If you’re planning a night out in West Bridgford then you’ll no doubt be heading to Fire & Ice.  Recently refurbished and looking ultra sleek, the bar now offers over 40 contemporary and classic cocktails with extended happy hours. To top this, they have DJ’s on Friday & Saturday nights and live music on Thursdays.

The restaurant features a wood-fired oven and exposed brickwork with wooden floors and high ceiling providing a blend of modern and traditional decor.  There’s a general bustle of chatter and music which helps the cosy, relaxing yet vibrant atmosphere.The layout means you can see the chefs at work and we found the service excellent and the food good value.  We’d only gone in for a drink but smelt the food from the restaurant and decided to stay for a meal.

The bar area is stylish and comfortable with large sofas and subtle lighting.  Outside is a tastefully designed seating area for the warmer evenings, or smokers.  The weekends can get very lively as the bar is just a few minutes walk from town.

You’ll know Saltwater in the Cornerhouse for the terrace, cocktails, great food and laid back vibe among other things, but how much do you know about the music?

Saltwater covers a wide range of musical bases, really something for most tastes. Highly respected residents such as Paul Wain and Rick Donohue, have been spinning records longer than we've been allowed to drink from glasses. Guests brought to the venue for Myhouse-Yourhouse events and Sunday and weeknight DJs including Fran Green, Adam Jay and Ed Challands ensure that jazz, hip-hop, indie, funk, soul, disco, brokenbeat, nujazz and deep house form the key component of Saltwater's soundtrack. Between everyone, the best non-commercial selections from the past 50 years of music are represented amongst the rich pickings found amongst today's latest releases. Don't come expecting to hear tunes you know, but do come with ears open to hour upon hour, day upon day of lovingly selected and sensitively played music.

Past residents and special guests have included: Bent, Charles Webster, Atjazz, Chris Duckenfield [Swag], Linkwood [Prime Numbers], Move D [Warp], Crazy P, Red Rack'em, Schmoov! and Demarkus Lewis.
