The Victoria

8 John Bright Street Birmingham B1 1BN

The traditional pub frontage of this classic corner pub, with its stained glass windows, belies the funky vibe within. By day, only the uber-hip artwork that adorns the walls may suggest this is indeed a favoured watering-hole of retro-cool thirty-somethings. By night, however, the aforementioned clientele pour in, while the knowledgeable and deferential staff stir up an assortment of cocktails and DJs spin everything from soul to old-skool hip-hop, depending on the night. Regular fixtures such as Thursday’s Manhattan Loft and Friday’s Keepin' it Soulful are augmented with live gigs and spoken word events, ensuring the events calendar never gets stale.
