Birmingham's 7 best rooftop bars

Birmingham Rooftop Bar. What is it about them that causes people to salivate, their lips puckered at the thought of an elevated space unseparated from the sprawl of Birmingham sky?

Take a building. Nothing Special. Add a rooftop. Okay, so we have a view. Now add a cool drink, a steady stream of music and a buzzing crowd. Now we're talking.

Birmingham has come along leaps and bounds in terms of its rooftop bars. No longer is it a bag of cans atop the Jewellery Quarter's multi-story carpark. There are so many, in fact, we thought it was worth making a list.

1. A Birmingham rooftop bar in Digbeth: The Roof Terrace: The Rainbow Venues


You might have heard of the Rainbow Venues as owners of some of Digbeth’s best indoor spots to rave. Whilst this is certainly true, we’d like to bring their amazing Rooftop Terrace to your attention. With a stunning view of Birmingham’s skyline, this rooftop bar is a must-visit.

Located next to Digbeth’s infamous Victorian railway arch, the Roof Terrace is certainly an asset to Birmingham’s party scene. It is accessible via two of the Rainbow’s clubs, ‘The Warehouse’ and ‘The Blackbox’.

Available for daytime parties or evening raves, this Birmingham rooftop bar is the King of versatility. Bask in the open air whilst dancing your heart out. The exclusive view from the terrace of Birmingham’s skyline truly makes this rooftop bar unique. It’s the best of both worlds — a top-tier rave spot and a breathtaking view (especially at sunset).

2. A Birmingham rooftop bar to visit for year-round panoramic views of the city: Marco Pierre White at The Cube


Located on level 25 of The Cube, this sophisticated Birmingham rooftop bar is a must-visit venue. With the bar boasting a 360-degree panoramic view of Birmingham, the city’s skyline has never appeared more breathtaking.

Its rooftop conservatory (which absolutely looks as cool as it sounds) is accessible all year round. With a retractable roof for summer and heated for winter, no weather can interrupt your visit to this Birmingham rooftop bar.

However, if the amazing view of the skyline wasn’t enough to tempt you then the food and cocktails definitely will. This Birmingham rooftop spot is renowned for their delicious array of tender steaks as part of their refined dining menu.

If you’re looking to go one step further, a trio of rooms are available for private hire, all with a gorgeous view of Birmingham’s skyline of course.

3. A Birmingham rooftop bar to let your hair down in: The Mill


When it comes to party terraces, The Mill is one of the first that comes to mind. Situated in the industrial Digbeth, the botanical theme offers an amazing escape from the everyday.

This Birmingham rooftop bar is not just for sipping on a cocktail or two. Instead, the terrace plays host to some of Birmingham’s best music events. With talented DJs and bands hitting the decks you can happily dance the night away whilst making the most of their extensive drinks list.

Although there is no denying that partying inside a traditional nightclub is fun, a rooftop bar definitely takes the cake. So what are you waiting for? Round up your friends and get ready to dance the night away to the best beats in town.

Also available for a variety of private-hire events.

4. A Birmingham rooftop bar to visit for quality food: The Canal House


Sitting proudly alongside Birmingham’s canals lies this brilliant rooftop bar. With not just one terrace but two (one on the rooftop), this venue is highly sought after. Who needs to visit Venice when you’ve got Birmingham?

The bar has an extensive menu, as alongside their classic mains they also have options for brunch and a Sunday roast. We recommend choosing from their range of hanging kebabs for the coolest experience. In addition to this, their drinks menu does not disappoint. Whether you fancy a delicious cocktail or two on date night or a juice boost in the afternoon, this Birmingham rooftop bar has you covered. Life’s all about balance right?

With live music every Friday and Saturday evening the atmosphere in this bar is top-notch. Dinner has never sounded so good.

5. A Birmingham rooftop bar that will amaze you: Pitcher and Piano


Sometimes one rooftop terrace bar isn’t enough. Just a stone’s throw away from the Canal House lies the Pitcher and Piano. Open day and evening with an extensive drinks list to choose from, this Birmingham bar proves that you can never have too many amazing rooftop views.

Now onto the specifics — like what our favourite drink is. We personally love ‘On Wednesdays we wear Pink’. Fuelled with Bombay sapphire gin, it’s perfect for a boozy night (and did we mention it comes with an edible flower?)

If you love getting your value for money then this is the place to come. With a selection of 2-for-1 cocktails, a night on the bar’s rooftop terrace has never sounded so great. Moreover, their bottomless brunch is amazing. Priced just £34 per person, you can choose from an array of drinks alongside a delicious selection of brunch food. Yum.

6. An exclusive Birmingham rooftop bar to visit for its pints: The Malt House


Sometimes you want a Birmingham rooftop bar that forbids the fancy, cancels the cocktails and denies the decadence. The Malt House is a chilled-out affair, propped up canalside. It's known locally for its quality beer selection, welcoming vibe and, of course, the much sought-after balcony seating.

Bask in the (sometime) sun and neck back a few scoops whilst taking in an elevated view of Birmingham's famous waterways.

Oh yeah, Bill Clinton also had a pint here. So there's that.

7. A unique Birmingham rooftop bar known for its aesthetics: Henman and Cooper


One thing we can promise you about this Birmingham rooftop bar is that you won’t find another like it. Situated on Colmore Row, the granite features, as well as the bright and vibrant decorations, create a deliciously warm atmosphere.

You certainly won’t be going thirsty with the choice of four bar areas sprawled over two floors, also available for private hire. You can travel between the two via the bar’s grand staircase surrounded by neon light fixtures and glass windows.

However, the star of the show is definitely the extensive terrace bar. With an exclusive view of Birmingham’s growing skyline, the atmosphere of this Birmingham rooftop bar is unmatched.

For some much-needed relaxation head straight to this rooftop bar. Unfortunately, they do only cater to 21’s and over – so young'uns, you'll have to wait.
