Autumn 2022

Ready for something lush to hit the city? This October, you can elevate your dining game - quite literally. Housed inside 103 Colmore Row (AKA: the tallest building in Birmingham), Orelle is set to be a real sky-high stunner. The new French eatery and rooftop is brought to you by restaurant group D&D London - the same folks behind 20 Stories in Manchester, Angelica in Leeds, and Quaglino's in Central London.

Head to the 24th floor and feast your eyes on gorgeous interiors, oozing with glitz and glam, from the leather banquettes to floor-to-ceiling panoramic views and marble floor. Along with sleek décor, it should come as no surprise that the food and drink menu will be equally as dreamy - we mean modern French fare and expertly mixed cocktails. Swoon.

Want to explore other swish parts of the building? There will be special lifts that will bring you straight down to a ground floor cocktail bar if you fancy a tipple or two. 103 Colmore will also be launching Eighteen, an 18th-floor terrace and business lounge, which promises a slew of networking events and wellbeing classes. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, you can get stuck into a new streetside cafe, complete with all-day breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon teas, as well as a bar menu for the evenings.
