What they say:

After having a hand in Birmingham's strong independent scene for years, the talented Joe Schuppler, founder of Independent Birmingham, and Robert Wood, former head bartender at the Edgbaston Hotel, are teaming up for a new secret cocktail bar concept called 18/81. The bar will be placing a special importance on serving up high quality drinks with ingredients combined in advance and diluted to perfection. With a range of specially curated spirits available to customers in addition to a small wine and beer menu, 18/81 hopes to change the status quo of cocktail bars.

What we say:

The 18/81 experience starts before you even sip your first drink – the adventure of discovering its secret location only adds to its intriguing atmosphere. That's why its drink selection is so great, it's full of secrets! Its laidback environment mixed with its high quality drinks are a recipe for success. The location has yet to be revealed, but that's all part of the fun. The bar says it is accepting same-day bookings, but will be keeping 50% of tables free for walk-ins. Be the first to uncover the secret when this bar opens on Thorp Street.
