Head to All Bar One in Brindleyplace after the races for a delish selection of cocktails, drinks and tapas galore at this wine bar in Birmingham. Known for its after work crowd and buzzing atmosphere, this bar is set to come alive once the Dragonboat Festival reaches its peak on the Brindleyplace canals.
