Take a stroll in Birmingham's City Centre and you may just come across the hidden gem of a basement pub that is Bacchus Bar, if you look hard enough that is.

Found on one of the oldest streets in Birmingham, Bacchus Bar's interior reflects 'ye olde' geographical status. Brimming with wrought iron decor, vintage furniture and more rich woodwork than you could shake a tree at, Bacchus sits under atmospheric brick coves and stunning stone masonry. Those of you looking for something a little different in Birmingham will be amazed and intrigued by this charming medieval hideaway under the busy streets of the city.

Welcoming all walks of Birmingham life be them old or young, the relaxed atmosphere and interesting environment make this traditional pub in Birmingham a must-visit. Those after well crafted real cask ales, local beers, blonde pale ales and British pub grub will also find Bacchus a tasty retreat from busy weekdays.

My go to bar when catching a train at the adjacent new st. Station (for that matter any other time I have an excuse!!)the fact I have no phone signal is fantastic as it means my friends and I can have an actual conversation!!... good selection of ales , quirky seating areas and the feel of London opulence with Birmingham prices ... try it , you'll never know otherwise 👍

Bacchus is unlike any other bar in Birmingham. Enjoy a pint amongst historic settings including church pews and tapestries. The dimly lit settings provide a great environment for chatting. The drinks menu is pretty standard offers good value for money

Gorgeous little hideaway. Once inside you do not feel like you are right in the centre, so relaxing. The décor almost takes you aback when you enter, Drinks are well priced and food is very good for pub grub!

There is so much to look at here! Unless you knew it was there, you probably wouldn't see it! Quiet quiet when I went and a little bit nippy! A really cool place to go though, definitely recommend it - hidden gem!

A feel of sheer awe as you walk in. Super, cosy bar! Hidden out of view, perfect for couples wanting quality time. Great place will be visiting again and again.

I absolutely loved that movie, A Knight's Tale, and this bar feels exactly like a scene from the movie. It was so hard to find at first but i'm glad I persisted, such a fun place and great bevvies.
