What people say about us



    “The food, service, attention to detail was amazing"






    We held our Christmas Party at Bistro Live in the upstairs mezzanine and had this to ourselves with our own bar. The food, service, attention to detail was amazing and could not fault it. Highly recommend













    “New Year was brilliant - but they offer so much more - just ask !!”




    The second event was a private do to celebrate students leaving for Uni - we took over the venue and were treated exactly the same as any other evening - food brilliant, service brilliant and entertainment all through the night was the same standard as always - 


    If you are considering a party with a difference then Bistro Live is worth talking to - they took the whole thing out of my hands and all I did was turn up with 140 others and enjoy the evening as much as they did - and yes, without hesitation, I have booked for this year too!!









    "Staff were most definitely 5*"







    I'm gonna give a top rating for an excellent night of entertainment . Initially I thought the night was going to be too long however it was great fun and the staff were most definitely 5* quick efficient service they were happy to help and get involved with the dancing

theme ideas


We have our own in-house entertainments agency who can book anything from fire-eaters to James Bond lookalikes. We will help you every step of the way. Here's a few ideas from the past few years...



    glitz & glamour



    Our most recent event. The glitz and glamour event included a red carpet for all the attendees to walk down, a 'Bistro Live' walk of fame and possibly the best bit, a chocolate fountain! 








    In October we held a superb Halloween themed night where again the whole venue was dressed to scare! All the staff made a massive effort dressing up and the evening was brilliant.





    bIer keller



    A few years ago we hosted a Bier Keller night at our Nottingham Bistro Live. This included the venue themed superbly with all staff members dressed up. The event was a huge success.
