What better way to end the bar crawl then on Birmingham's bustling party strip, Broad Street. We're stopping off at Ozzie themed fun-time party bar, Walkabout for drink, dance and whatever else you lads love getting up to. Here you'll find bargain beer deals, a vibrant party atmosphere, and the best pop anthems to bop along to. Finish up with a bang and go home with the memories to prove it.
Before we head into the bustling city centre, let's start things off in the Jewellery Quarter at one of Birmingham's hidden gems, The Lord Clifden. With one of the best beer gardens in Birmingham, there's no better place to grab a pint with your boy buds than at this cool, quirky and friendly pub. Head there at the weekend when it comes to life with DJs playing an eclectic mix, guaranteed to get you in the party mood before we move onto the next venue.
Birmingham Bierkeller is the perfect stop on your lad’s bar crawl. Big on personality, big on interiors and big on steins of beer, you’ll find everything you want here. Whether it’s the long tables to fit you on, the waiting staff in the traditional outfits or the Oompah band to get you all dancing, if you’re doing a lad bar crawl, stop off here.
Hop in a cab and head across the city (or brave the 20 minute walk!), and arrive at Bubble Lounge. This rustic, Mediterranean inspired bar boasts a vast selection of local ales and beers in a relaxed environment. It's also a mecca for all whiskey lovers, being the only stockists of Scottish Malt Whisky Society whiskies in the city. But don't dress down for such a tipple, this is a definite destination for the suited and booted. Drinks down and ready to move along?
We're heading to John Bright Street now where the next two locations can be found, with only a minutes' walk between the two (don't say we never look after you lads). First off is Brewdog. Home to an impressive selection of craft beer, quirky New York style interior, and a chilled, easy atmosphere, it's easy to see why Brewdog is so popular with the city. Crack on with a crack brew before taking to our next liquid adventure.
Birmingham's hidden gem, Bacchus Bar. For something a little different, look no further than this basement bar and its quirky, Medieval-style decor. Showcasing some of the best ales from all around the country, Bacchus Bar constantly change what's on offer, giving their customers a chance to try something new on each visit. You'll spend a good chunk of your time here twisting your head to take in all the exciting features and getting your gullet around their ales, but if you can stop for more than a minute then it's time to make our way to the next stop on the bar crawl.
Walk less than a minute down the road and you'll arrive at the next location - The Victoria. This 19th Century theatre pub offers a creative cocktail menu, extensive selection of craft beers, and is even home to the Birmingham Whisky Club. A haven for Birmingham's drinkers, this pub welcomes everyone and anyone, even you chaps. You won't want to leave this cosy, warm venue, but with only one more stop on our tour of Birmingham it's time to head to the our last bar.
