Bars in Gay Village

Renowned as one of the most busy and bustling weekend areas in the city, Hurst Street aka. Gay Village is a hot spot for fun time party bars in Birmingham. Having seen a government encouraged burst of improvement back in 2009, Hurst Street bars made way for better outdoor patio seating areas and decorative lanterns, turning Gay Village into the vibrant and happening street that it is today. From cheap bars to dapper restaurants, check out our recommendations for the best bars in Birmingham's Gay Village.

Bar Jester

It's no wonder the party never seems to stop at Bar Jester, what with their late night opening hours keeping them up until a rowdy 4am. We doubt they'll be slowing down though thanks to enticing retro evenings. Friday nights in Birmingham start at 1am at Bar Jester with DJ's spinning the best in gay disco and energised 80s antics. 

The Loft Lounge

Great for both rowdy nights out or a date night in Birmingham, The Loft Lounge is a multi-purpose venue with fans in both Birmingham's gay and straight scenes. From DJ nights to champagne afternoon tea, the transition from day to evening in The Loft Lounge is a smooth and sophisticated in the velvet textures of the bars decor. 

Known for being one of Hurst Street's friendliest boozers, Equator underwent refurbishment back in 2012 turning it into one of the Gay Village's trendiest bars. Sleek white topped bars and mirrored panels in abundance make this bar feel bigger than its quaint size may suggest. Sit out on their patio seating for a real insight and feel for one of Birmingham's busiest evening spots.
