Let’s face it; we all need an escape once in a blue moon. And guess what? Thanks to this beautiful thing we call technology, you can transport yourself to a different dimension, all while sipping on a delicious tipple. Introducing Otherworld, a virtual reality bar that showcases 18 multi-sensory immersion pods in gorgeous sci-fi-inspired interiors. With celebs such as Adele and Jonathan Ross raving over its successful London location, it comes as no surprise that the newest Brum site is set to be a smash hit as well.
Situated on Bennetts Hill, the all-white venue is decked out with illuminated tables, plush seating, and space projections on walls. Their immersion pods feature 360-degree 4D tech so you can have adventures on a virtual island while exploring 16 different experiences in 4 zones. We recommend trying Half-Life: Alyx – it's a real nail-biter.
After completing your mission, head to the bar where you can get your fill of drinks in using its unique 16-tap self-serve station. Quench your thirst with classics such as Lucky Saint and G&Ts, as well as cocktails served from Black Lines.
