Best Bar 2014/15 - DesignMyNight Awards

A bespoke style bar in the heart of Birmingham's bustling Colmore District, The Bureau boasts a distinct speakeasy style and traditional charm that stakes its claim over this suited and booted party of the city. 

Classic is but one of the words to describe a bar like The Bureau. From their plush mahogany style leather booths and their white washed marble bar tops to their luxe high ceilings thanks to the historic building that they reside in, The Bureau are harking back to an era where the slick and sophisticated reign supreme. 

Following on their bespoke interior right through to their leather bound drinks index, The Bureau are one of Birmingham's most comprehensive cocktail bars. From handmade concoctions to elusive flavours found in everything from their 'Chocolate Egg' down to their 'Smoked Martini' and 'Grog Bowl', The Bureau are suitably defined by these unique taste adventures. Side that with a selection of ever changing deli dogs and you're chortling all the way home.

Nice enough in here - very quiet when we ate here, but lovely food if a little on the more expensive side...I wasn't aware there was a rooftop terrace so I'll have to investigate further!

This place is full of atmosphere and sophistication. The rooftop terrace is a lovely place to cool off and relax. What the bar lacks, is a decent bar service. Two rounds took almost 30 mins each. Even the bottles of beer couldn't be served quickly as they had to be placed in ice to chill (isn't that the job of the chilled they came from?) before being dramatically served. On a sweltering night, this did nothing to endear the barman to his customers.

I have high hopes for this newly opened bar...has bags of potential. Could be very cool. Beautiful decor, good burger, great location. Negatives - didn't like te wall mounted TV screens (decidedly uncool) and he bar area was freezing. Certainly one to watch.

Birmingham needs a new cocktail bar, there's not to many cool ones in the city for after work so I'm really amped about what this could offer, and our first speakeasy? NICE!
