1. A cool Birmingham bar to visit for its huge selection of drinks: 52 Gas Street
Originally built as a gun factory before being used as stables for the canal, this cool Birmingham bar has certainly been around the block. Admire their cosy leather booths, well-lit interior and homely wooden beams.
Located in their self-titled street, this aesthetic Birmingham bar overlooks the canal (did you know that Birmingham has more than Venice?), giving you a decent view of the city's waterways.
The main thing which sets this venue apart is their extensive drinks list. Although you’ll be able to recognise all your favourite cocktails, if you’re a fan of the spirits then this bar is your calling. Boasting 40 plus types of vodka and around 80 different gins, there's a lot to get through.
