Bars to Avoid the World Cup in Birmingham
Ah, football? To heck with it! Done with the the lairy lounging about, consistent heckling and frankly off-side antics that a football match brings about? Or would simple rather a drink in the city instead? From artisan liquid escapes and sky-high sauntering to quiet lil' charmers, we've found just the destinations to escape from one of the biggest football tournaments in history. Check out our recommendations for the best bars to avoid the 2022 World Cup in Birmingham.
You could spend the entire time the World Cup is playing in Birmingham pubs with loud, sweaty people; or you could head to Dirty Martini, who will be delivering you all the best in their masterfully made cocktails, a wonderful happy hour, and the sophisticated environment you need.
Add a bit of glamour as you avoid the World Cup in Birmingham with Olivia's Townhouse. Think an extensive drinks list served by the finest mixologists around, as you soak up everything from live music all the way up to club nights, if you're really committed to avoiding the footie.
Leave your partner at the pub and get your football-hating mates down to Be At One, where their expert mixologists will shake you up something special as their DJs play the best tracks around. Add in a late license and a great happy hour and you're in for a good time.
Now here's a way to avoid the football in Birmingham: head to the South Pacific! Luckily, you just need Island Bar, who will be delivering Hawaiian shirts, tonnes of rum, and a party playlist that'll have you thinking about those beachy shores.
One of the most sought after destinations for tapas in the city, Fumo is a dapper dining establishment where high-end dishes and high-end cocktails reign supreme. From a collection of over 60 cocktails to be dabbled and devoured by their marble top bar, to tapas dishes delectably dined in their main restaurant, there wont be a football in sight at this hot to trot city centre establishment.
When every bar has gone football mad, there's somewhere else you can turn: The Glee Club! One of the most famous institutions in the city, it's the perfect place to catch world-class comedy – and we're not talking about England's performance on the pitch (haha)
Where better to escape from the football in Birmingham than a bar set at its highest destination? Found atop of Birmingham's infamous Cube building and boasting some of the most sought after views of the city, Marco Pierre White's Champagne Bar is sure to be a darling, dapper and sophisticated escape from the hooting and hollering of football fans in the city.
Instead of focusing on the football, The Cuban Embassy are continuing to deliver top live music alongside their extensive rum menu. Get some Cuban cocktails, frozen daiquiris, and more, all while boogie to something other than a football anthem.
