Birmingham is a haven for a darn good cocktail. Whether it’s a mighty mojito or something more extravagant, this list of the city’s hidden hideouts and most-loved bars will have you planning your next night out ASAP.
As you can probably guess from the name, cocktails at The Alchemist are all about alchemy, mixology and quite frankly, bizarreness – in a good way. The cocktails on offer here all have their unique traits; forget the mojito – here you’ll be blown away by the fizzing, smoking and bubbling traits their cocktails possess.
Happy hour happens every day at Turtle Bay; not that you need an excuse to visit this popular Caribbean restaurant. Using only the finest rum from across the world – including the lethal Wray & Nephew overproof rum – try these cocktails at your peril…
Another bar with a giveaway in its name; The Botanist blends a horticultural theme into its range of cocktails on offer. This quirky Temple Street venue carries its garden theme from the entrance through to its drinks which are served in watering cans and plant pots!
The Jekyll & Hyde is a Brum bar with many quirks. Not only does it have a gin parlour named after Dr. Jekyll upstairs, the bar also pays homage to Alice in Wonderland with its themed courtyard and main bar which is named after Dr. Hyde. With one of the largest varieties of gin on offer in the city and unique cocktails served in miniature bathtubs, you’d do well to check this bar out.
Speaking of gin, 40 St. Paul’s is a hidden gin emporium in the Jewellery Quarter. Situated just off the famous St. Paul’s Square, this quaint gin paradise offers the largest selection of gin in Birmingham, with table service to the 24 people the bar can cater for. If you love gin cocktails, this is the place for you – they’ve even got their own tonic water – The Hockley Tonic.
