About the Venue

Cafe Sobar has been developed by Double Impact, the Nottingham-based drug and alcohol recovery charity, with the support of a grant from the Big Lottery Fund.

The initial idea for Café Sobar came from the users of Double Impact services, who found that one of the main barriers to their recovery was social isolation and the lack of places to go that are alcohol-free, particularly in the evenings and at weekends. Our vision is to provide Nottingham with an alternative to the mainstream restaurants and bars, offering a convivial and creative space open to everyone who wants the choice to socialise without a focus on alcohol.

Cafe Sobar is a social enterprise, so all profits go directly back into the Double Impact charity, helping to fund the services needed to support people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. The bar also provides opportunities for people in recovery to gain valuable experience, training, volunteering and employment.
