Tucking itself into the handsome Mailbox entertainment complex is the newly refurbished Pennyblacks, a wine and real ale house in Birmingham with British sass. 

Stretch yourself down Pennyblack's lengthy bar to find not only an ample selection of ales, but an ample selection of places to sit in this attractive and smart bar brimming with rustic flecks, exposed brickwork and vintage furniture. With its bubbly atmosphere and gastro pub charm, people of all ages find Pennyblacks a treat. Whether it's for footie on a Sunday in Birmingham, or cod and chips on a Wednesday.

So what's the biggest pull you're wondering? With an outdoor canal-side seating area poised over the Gas Street Canal, bagging yourself a seat out here in the summer is one of the biggest draws to this bar. Shades on, drinks served. Well, that and 'Fizz Day Fridays' of course. Bottles of Prosecco go down to just £12.95 between 3 and 7pm on Fridays. So maybe it's 'shades on, Prosecco served', instead?

Some people normally miss this place because it's tucked right away in the mailbox but I really recommend it, the design is pretty nice and so are the drinks. You can see the canal if you get the right table too
