Island Bar

If you're looking for some light hearted frolics and some of the tastiest cocktails in Birmingham before your jaunt at the Alexandra Theatre, then nip right next door to cool and quirky tiki bar, Island Bar. A themed bar in Birmingham at the top of its tiki game, Island Bar is a unique blend of fun time party with cleverly curated cocktails. 

The Green Room

Known as something of a pre-theatre hot spot, The Green Room is a popular haunt for audience members, actors and actresses hoping to get a drink in before the show start. A cosy and humble lounge bar in Birmingham, The Green Room is a relaxing place for that one quickie before hilarity and fun ensues at the Hippodrome located directly opposite.

Only a stones throw away from the Hippodrome, there's a great spot for pre-theatre drinks just waiting to be discovered. Perch yourself on their patio tables for a spot of al fresco drinking and dining as Sobar makes for a great place to go people watching in Birmingham. And what with 2-4-1 cocktails every day until 9pm, you can get suitably giddy before the show begins.
