If the world was a bit more magical your lost luggage would magically appear here. And you would be more than happy about losing it.
Lost Property is one of the two secret bars in 9 Carlton St, Hockley. Between Jazz Hairdresser and Bonzai Sushi, there’s a small door with a neon sign and that’s it.
After finding out how to open the wall of bags, you can either pick the door just in front of you which takes you to Lost Property or, you can go downstairs and if so, you’re up for some fun.
Next to the ladies’ toilets, there’s another secret passage to The Resistance, a hidden bar within a hidden bar, which back in August was transform into Dystopia, a 90’s dystopian take on alcohol.
Once you are done with the glowing drinks go back, in front of the stairs there’s a door with a keypad and that’s the new gin bar in town, Lost Caves.
You may, or may not know but Nottingham has the biggest circuit of underground caves and tunnels in the world. In fact, the entire city is connected by underground tunnels back from when Robin Wood was more than a Hollywood puppet.
And if like me, you’re not that interested in a half an hour tour inside beige tunnels sprinkled with historical facts, but you fancy a change of scenery this may just be the perfect in-between.
The menu is, like Lost Property, very on theme and full of options. On average a single is 6£ and a double 8£. Contrary to Lost Property the Lost Caves don’t open every day, so I would call them before planning an important date.
If by any chance you end up at Lost Property, feel free to share your pictures with me #honeymademedoit !!
