Bar Ikigai

Description

Hidden away in the loft space above 1000 Trades, Ikigai is a 32-seat venue offering table service for a variety of Japanese inspired cocktails, beers, wines and non-alcoholic cocktails. 

Bar Ikigai is an independently owned cocktail bar in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham City Centre. Boasting a relaxed atmosphere alongside friendly, attentive and knowledgeable service, Ikigai aims for a high-quality cocktail experience whilst the comfort of the dark velvet booths and small tables retain a cosy, intimate feel. 

Minimalist design is the perfect backdrop for Ikigai as the drinks speak for themselves – each with its own individual story which your friendly server will tell as it is brought to your table. The minimal décor accentuates the rich history of the Grade II listed building in which Ikigai resides, original exposed brick and original factory windows add charm and character while the modern touch of Tokyo Lo-Fi background music creates a harmonious contrast.

If it's sake you’re after, Ikigai is one of a handful of Birmingham venues which are able to serve sake in traditional vessels, either hot or cold. For the more personalised experience, the Omakase is your chance to order a drink off-menu but made specifically to your tastes by specifying an alcohol, flavour and length/style.

For small gatherings and private events, the bar is available to hire for up to 40 people with a variety of packages to suit the needs of your party.
