Clubbing In Birmingham
The club that you decide to spend the twilight hours in can make or
break an evening.
With the range of famous and fantastic clubs in Birmingham you really
have no excuse not to get it right first time whatever you’re
The funkiest people in the area head to Air [map],
Heath Mill Lane, Digbeth, which is a relatively new club on the scene
but has already kicked up a storm with customers.
With three large rooms – The Oxygen Arena, The Nitrogen Room
and The Carbon Lounge – this place is run by the famous Gods
Kitchen posse and has already gathered a reputation that puts
it in the top five of Birmingham’s hottest clubs.
If you like your house hard make your way to Bakers [map]
, Broad Street. This lively and energetic club has some of the
best beats in Birmingham and is popular with a young crowd. A strict
door policy ensures that only those genuine dance fans are welcomed
and there’s plenty of cheap beer on hand to help you find the
Indie types flock to the legendary Birmingham Academy [map]
, Dale End, which is twinned with both the Brixton Academy and
the Shepherds Bush Empire. Some of the best bands in Britain come
here to perform and the indie and rock nights held here are talked
about for months after.
Rock gods and goth types might prefer the dark cavern that is Edwards
No. 8, Lower Servern Street. Along with live music nights there’s
also three floors of excellent tunes every weekend (ska, punk, and
rock) and this place is always popular with students.
The newest kid on the block is HQ [map],
Hampton Street, Off Constitution Hill. This is now home to Birmingham’s
favourite club night Miss Moneypenny’s [map]
and also the place to enjoy Archive and Lovestruck.
British jazz supremo Jools Holland has brought his brand of laid back
style to The Jam House [map],
St Paul’s Square. This restaurant has a great programme of live
music and clubbing events as well as some incredible dishes to tempt
you to stay and enjoy the evening’s entertainment.
If an intimate venue like The Jam House is not for you and you like
to large it in larger premises then check out The Works [map],
Five Ways Leisure Complex, Broad Street.
Three rooms pump out a variety of music but all have that mix of cheesy
pop and chart dance. This is, however, a great place to party so if
you’re planning a weekend of fun a visit to The Works is unavoidable.
