Our first visit to this unique venue in January in Nottingham was such a joyous uplifting experience. Fantastic ambience as we first entered. Great exotic food and wonderful jazz music from local and international artistes and musicians. Service was friendly and relaxed throughout the evening. We hope to return later in the year!
This place needs shielding!
Peggy’s Skylight puts Nottingham on the International Jazz Circuit with world class food and drinks. Looking forward to being there again soon.
Peggy’s is unique in the Midlands, and maybe the UK. Five nights a week of excellent quality jazz from international stars to local talent.
In just over a year, Peggy’s Skylight has become an iconic venue in Nottingham, loved by musicians and music lovers alike. Calling Peggy’s a Jazz club does not do it justice. Not only has it given a platform to amazing local, national and international musicians from across the spectrum of jazz, hip hop, blues, roots and world music to thrill us with their creativity and integrity, as a music lover in my 50s it’s such a delight to listen to all these jewels in a venue that offers the warmest hospitality and delicious food and drink.
And because Peggy’s offers its stage and fabulous sound system to young and up and coming local musicians to play in a truly professional environment it really is becoming the heart and soul of our local music scene. It’s almost impossible to imagine Nottingham without Peggy’s.
Peggy’s Skylight is one of very few dedicated Jazz venues outside of London and we have been truly blessed by its presence here in Nottingham for the last year and a half. Not only has Peggy’s been dedicated to showcasing local, national and international Jazz in all its myriad forms, it has also done it in some style, in a sublime setting, ideal for both audience and musicians to fully appreciate beautiful and inspirational music. We would be absolutely gutted if we were to lose ‘Our Peggy’s’!
In a short space of time, Peggy’s Skylight has become part of the city’s DNA – I have been amazed by how many people (way beyond my groups) know of it already and already love it or intend to go. It is a special place, where you feel immediately relaxed.
I took my young adults kids (21 & 18) to hear the Last Poets, and we had a great time. The food is truly wonderful, good value, and the staff are fun. All held together by Rachel & Paulus, who have in short created something rather special, that must not be lost at this time or any time in the future.
Peggy’s Skylight showed us a way to the stars and brought together a community to taste their ‘cornucopia of musical delights’ with original menu to match in a fabulous atmospheric venue affectionately dubbed ‘Ronnie Notts’. There would be a huge void in the E. Midlands musical scene if this breath of fresh air blew away to soon…Love and huge luck. We need you!
We love coming to Peggy’s and musicians love coming to Peggy’s. They tell us repeatedly that it is an amazing place to play. The Fabulous Dennis Rollins was overcome on his first appearance there telling us that Peggy’s was a special place. And we are delighted that he has been back! The music at Peggy’s is diverse and this in turn attracts people of all ages and from all parts of society come to Peggy’s. Nottingham has a proud heritage of top-quality music venues and now has a Jazz Club to rival any Capital City in the World.
The Spring of 2020 has been a heart-breaking time for so many people. Lockdown is alien to us, but does perhaps provide an opportunity to reflect on what is really important to us and what we want in our lives moving forward. Central to this for me, and I suspect many others, will be friends and community, music and creativity, and saving our planet. Peggy’s provides nourishment for our souls and we will need it dearly when we re-emerge.
Peggy’s is a special place. In such a short space of time Peggy’s has become central to Nottingham’s social life, and a leading venue on the UK’s Jazz circuit. It is foremost a place to come to listen to top quality Jazz and world music, but the delicious Persian food and stunning cocktails and wine all add to the overall “Peggy’s experience”.
It is always an extraordinary night at Peggy’s.
