience of organising, marketing and delivering events is essential.
