With the busy flurry of commuters and shoppers that pass through New Street every day, it could be easy to miss the entrance to the Burlington Arcade. Nestled right in the heart of the city, this building has a secret. Those who venture to the lower ground floor will be transported into another world; a jigsaw of gothic arches, each leading to an assortment of cozy coves adorned with wrought iron and rich, dark wood decor. Despite its discreet location, the Bacchus bar, and its unrivaled range of cask ales, attract enough merrymakers to create a bustling atmosphere. This truly is a hidden gem, and not one to miss.
