Best indie / alternative / electro / cheap club night in birmingham?

by bishos

I have just started going to resurrection at Subway and I love it! I can't recommend it enough! I haven't lived in the birmingham area long and was wondering if anyone knows any other clubs like this with indie rock etc that they can reccomend? Also does anyone know of a website address for resurrection as someone told me you can email your requests and they will play them for you I have spent ages trying to find it and guess it with no joy!! Help!

Hello there,

The website for resurrection at subway is


check out the games they are really cool! If it's indie rock and all that resurrection at subway is definitely your best bet! Snobs nightclub is another good one but not a patch on Subway. Ramshackle at academy used to be good but just seems to be full of kids now.

I think that the subculture on a saturday at the Academy isn't too bad, well it is better than friday anyway, it plays rock in the main room and indie upstairs, took indie friends recently and they thought the rock room was better than expected (i.e. not as heavy). Also if you go see a band on a friday or saturday at the academy you get free entrance to the club after. You may as well try some other places, but at least you have found somewhere good to go back to if you don't like any of them. Good luck!

The clubs already mentioned are the main ones I know of and tend to go to, before you hit the clubs check out The Sunflower Lounge on Smallbrook Queensway (few doors down from New St Station) and pick up some flyers, music is there is indie/alternative and they serve a decent selection of beers not sure what time it opens in the day but I've been in there from tea-time so I'm sure it's open throughout the day, also worth a look in is Scruffy Murphys in Dale End near the Academy, always loud music playing in there! Check out the club nights at Wolverhampton Civic Hall on a Friday and Saturday night if you fancy a change of scenery, both nights are similar to those at Academy but the beer is a lot cheaper!!!

Travel Tips for Birmingham

Packing List

by Aragina

Bring whatever you like, but remember you have to carry it :-) Best advice bring the most comfortable shoes you have, you will be doing a lot of walking .
Birmingham is normaly cold in winter, warm in summer, but always, always have an umbrella, it has been known to rain on just one side of the street here and be sunny on the other. You can buy everything you need in the UK , but make sure you have enough prescription drugs with you to last, if you do not belong to the EU the Medical costs are high and a lot of meds can't be bought over the counter, if you are not sure go to
they have a lot of info there. The UK can deal with any of your Photographic needs it may be a little more expensive than the US and Canada though. There are a few campsite on the outskirts of Birmingham, but you wont really need bug spray in here. Just bring lots of money, Birminhgam isn't as expensive as London, but there is a lot you can do for free.

Crummy shopping centre ?

by sourbugger

Do you get your kicks out of looking at decrepid, smelly, concrete shopping centres ?

If that is you bag, then make sure you visit the stunningly awful 'Five Ways' shopping centre.

The chances are that by the time you read this it will all (instead of just the first half) have been re-developed into some swanky glass-and-aluminium emporium and leisure complex. (thats a cinema and shops to you and me)

If you get to the Birmingham...

by renee2_21_78

If you get to the Birmingham Hotel, you must walk along the strip of department stores that are up and down that street area. This is good for those who are touring and do not have access to their own vehicle.
If you like to shop, there aren't too many things that aren't being sold around that area.

By Train Plane or Coach....

by chavez

By Train Plane or Coach. Birmingham is accessible with any mode of transport. once there you could travel around the city on a bus or taxi. a friendly tip when booking a taxi always ask the receptionist to ask the operator how much will the journey cost and then the driver can't charge you too much because you're a tourist.
Taxis and buses. you could hire a car but all locations do not require long distance journeys. if you wish to travel out of Birmingham to historical locations buses do have tour operators for that.

The jeera is a balti restaurant which definatley deserves mentioning. It (personally) is one of the best balti restaurant I have ever been to. Everyone else that I have introduced the restaurant to has also said the same. This restaurant definatly deserves 5 *'s.

The restaurant is quite small (which is good, because it makes the service better) very clean and the staff are very kind and welcoming. Chicken Balti
