“1000 trades, a craft beer and wine venue is now open in Frederick Street in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter. The Grade II-listed premises, which previously housed Caribbean bar-restaurant Diamonds and Pearlz, has been given a make-over, or should we say make-under - given the extent of bare brick walls and mismatched furniture. But most impressively it sells wine at £2.50 a glass! On Sunday's they have live music and an amazing roast ‘Jazz//Roast’ – live jazz and proper Sunday roasts boxed wine but at that price it’s definitely worth giving a try. ”

“Why go? For big celebrations in unfussy surrounds. Chef Glynn Purnell is a lynchpin of Birmingham’s gastronomic scene, famous for his nose-to-tail cooking. Having won Birmingham one of its first Michelin stars at a previous restaurant, Purnell set up shop on his own soon after, where, sure enough, the Michelin gods came knocking again. Try the Brummie tapes menu, which spans from poppadums to slow-cooked beef. Price range: High-end.”

Art Gallery
“This is a pretty special addition to our bar scene. Go up the red carpet into a corridor adorned with art on the wall and then enter an antiques museum, bar and tapas restaurant. Buy a drink and also receive a complimentary tapas plate. Told you this was special.”

“Why go? To devour elevated Indian food in high-end surrounds. Birmingham super chef Aktar Islam is going all out to win a Michelin star with this posh progressive Indian restaurant on Summer Row. From the stunning cherry-blossom decked bar to the bustling open kitchen, the emphasis is firmly on style and expression. And the former Lasan chef and TV star’s reinterpretations of Indian classics like laal maans and hyderabadi biryani are truly inspired. Price range: High-end.”
