Tropical Bank Holiday at Island Bar More
Fri 25th May 2018 - Mon 28th May 2018


Mix a dash of exotic charm, Rock & Roll attitude and master mixologists and what do you get? Island Bar on Suffolk Street, Queensway of course. Tucked away from the bustle of Birmingham city centre, this independent and adventurous bar is perfect for those looking to take a step outside of their comfort zone.

This characterful bar boasts an upstairs downstairs split, letting you choose from an evening in their eclectic main party room, or the powerful pull of their exotic, Hawaiian themed Tiki Bar upstairs. A function room like no other, the Tiki Bar's 80 person capacity for those hiring out private functions will leave you with something to natter about come the end of the evening. 

Offering their very own cocktail making master-classes, Island's 'Shaken and Stirred' sessions will have you conjuring your very own colourful creations in no time. And what with being voted one of the top 50 bars in the UK by The Independent thanks to their quirky cocktails and gigantic selection of rum, Island Bar is Birmingham's celebrated holy ground for all you budding cocktail lovers out there.

Had a great night here and will definitely be going back - such a lovely place to socialise with friends and family. Lovely decor, well priced food and waitresses and waiters are always happy to help

Cheap and cheerful cocktail bar. Good fun night, but could do with a re-fresh.

Island bar is the ideal place to go with a crowd of friends especially if you're wanting quirky cocktails in a tiki bar setting. The array of cocktails really highlight Island bar as one of best places in Birmingham for cocktails.

Absolutely love this place. The DJs on a Friday and Saturday night are fantastic. There is a good range of cocktails (go easy on the Corpse Revivers!) and all at pocket friendly prices.

Cocktails here are great and fast and wont burn a hole in your pocket. Bar is close to Alexander Theatre and the venue itself is a bit tired but worth a visit. Atmosphere is great and staff friendly.

UHHHH the thought of the cocktails in this place alone make me drool, no doubt the best in the city. I'm so jealous that there aren't more bars like this in Birmingham but so so happy that we have one anyway!

Always busy here on a weekend! Probably the best fun time bar in Brum? Good crowd and I have to say the cocktails were amazing!! I did come here mid week once and it was disappointingly quiet...different atmosphere mid week to weekend for sure.
