A great buzzing place on a Saturday night and very good service but the meat in all our dishes should have been better quality and better cooked.

Fantastic place for cocktails. The staff are friendly and attentive, the atmosphere is fab and the music is fun. One of our party wasn’t drinking for January and was made a delicious non-alcoholic version of his favourite cocktail. A brilliant experience. Well done and thank you to the Pelican Club team!

This was our 3rd visit to this wonderful little jazz club, and its consistency in being amazing has earnt a 5 star trip advisor!

Firstly thank you Dan (owner) for always being jolly and professional even tho your extremely busy, you put all your guests 1st and attend to their every need both efficiently.

Upon arrival you have your coat taken, then shown to a wonderful cocktail bar, excellent atmosphere while sipping well made decent priced cocktails, before being shown to your tabel, every seat enables you to see the band so where you sit doesn't matter.

Food melts in your mouth, fine wine list!

This place is an excellent little gem hidden in the heart of Nottingham, close to other late bars if you want to dance the night away.
Thanks to all the team for a magical evening time and time again!!

Met as we walked in by the lovely and polite waitress, had a choice of seats to pick from after booking earlier in the week. We decided to sit by the window, drinks ordered wife very happy to find out it was happy hour on the cocktails, i had a bottle of Moretti.
We looked through the menus and then the waitress returned to say they had a specials board, so we both decided on the Taglatelli Ragu, after first chosing the Piatto Misto for 2 for £12.75.
The piatto Misto was plentiful, with lots of flavour.
Waited around 15 mins for the Ragu, which was presented lovely and tasted fantastic.
We were both very impressed with the atmosphere, with the chilling jazz music in the background and the standard of the food on offer.

Came here at half nine on Saturday evening. The staff and welcoming, kind, friendly. The special was Umbrian beef ragu which was totally inedible for me from being far too salty. Our waitress kindly offered to have it remade (I guess with less salty pasta) but I still couldn’t eat it.

My friend had baked Tomino which was also far too salty to be edible.

The music/ performer was pretty poor but I guess that’s just a personal taste.

On the plus side desserts were delicious.

Service was fine and I might return for a drink.
