They've never been fussy, your parents. They like the simple things in life and a good, authentic pub serving authentic pub grub. Whilst The Church Inn will satisfy their classic needs it will add that fun and vibrant twist that you've been trying to knock into them for a while now. From the rooftop terrace to authentic deep south grub, this is where your parents will meet a little Louisiana in the city.
So your mum and dad like the finer things in life do they? They're massive advocates of decadent international grub and they know a good cocktail when they taste one? Then Fumo is the restaurant bar in Birmingham for you. Serving a succelent selection of Venetian tapas an creative cocktails in an upmarket enviroment, Fumo will have your mum and dad patting you on the back in no time.
If your parents are just popping by for the afternoon and you're hankering for a bar in Birmingham where everyone can get their favourite tipple then why not try Cafe Opus. A charming and relaxed cafe bar overlooking Oozells Square, Cafe Opus is the perfect spot for that all important catch up with your favourite duo. From a glass of wine to a meer cup of coffee, everyone gets what they want at Cafe Opus.
Dinner, your parents love it, it's a fact; so let's get them schmoozing over a selection of fine grub in the city. Boasting slick speakeasy vibes and 1920s charm, Annexe is a nod to vintage-cafe's and burlesque parties with its mirrored walls and emerald flecks. And whilst Burlesque or a Manhattan themed dinner party might not be your thing, the edible European treats and cocktails found at Annexe truly will be.
If your rentals think that nothing beats a good old fashioned pub, then why not give one of the most attractive pubs in Birmingham a whirl. Brimming with character and original period features, The Barton Arms is a decadent testament to traditional pubs. Oh and here's a fact to impress your parents with, The Barton Arms was once visited by none other than Laurel and Hardy (they'll love that, absolutely love it).
We don't know about you, but a roast dinner with our parents boast some of our favourite memories (we can't say that the fond memory wasn't mainly because of the food though). So if your parents are also fans of a good slab of chicken or beef, with some cracking cask ales on the side that your father will surely love, then nip down to Harborne for a jaunt at The New Inn.
Looking to show your parents how you've gone up in the world? They've never seen Birmingham and fancy the best seat in the house? Then why not treat your nearest and dearest to a trip up to one of the best champagne bars in Birmingham. Boasting 360 degrees of the city skyline and some of the most renowned champagne in the business, your parents will leave Birmingham, suitably impressed.
