As Birmingham's number one tiki-themed bar, The Island Bar always offers the city's party-mad revellers a night out that's far from your usual club experience. Beautifully decorated with bamboo furniture and various Polynesian props spread throughout, the venue's cocktail bar sticks with the theme, serving a range of rum and fruit infused cocktails that leave you feeling as if you're sat on a tropical beach somewhere.
Supported by an arsenal of intriguing ingredients, exotic fruits and potent liqueurs, the Jekyll and Hyde on Steelhouse Lane serve some of Birmingham's most daring cocktails. With a distinctive Victorian theme, the upstairs bar is decorated as a rustic 19th-century gin parlour and pulls in cocktail enthusiasts from all over with its impressive collection of drinks. Roll back the clock and celebrate New Year's Eve in this Victorian hideout in Birmingham.
The Night Owl is arguably the most charming venue in Birmingham. Suave and smooth in everything it does, the venue constantly has its head stuck in the past and is framed by a colourful selection of vintage memorabilia; think typewriters, record players and vintage vinyl records. Never shy of hosting huge funk, soul and Motown-inspired club nights, a New Year's Eve spent here is something you're not likely to forget anytime soon.
Elegant in everything it does, the Edgbaston is an idyllic hotel cocktail lounge that's drenched in sophisticated attitude. With a dazzling line-up of eye-pleasing cocktails, creativity flows effortlessly around the bar, as the expert mixologists go to work, mixing and flairing concoctions that are sure to leave you smiling. Hosting a suave Great Gatsby themed New Year's Eve party last year, expect a similarly suave evening of sharp suits and stunning dresses at this year's New Year's Eve party.
Easy going and relaxed, the Gas Street Social offers Birmingham's revellers a laid back way to spend their New Year's Eve in Birmingham.
