Cafe Sobar, Nottingham
Cafe Sobar is the first alcohol-free bar, restaurant and venue in the East Midlands. The concept for Sobar came from the users of ‘Double Impact’ services who found that one of the main barriers recovering from drug and alcohol use was social isolation, and the lack of alcohol-free places to go to. Sobar’s vision is to provide Nottingham with an alternative to the mainstream restaurants and bars, and create a convivial and creative space open to everyone who wants the choice to socialise without a focus on alcohol.
Sobar is running mindfulness courses: http://www.sobar-nottingham.co.uk/our-events/
