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.

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.

Fumo

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.
