40 St Paul's


40 St Paul's is not just one of the coolest spots in Birmingham, but one of the best gin spots. 

Find what looks like someone’s home and there’s a black door with the number 40 on it, and you’ve found the gin bar you’ve been looking for. Inside, expect black booths, dark wooden tables, a long bar filled with tonnes of gin, and only 24 seats.

They serve a carefully curated range of showstopping gin concoctions, with a bar holding 140 different kinds of gins. While gin is their main focus - each paired with a garnish and tonic that works with that specific drink - there's also a small selection of wines and beers too.

40 St Paul's - Birmingham Bar Review

When it comes to Birmingham, Broad Street is usually the go-to destination for a night of drinking. However, St Paul’s Square, just a fifteen minute walk away, is a more than worthy contender.
