New Nottingham tapas indy Baresca now open

June 1, 2015

Jon Perkins, David Perkins and Sarah Newham’s new Nottingham city centre tapas venue Baresca opened on Monday, June 1. The Nottingham eaterie houses a 150-cover market cafe and tapas bar, plus a 65 cover cellar bar over three floors. Baresca serves exciting tapas menus reflecting the flavours of Spain and her near neighbours.


The ground floor interior combines a modern take on Barcelona’s street markets and the hustle and bustle of the nearby Old Town. Baresca’s subterranean cellar bar ‘Cellar9’ brings a touch of Spain’s bodega bars to Nottingham.


The industrial heritage of 9 Byard Lane has been honoured by touches of scaffolding, exposed piping and brickwork alongside a muted colour palette.


Baresca serves five menus: breakfast, menu del dia, main menu, Escabeanies menu and the Cellar9 menu. The food benefits from a completely re-fitted kitchen with an imposing chargrill oven and the restaurant’s own Italian curing cabinet, allowing the team to cure their own meats.


Jon Perkins, David Perkins and Sarah Newham also run Perkins Restaurant in Plumtree, Notts, and Escabeche in West Bridgford.
