Old Joint Stock Pub & Theatre


Victorian, unique and vintage are but a few ways to describe the eye-catching Old Joint Stock Theatre pub, sitting just shy of Birmingham City Centre. 

Born originally as a library then later a bank, this decadent and richly decorated Victorian pub sits comfortably opposite St Philips Cathedral in one of Birmingham's most charming squares. Designed by local architect Julius Alfred Chatwin, this cosy Birmingham pub makes for an interesting talking point on any date night thanks to their homely balcony overlooking the pub's central island bar. From it's central glass dome to classic features, The Old Joint Stock has retained true period charm. 

Pub by day come Birmingham entertainment venue by night; The Old Joint Stock Theatre not only hosts live music on the last Wednesday night of every month and the Birmingham Wine School, but take a nosey to the top floor in this nineteenth century building and you'll find one of Brum's premium theatre's/comedy nights. From burlesque shows and improv nights to wine tasting, The Old Joint Stock Theatre is jam packed with events 365 days of the year.
