What they say:

Coated in mixology mischief, Aluna is a stylish new venture from the former Oriental Restaurant's owners son, who has created a space of indulgence, drama and texture. The focus is on the 80 strong menu of cocktails, where you'll find all the weird and wonderful tricks of mixology in all their glory. Aluna is drenched in copper surfaces, bronzed sofas and rich wooden floors - a real escapist bar in the heart of one of Birmingham's booming areas. 

What we say:

Chemistry, conjuring and canal side views are in the mix of this shiny new Mailbox joint. Bringing a much needed touch of luxe to Birmingham's nightlife scene, Aluna is a fusion of swanky liquors, theatrical bartending and sophisticated interiors. For a dash of something demure and atmospheric supping, Aluna is making way for some finesse in Birmingham boozing.
