What they say:
Here in Britain, we’re a little bit obsessed with style. With everything so fancy, good dive bars in general a sacred and hard to come by – but now one bar in Digbeth is hoping to make a difference. Meet The Ruin, a pub that literally does what it says on the door. Modelled on the ruin bars of Budapest, walk through and you can expect a shabby interior made of ruined doors, mismatched, recycled furniture and even a chandelier. In fact, random artefacts are a running theme, with Amstrad computers sitting unashamedly next to classroom clocks showing the time in other parts of the world.
