Broad Street: Friday and Saturday night

Broad Street is one of, if not the main area in birmingham for drinking and dancing. There are plenty of pubs and clubs dotted about with plenty going on, the younger generation will probably end up in the works or sports cafe, where as us older people tend to end up discoing it up in flares or braningans. Theres plenty on offer for everyone and you won't be disappointed.

Dress Code Smart casual, definately no trainers

Broad Street: Walkabout

Walkabout's offer the same night no matter where you in the UK. You could be in London, Manchester or Birmingham and on a Saturday night you are guarenteed a band to be playing live music on one floor and 90s dance music on the other. It is a safe bet for a good evening. Drinks prices of about £3 so drink elsewhere before getting to the club and make sure its not your turn to buy the drinks when you get there!

Dress Code Everywhere on Broad Street has a dress code of no trainers.

Broad Street: Spoilt for Choice

I think Birmingham is very under-rated... I absolutely Loved it...Especially going out in Birmingham, there are so many places to go to... For example Broad Street, if you go there you are really spoilt for Choice, as there are loads and loads of trendy bars, pubs, and nice restaurants.
Waxy O'Connors is a nice pub, but quite large on the inside, so arrange to meet your friends at a designated spot, or you will never find them amongs the crowds.

Broad Street: Las Ramblas it ain't!

It's packed. it's noisy, the bars have door staff ie. bouncers, drinks are not too expensive.ID is required if the door staff think you look under 21, even though 18 is the legal age. Brindley Place - just off Broad Street - is a bit more up-market and hence more expensive The names also tend to change, which makes it hard to recommend anywhere, but there is a Wetherspoons' bar in the middle of Broad Street that is fairly cheap and civilised and has a large outdoor area to the rear. It also does a lot of food.

Dress Code Varies, but avoid jeans and trainers at weekends.

The Walkabout.: The Walkabout.

An Australian theme bar. As you can probably guess the bar has a largely Australian theme to its decor. There are several televisions dotted around the bar so that you can watch some sport while drinking some Australian beer like XXXX or Fosters.

Broad Street: Broad Street

Practically all of Broad Street, starting with the REP - for theatre, moving on to Jongleurs, a must see for stand up comedy, must go to.....on a weekend night Broad Street is like a crowded train station.

Broad Street: A Heck of a walk

Broad Street is the in place to spend your night on the town, with a wide variety of clubs and pubs. Recent redevlopement of the entire Canal Basin has attracted investment in this area. With the result that there is always something happening throughout the day. At night time the area comes alive.

Dress Code Varies from place to place, but assume tidy and fashionable clothing to be the norm and expectation

Dress Code smart casual.

Walkabout (Australian Bar): G'day mate - fancy a pint?

This is an Aussie themed bar that also has a nightclub downstairs. The atmosphere is relaxed and this is a good place to catch some sports on the big screen TV's. The beer and food is reasonably priced.

There is also regularly live entertainment here.

Figure of Eight (Weatherspoons): Cheap Food & Beer

If you fancy a few cheap drinks and some decent cheap food before you hit the other bars & clubs on Broad Street I highly recommend this pub. The prices are some of the cheapest around and as such this place gets full very early on.

Dress Code as you are

This has got to be one of my favourite clubs in Birmingham.
This club plays some of the best house music around. This club also attracts the UK's best DJ's.

Republica is my fave night (Saturdays). If you get in before 10:30pm it is usually cheaper entry. The Club usually closes at around 4am.

Dress Code smart casual
