Nottingham’s first self-service wine bar sold over 1200 glasses during its opening weekend.
Another? opened its doors on Friday, October 27 with 32 varieties of wine, sparkling wine and champagne for visitors to choose from.
Sam Benjamin, Owner, said: “I was rushed off my feet re-stocking the wine all weekend; it was so busy I was worried we might run out.”
The 60-seater bar, located in Trinity Square, lets customers pour themselves a 25ml sample, a 125ml small glass or a 175ml large glass of wine costing anything from 60p up to £12 a glass.
Customer, Kara O’neill, 26, of Bowers Avenue said: “I love the whole concept of serving yourself, and I can’t think of anywhere in Nottingham with a better selection of wine; I would definitely recommend it to wine lovers.”
Kerian Grant, Clinical Specialist at Nottingham Recovery Network, has concerns about the all-new wine bar.
He said: “Being self-service gives people the opportunity to drink as much as they want, which is a worry especially if more bars like this were to open in the city.
“We just want people to know their limits and to drink responsibly, and while a help-yourself wine bar may seem like a good idea to some people, it’s an avenue to alcoholism for others.”
Set over two floors above Green Healthcare, Another? will be extended to include a rooftop terrace and prosecco garden by summer 2018.
