The Island Bar

14-16 Suffolk Street Birmingham B1 1LT 0121 632 5296

We say

A cocktail bar without any stuffiness, the Island Bar draws a dependably hipster crowd. In fact, with dark wooden floors and darkly coloured leather sofas, offset with flashes of vivid colours, there is a hint of Manhattan swankiness about the place, but it's matched by a beach bar feel (lots of artwork depicting grass skirted ladies) and a rum collection that totals more than 50 types – hence the name. The staff are passionate about their cocktail-making, which is suitably histrionic and demonstrative. Indeed if you're impressed by these antics you should enquire about their very own cocktail master classes.
