Hats off to The Edgbaston. Since launching in May 2014 it’s gone out of its way to nab some of the best staff and mixologists Birmingham has to offer. And why not?
Dress to impress in this achingly high-end boutique bar from the people behind the equally classy Kenilworth Hotel, in nearby Warwickshire. The cocktails are jaw-dropping. Made with molecular science there’s one called The Bees Knees that really is the, erm, the bee’s, erm … it’s really rather good.
Expect corporate types with discerning tastes and immaculately turned out, unfathomably good looking people. Plus us.
Best Bars tip: Some of the cocktails come as a total sensory experience, which basically means they squirt the air around you with a scent of some sort, before you drink. Sounds ridiculous. Is a bit. But it sure is fun.
