Our top places to visit in Birmingham

Restrictions are finally lifting, we can see our friends, family, and even buy a pint.

Here in Brum we are fortunate enough to have a huge range of amazing venues, the majority now equipped for outdoor dining and so we thought why not take the opportunity to call out a couple of our favourites. The other great news, is that Birmingham City Council have approved a number of temporary outdoor licenses to enable city venues to open within the government guidelines. This will be a huge benefit for many businesses in Brum (and locals of course) and is just one more reason why we love this city!

(There are also talks about Victoria Square and creating a social area to host Live music, food stalls and seats for up to 120 people – Fingers crossed this goes through)!

Our Top Six Venues with outdoor areas

Pig and Tail – Jewellery Quarter


Located in the JQ The Pig and Tail serves South East Asian delicacies along with a great range of wines, cocktails and artisan coffee – it also has a really cute outdoor area!

The Old Crown – Digbeth


One of Birmingham’s oldest pubs, The Old Crown has an amazing Beer Garden with regular events, and great pub grub!

Cherry Reds – City Centre


Cherry Reds is situated on John Bright Street in town and has a lovely homely feel about it – perfect for a catch-up, bite to eat ….and slice of cake.

The Button Factory – Jewellery Quarter


With outdoor seating at the back, side, and on the roof terrace there are plenty of seats to go around. Lovely atmosphere and a little escape from the city centre.

The Canal House


There are some really nice venues along the canal, one being the Canal House. This place has loads of outdoor seating with a lovely beer garden overlooking the boats on the canal. Great for drinks, but they also do some tasty food too!

Wine Freedom – Digbeth


Another brilliant Digbeth venue that (as the name suggests) specialises in all types of wine and offers a range of organic bottles too (which apparently reduce the wine hangover!). The venue is a beautifully converted warehouse, lots of natural light and greenery.

Upcoming events also worth checking out, all outside and COVID safe….

Cheesefest – Seasonal Markets –The Bond Digbeth (17/18th April)


A personal favourite of mine, anything and everything cheese related (other street food available), live music and market stalls. Always worth a visit!

The Bond Closing Social – Seasonal Markets – The Bond Digbeth (1st – 2nd May)


If you are a regular around Digbeth, you will know The Bond well – It hosts amazing events including the odd wedding! Sadly it is closing for a refurb and the seasonal markets (such as the previously mentioned Cheesefest) will be finding a new home for a while! So I think it is only fair to finish this post off with ‘The Bond Closing Social’ – you will find the same community feel, live music, amazing street food, cocktail bars and market stalls at this event, go check it out!
