What they say:
Replenished by infamous London restaurant brand Searcys as 'a contemporary take on a traditional brasserie', The Balcony at Selfridges is a humble hubbub of classic interiors, sandy tones and glimmery golden wall pinnings with dining area's and loungers to boot. Set to serve indulgent British brasserie classics with Gordon Ramsay chum Arnaud Stevens behind the menu, The Balcony is hoping to be Selfridges' most affluent post shopping destination. From classic cocktails and a champagne bar with exclusive, international tipples to boot, The Balcony know their way around a bottle of bubbly.
What we say:
We're with you guys, a shopping centre may not be the first place we'd go to look for dinner and drinks in Birmingham, but give us a chance, we think you'll like this one. Most likely to be best for upmarket punters and post work drinkers, Searcys have not only brought this balcony bar and brasserie into the 21st century, they've made it look really rather pretty too. It's about time that Birmingham boasted more luxurious brasseries and champagne hideaways; And what with Gordon Ramsay's right hand man at the foodie helm? This could be an undiscovered corker in the city.
