The Lost Caves are a subterranean pub, but one which is actually quite hard to find. It is somewhere in the vicinity of the George Hotel. The pub is actually named Lost Property or simply LOST?. Located beneath The Curious Tavern, you have to find the narrow alleyway with the Mona Lisa and the wall of suitcases. Unfortunately you have to solve this riddle yourself, its part of the experience.

What we can explain though, is that there is a subterranean part to the riddle. The Lost Caves are one of Nottingham's unique drinking experiences. And they are signposted, from the Lost Property, so if you found one you found both. The bar features a large selection of Gins and Rums. The Drum & Basement is a 90s themed music cellar with neon lights, 90's VCR's, cassette tapes and posters of your favourite movies from that time. For both we recommend an additional jacket.
