What they say:

Smultronställe is a secretive cocktail den in the heart of Birmingham that looks to completely change the way we experience fresh flavours and concoctions. Meaning 'place of the wild strawberries', the selection of drinks and small plates at this 10-cover strong venue are produced using only the finest seasonal produce and ingredients. To ensure that guests completely immersive themselves here, the venue's range of quirky cocktails are only available as part of a taster menu, with a strict 'two drink minimum' rule in place. Purposely hiding its location, and with a menu that changes on a daily basis depending on what's available at the nearby farmers market, Smultronställe is certainly set to make a huge splash. 

What we say:

To really succeed in implanting a new concept within an already well-established nightlife scene, you have to completely commit everything to the cause. Mercifully, the experienced team behind Smultronställe have done just that. With guests only finding out the exact location after having first made a booking, and with room for only 10 guests sitting around the bar, it's the perfect micro-environment for sampling the very best seasonal treats available in Birmingham. This unique bar will definitely make noise with its unique offering. Expect to find us pushing and jostling in their queue, trying to get a priceless spot at the table when its opens its doors in November.
