1. Sassiest Cocktail Bar in Birmingham: Tonight Josephine


When you walk through the doors of Tonight Josephine, enjoy the fun atmosphere with the fun neon lights, comfy seating and quirky mirrored walls.

Based on the iconic Josephine De Beauharnais, Empress of France, the original ‘it girl’, this space encompasses fun, flirty and vibrant vibes. While you’re there, check out their drink menu and maybe even treat yourself to one of their signature cocktails. Personally, I suggest the Paloma (tequila, grapefruit soda and fresh lime) or the Starburst Boogie (vodka, amaretto, peach schnapps, pineapple and citrus juice).

If you’re looking for a fun night out with your friends or a place to throw your birthday party, check out Tonight Josephine’s private hire option for up to 240 guests.

Just a short walk from Birmingham New Street and Birmingham Moor Street train stations, in the heart of Birmingham, is Jojolounge, an ideal location for your next private party, work event or birthday dinner.

Inspired by the lounge bars in New York City, this fun bar and restaurant has a modern atmosphere and retro style. When you enter this venue, don’t be surprised by the sleek leather chairs and expansive bar. Maybe even pop over to the bar and ask for a passionfruit margarita (tequila, passion fruit liqueur, passion fruit and lime)or mojito twist (peach vodka, mint, lime and ginger beer).

3. A funky interior with standout signature drinks for your next event in Birmingham: Orelle


From breakfast and brunch to afternoon tea and after-dinner drinks, Orelle serves delicious drinks and an all-day café that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.

When you pop in to check out this fun space, with its dark blue walls, front-and-centre bar and funky orange seating, make sure to look at their extensive cocktail menu. Some of my favourite speciality drinks are Queen Bee (thyme-infused tequila, Aperol, honey and lime) or Mexicain (cardamom-infused tequila, fresh lime, agave and blood orange soda).

From a birthday event and family dinner to a private party and business meeting, check out this spot for your next exclusive occasion, with space for up to 70 guests.

4. A contemporary bar and restaurant set in a traditional Victorian building: The Lost & Found Birmingham


The Lost & Found serves classic British food in a quirky atmosphere, set in a Victorian building. The beautiful columns, detailed ceiling and sleek decor creates a comforting and chic setting for your next private event.

Once you sit down for dinner or enter the doors for a private party, check out the beautiful dark brown bar and try one of their fun signature cocktails. My suggestion, try one of their flavourful gin and tonics or a Kokotini (coconut rum, black raspberry liqueur and pineapple).

The Lost & Found Restaurant & Bar is a lovely option for your next exclusive party, with space for up to 70 guests.

How to hire a nice bar in Birmingham

We know that finding a venue the old-fashioned way (where you trawl the internet, contact 10 venues or set your heart on one, only to find that they're out of your price range and not even available on your dates) is a pain, and there are a few pitfalls between you and booking a nice bar. Getting the venue-finding process down to a professional art is what we’ve made our mission ever since we took on the events industry. We often get asked the same questions, so here's what we recommend to quickly and easily hire a space in Birmingham.

Frequently asked questions

For nice bars in Birmingham, you're spoilt for choice. Here are a few extra special ones that we vouch for:

Tonight Josephine – With pink walls, sugary cocktails and inspirational neon signs, Tonight Josephine is definitely one of the nicest bars Birmingham has to offer.

Jojolounge Bar & Restaurant – With its neutral walls and wood-heavy interiors, this bar is just the right amount of chic and minimal.

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of exclusive hire of a nice bar or a private space in a nice bar. How many guests are you planning for? Is the venue for the day, an afternoon, or the night? The good news is that you can find a venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.

There are lots of ways to book a Birmingham nice bar. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the nicest bars in Birmingham and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.
