With a name like The Jekyll and Hyde, this bar in Birmingham couldn't be anything other than little bit odd. Striking the balance between the weird and the wonderful, The Jekyll and Hyde oozes Victorian charm. With a classic gin parlour upstairs and feisty party nights downstairs this is a cocktail bar with something for everyone. Complete with an Alice and Wonderland themed beer garden, The Jekyll and Hyde flies the flag for all things cool and quirky.
Not your average pub in Moseley, The Prince of Wales will be sure to teach you not to judge a book by its cover. A traditional pub with a quaint cocktail lounge is lovely but not quite weird enough for a bar in Birmingham. So, head on through the maze and you will find a cigarette shop/humidor and a tiki themed cocktail bar. Yes, that's right, a tiki themed garden! Cocktails made with theatrics you wouldn't believe, this weird bar in Birmingham is a go to for anyone after something a little different.
Now here's a beer garden that needs to be seen to be believed. A fun jungle brimming with odd artefacts and vintage wonders, the beer garden at The Spotted Dog in Digbeth has some unusual treats. From a mini library to a giant smoking penguin to some resident mannequins (with names) to retro record players....like we said, seen to be believed.
Of all the things you expect from a bar in Birmingham city centre, I bet a Medieval style retreat isn't one of them! With Medieval thrones tucked away behind throngs of iron bars, beautiful stone masonry and banquet style seating areas, Bacchus Bar will have you role playing Medieval royalty before you know it!
If you're looking for something a little different, head down to Birmingham's creative hub Digbeth and warm your cockles in The Karczma. This is a restaurant bar in Birmingham like no other! Traditional Polish decor, complete with fur throws and thatched ceiling create a wholesome atmosphere welcoming drinkers and diners alike. This place makes for a great alternative to your usual after work drinks in Birmingham.
