“THE live music venue in Birmingham. Duran Duran started out playing here. There's two stages upstairs and two bars downstairs. No food is served and it's quiet during the day. A beautiful and huge Victorian pub”

Cocktail Bar

“The Alchemist has already made its name in Leeds, Manchester and London but none of these bars has a basement bar that resembles a copper encased wonderland. The Lab is a Gothic-style bar that makes full use of the historic features of The Grand with exposed brickwork and 18ft ceilings covered in a canopy of lights. The very dramatic interior is highlighted by the purple seating, copper bar and also a massive mural. ”

“Bacchus makes the grade thanks to its sheer wackiness. It’s one of those places that’s always fun to duck into with a visiting friend, if only to watch their reaction to the extravagant décor within. The venue is tucked away on the basement floor of the Burlington Arcade, a complex of hotels and shops in the centre of town, and located on one of Birmingham’s oldest streets. Dating back to 1398, this is a pub that’s taken the historical theme of the area and ran wild with it. ”
