The Cosy Club Launch Night - Derby.

If you weren't aware that there was a Cosy Club opening in Derby then where have you been!?
Located in the old Royal Hotel (to me, that's opposite Primark & next to The Book Cafe), they opened their doors for the first time on Friday evening and I was lucky enough to be invited along to see what they're all about.

Despite having over 10 venues nationwide, I've never been to or seen a Cosy Club before so had absolutely no idea what to expect, however, from the name, I was expecting to feel right at home. 

Upon arrival, I was greeted at the front door and lead to the top of the winding staircase (there's also a lift too for those less able to climb that far).

Once at the top, a waitress in a pretty little tea dress gave me a tour of the place. I was so surprised at how big it was. It just kept going and going!

The first area you come to is the bar. This is an area to relax, meet with friends and all that jazz. I made my way to the front and ordered a Sherbet Lemonade. It was kind of like a cloudy lemonade really. After ordering my drink, I carried on exploring.

Everyone is welcome here at the Cosy Club. There's even a selection of games for the kiddies to play - or the adults if you feel like it!

Following the building around, you end up in the dining area. There are high ceilings, huge chandeliers, lots of natural light and it's packed full of history. It's so lovely to see so many original features still on show to enjoy. I'm not sure what this room was used for originally, but it certainly has some kind of elegant/ ballroom feel to it.

There are so many tables in here, I think overall it seats about 120 guests. Plus, there is a private dining area to the rear which is perfect for parties.
One thing that I noticed was that although there are lots of tables and some may say that it's cramped, you still feel like you have your own space. 
I took a seat (on my own - I know it's sad) and waited for my tapas to arrive.

The idea was to show a selection of the foods available, so I was served Patatas Bravas with Aioli, Beef & Pork Meatballs in a Tomato Red Wine Sauce and Hummus along with a few slices of fresh Ciabatta. All were delicious, my favourite was the Hummus. I found the Patatas slightly spicy but I am a wimp with heat.
Tapas is part of the main menu at The Cosy Club with 3 dishes being £11.95.

As well as Tapas, they also serve brunch from 9am, Paninis, Sandwiches and Burgers along with a selection of Main Courses and some tasty sounding Desserts too. If you struggle with dietary requirements, the Cosy Club have your back with menus devoted to both Vegan and Gluten Free diners. Hoorah! 

Big congrats and thanks to all of the team at The Cosy Club for a fantastic night. I couldn't stay too long unfortunately but I plan to return very soon! 
If you're in Derby and looking for somewhere new to eat, The Cosy Club is a must. There's a chilled informal vibe, friendly staff and like I mentioned, all are welcome whether it's a meal with the kids or cocktails with the girls.
