Like magic, you've sauntered your way through the Colmore Business District and found yourself outside another vintage emporium. An immediate crowd pleaser with its brazen purple exterior, The Jekyll and Hyde sticks out like the happiest sore thumb you ever did see. Head on inside for a journey back to the late 1800's where an upstairs Victorian gin parlour serves unfathomable cocktails. An Alice in Wonderland themed garden and some quiz night antics make this pub a unique stop.
Once you find yourself in the Jewellery Quarter, head down to the Rose Villa Tavern for a vintage Victorian paradise. The pub is decked out with cool artefacts like rich leather chairs, antler chandeliers and even some out-there tilework to boot. Grab a pint from this quirky Birmingham pub and have a great time.
Once you head to Digbeth, it’s time to dive into the retro world of The Night Owl. Bringing back the feeling of Northern Soul to the people of Birmingham, expect a pub-cum-bar covered vintage, retro decorations, which is coupled with a soundtrack channelling 50 years of some of the most legendary music of all times. How’s that for a stop on your quirky Birmingham pub crawl?
We're kicking things off at the the tip of the city with a pub that practically teeters on the edge of The Jewellery Quarter and Birmingham city centre. Whilst The Queens Arms may look like any bog standard boozer, there's something about the beer garden that is wholly unmissable. Weave your way out back to the intimate wooden shack clad space that boasts reclaimed cinema seats, benches from a double decker bus and Edison style lightbulbs; a true jaunt back to the 1930's.
So you've made your way to New Street, and it seems we've misled you to a post office! But no, we haven't brought you here for the long queues and selection of brown stationary; we've actually taken you to a pub that boasts one of the biggest collections of beer in the city. A haven to over 280 different types of beer and ale, international and local, the Post Office Vaults even supply your own passport to stamp these tasty little number along the way.
Tucked behind the Queensway, this is one almighty little cavern of cool. If you're not impressed by the locally commissioned artwork, bird cage lampshades, craft beer or soul food, we just don't know what to do with you. An institute unto its own, The Victoria is brimming with quirky, creative characters.
Whilst you may be thinking that this standard boozer is the least interesting on your journey, how wrong you'd be! Head on out back our fellow pub crawl friends for a dabble in a cigar shed, wine bar and one of the only tiki bars in the city, IN A PUB! From treasure chest cocktails and international tipples to a bamboo clad bar, this is a hidden gem alright perfect for your quirky pub crawl in Birmingham.
