The Blessington Carriage, is a pub in Derby that was originally created by two gents from Nottingham by converting two terrace houses into a restaurant call the Ben Bowers.

Now reinvented The Bless, it has a strong indie vibe with regular bands and DJ’s, and was one of the first pubs in Derby to obtain a late night license, every day since being a key part of the Derby night life. The pub has 2 bars, 2 beer Gardens and a dancefloor for the weekends, so there’s plenty of room for everyone.
