With one of the youngest urban populations in the world, it's no surprise that Birmingham is packed with hot spots for a great night out

From a quiet evening sipping secret microbrews to a night of living it large on the dance floor, Birmingham delivers it all in style.

Craft brew stars
Craft beer is booming in Birmingham; a vast selection of modern, welcoming pubs awaits. With more than 350 bottled beers and eight cask pumps, featuring a changing selection of microbrews from around the country, Post Office Vaults has something for everyone. Friends who don't want hops will find something to love in the exceptional selection of real ciders and perries. The Craven Arms delivers a traditional pub atmosphere while pouring a decidedly forward-thinking selection of London and Scandinavian star brewers. A little more variety is on tap at The Victoria, where cask and guest ales partner with an enticing cocktail menu and modern pub grub. Follow dinner and drinks with a chaser of DJs and live bands upstairs.
A stronger sip
Put on your best evening attire and enjoy a little high society at Champagne on the 25th floor of The Cube. Bubbly by the glass is the perfect accompaniment to the panoramic views of Birmingham by night. If it's cold outside, the tropical flavours at Island Bar, next to the Alexandra Theatre, will warm you inside and out. Don't miss the Mai Tai, a signature blend of three barrel-aged plantation rums, Curaçao, almond syrup and lime. Indulge your wicked side at The Jekyll & Hyde, where experts help you choose from 80 varieties of gin while you lounge amid the opulent Victorian décor. Wine lovers can turn drinking into an event at Loki Wine, where the staff and the self-serve wine dispensing machines actively encourage experimentation.
That's entertainment
After drinks, dance away the calories at one of Birmingham's unparalleled clubs. Clubbers love the old-school rave vibe at LMG Warehouse, home to two of the Midlands' biggest house nights. True to their name, the Rainbow Venues offer a rainbow of variety, from top-notch DJs to live bands. Spotlight and Next Door, both part of the Rainbow group, are perfect for a laid-back night dancing to the best DJs around.
Late-night fuel
No need to go to bed hungry when the elegant Pushkar is open late. Stop by for a classy take on late-night curry paired with a nightcap from their impressive cocktail list. At Bodega Cantina y Bar, a range of South American-themed tacos will fill cravings for late-night spice, while the late-night cocktail and pudding menu is perfect preparation for sweet slumber. When it's finally time for sleep, retreat to the comfort of our central Birmingham hotels, where 24-hour reception, a cosy bed, free Wi-Fi, and a tasty breakfast buffet await.
