You may not know it, but this cool warehouse bar in Digbeth boasts one of the best street food markets in the city? And it's on every Friday night! Home to Digbeth Dining Club come sundown, Spotlight bar attracts the cool, young and hungry for a spot of local grub. With vendors such as Soupremes Soulfood churning out saltfish fritters and burgers, there's no excuse not to try a little deep south.
