A Victorian themed vintage gin parlour upstairs and smatterings of retro oddities about the place? You can bet it's The Jekyll and Hyde in Birmingham city centre. And whilst this may be a vintage bar, there's certainly nothing old fashioned about the cocktails that The Jekyll and Hyde boast where unique flavours such as toothpaste flavoured rum create some special concoctions.
Whilst they may be at the forefront of Digbeth's party scene and purveyors of all things street food thanks to Digbeth Dining Club doing the rounds every Friday night, there's still something charming about Spotlight's vintage offerings. From chesterfield sofa's and low hanging vintage lamps to a selection of luggage trunk tables, Spotlight is industrial chic.
From vintage signs and kitsch wallpapers to upcycled furniture and flecks of the 70s, The Plough is a buzzing bar for those with retro pangs. Boasting one of the best beer gardens in Birmingham, The Plough is popular with the city's young and fun looking to get their dose of unique collectibles, British charm, local ales and homemade grub.
Their craft beer may be modern, their new fangled art work may be modern and their take on pub parties may be modern, but The Victoria is a pub in Birmingham city centre that boasts a plentiful amount of vintage charm. From recycled furniture and ceiling lights encased in vintage birdcases to a nod to the Victorian era, The Victoria is a fun blend of contemporary meets Sherlock Holmes.
Cherry Reds' vintage serving ethics are just as heartwarming as their collective of classic beer plaques. A fairly petite yet overtly friendly bar in the heart of King's Heath, Cherry Reds is popular with Brum's alternative crowd after a dose of vintage charm, cocktails, cupcakes and good old fashioned customer service with a smattering of vintage furniture thrown in for good measure.
