Bacchus Bar


For a genuinely unique experience in Birmingham's City Centre, try exploring the hidden gem of a basement pub that is Bacchus Bar.

Less than five minutes’ walk from Birmingham New Street Station, you’ll find one of the oldest bars in the city, boasting wrought iron decor, vintage furniture, an Egyptian themed room – complete with hieroglyphics – a French styled dining room that’s available for private hire and can accommodate up to 32 quests, and enough Roman sculpture to satisfy Bacchus himself (appropriately enough, he’s the Roman God of Wine).  

You’ll relax under atmospheric brick coves and stunning stone masonry in this charming medieval hideaway, while life in the UK’s second city rushes by above.

What’s more, as a specialist fish house, you can tuck into delicious servings of fresh fish dishes perfectly paired with a lovingly poured pint. Those after well-crafted real cask ales, local beers and blonde pale ales will find Bacchus a tasty retreat from the hustle and bustle of Birmingham.
