The Bureau Bar

The Bureau Bar is located in the centre of Birmingham’s business district. Colmore Row connects the Jewellery Quarter with the city centre and the stunning architecture conjures up images of the city’s rich Victorian past.

Colmore Row Business District is a hive of activity for finance and legal teams, meaning the Bureau has a rather upmarket clientele during weekdays but becomes more cool bar culture at weekends when locals venture into town.

No. 110 Colmore Row is a picturesque and original piece of architecture created in 1902-4 by William Henman & Thomas Cooper for the Scottish Union and National Insurance Co. It has been built with Aberdeen granite (appropriately) and limestone, with inset bands of red brick & is currently a grade two listed building.

The main bar has booth seating with dark woods against swanky pinned leather to compliment the original Italian marble walls & an eight meter cocktail bar lit with vintage style pendent lights. A staircase leads down from the main bar to a basement lounge area serviced with it’s own bar & is ideal for private hire & events.

Menu options are varied at The Bureau. The restaurant offers unique and tasty treats with a fine reputation for beautifully presented cuisine from Bureau Deli Dogs to wraps, sandwiches, Caribbean style curry to Smoked Salmon cream cheese caviar and their famous buffets.

There are several ales on tap and the expertise of the staff mean cocktails are some of the very best in town!

The Bureau also offers a mezzanine level conference room, a second floor bar and a fab little roof top terrace with some interesting views across the city’s rooftops – open on sunny days and summer eves.

DJs such as Morais Vibes and Lee McBride play a mix of soul and dance music during weekends and special one off parties.
