Whether you’re in town visiting or you are a local looking for somewhere different to hang out this weekend, Birmingham has plenty to offer when it comes to fun nights out. From big baselines to fancy eateries, revelers have many options regarding where to go and what to do. The only difficulty will be making sure that you have a long enough lie-in the next morning! Go all out on your next Saturday night by heading out on the town in Birmingham.
Every night out needs to start with a good meal, and Bonehead is one of the best places to do it. If you thought that gourmet and fried chicken could never be in the same sentence, Bonehead is here to prove you wrong. Ok, so the interior is a little dingy, but the food is unparalleled, and you’ll struggle to refrain from ordering seconds.
One of the best places to get vegan and vegetarian food, Bistro 1847 combines mouthwatering flavors, stunning presentation and inventive combinations for a vegetarian experience that’s hard to forget. Located right on the doorstep of the cathedral, galleries and Snow Hill railway station, it is perfect for grabbing a bite to eat before heading to one of the bars in town.
For a glamorous dining experience, you can’t beat Gaucho, a sensational upmarket Argentinian steak house. Ok, so it might be part of a chain, but the top-notch experience you get here will make you feel as though you are in the most exclusive restaurant in town. The decadent surroundings are a treat for the senses, and that’s even before you order your meal.
The Night Owl
For those evenings when you want to relax into a retro vibe and get your groove on to tunes from eras gone by, then The Night Owl is the place to do it. The sprung wooden dance floor is perfect for showing off your moves to everything from disco and funk to Brit-pop and reggae, and the vibrant interior is a fantastic backdrop for some Instagram-worthy shots. There are also regular live music and themed nights here, so check out their Facebook page before you head down to see if there’s anything happening.
Bierkeller Bavarian Bar
One of the unique drinking spots in town, the Bierkeller Bavarian Bar is perfect for those evenings when you wish you were at Oktoberfest. With some of the top German beers served ice cold in two-pint steins, it is easy to get pretty carried away here! Sure, it’s a chain, but the traditional outfits and long tables give an authentic Bavarian feel, and the Oompah band gets the entire room dancing in no time at all.
You can’t go wrong with a trip to Birmingham’s super club PRYZM. Featuring three floors of music, four cutting-edge club rooms, a VIP luxury lounge and exciting lineups, this is a night you won’t forget anytime soon. Hire a VIP dance pod on the dance floor so that you have a private area for your crew while staying a part of the action. Check out the entertainers on stilts and order a celebration pack for those nights when you’re feeling in the mood for a party!
To finish your evening off in style, head to the Broadway Casino, renowned for its beautiful poker rooms and top-class Italian restaurant. But don’t worry, even though this place is super classy, you don’t need to be a pro to play. After all, one of the best things about poker is that you can play absolutely terribly and still win. Novices and old hats alike will love the interior and service at this establishment but remember to keep some money back for the taxi home afterward!
With so much to see and do on a night out in Birmingham, the only trouble you’ll have is deciding where to go first!
