The Night Owl

Take a music-mad teleport mission back to the boogie-busting bygone decades of the 60s, 70s and 80s, as uplifting, live music lair The Night Owl wreaks retro in Digbeth. Focusing heavily on the old-school Motown and Northern Soul Movement, come expecting authentic, vintage vinyl on the decks, and an eclectic assortment of top tunes, from soul, disco jingles and funk to chilled-as reggae, ska and mod. A funky interior to match the buzzing vibes throughout, you'll club in groovy, retro comfort and embrace those oh so sweet, symphonic sounds of yester-decades.

Drinking and dancing doesn't have to be saved for the weekend, not at Revolution. Jam packed with party revellers every day with drinks deals and cocktails that will send you in to a spin. A real fun time party bar on Broad Street, this buzzing venue will have you in the mood the dance in no time! I love Vodka every Wednesday and RLA every Sunday have party goers flocking here week on week ready to bust a move.

Keeping things cool and quirky, Spotlight bar in Digbeth throws some of the best DJ nights around. Embracing local underground and DJ talent this unique warehouse space attracts Birmingham's young and hip in their hoards. Playing and eclectic mix of house, rock, jazz and reggae you'll soon be up and off the vintage style sofas and doing your thing on the dance floor.

The Cuban Embassy

Two words sum up The Cuban Embassy: rum and music. Six nights awake the bar is alive with the sound of Latin music, with Latin fusion taking over till the early hours on the weekends, and to keep you moving is a whole range of delicious rums, authentic Cuban cocktails and frozen daiquiris. If you feel a bit peckish, they also have a menu of street food available too.
