Going to Birmingham this weekend to Opheem for a nice meal. I'm looking to book a table somewhere afterwards for nice cocktails. Can anyone recommend anywhere please? We're staying at the Hyatt. Happy to get Ubers if needed.

The Alchemist is tonnes of fun, or the Botanist is lovely.

What kind of price point are you looking at?

Don't mind price point as it's a special occasion.. we're having dinner a Michelin star place and want to go somewhere nice after.
Just think I will probably need to book.

Yes I like alchemist and botanist, something along those lines would be nice .. they are chains and we have both in our local city, is there anywhere a bit more of an independent vibe that do similar type drinks/vibe?

The Old Joint Stock is very nice

I think these meet your criteria but I haven’t checked if they have availability or are doing bookings etc sorry:

Dishoom is a 5 minute walk from Opheem and does drinks and cocktails.

40 St Paul’s in the Jewellery Quarter is a 10 minute walk from Opheem and probably has the most extensive and interesting cocktail menu in the city, but it’s small so may not have the buzz you are looking for. There’s also St Paul’s House nearby that’s bigger and very nice so you could do both.

On Colmore Row which is a bit nicer you have the Alchemist. You could walk there from Opheem.

There’s also Marco Pierre White’s on the top floor of the Cube whixh you’d probably want to get an Uber to which is expensive but within stumbling distance of the Hyatt afterwards. There’s also a couple of places nearby like Aluna and Chez Mal.

If you do want to go out out after, then there are a few bars like the Botanist, Revolution De Cuba, the Lost and Found, Dirty Martini, at Be At One based around Temple Street / New Street.

I’ll carry on thinking and let me know if you have any other questions about places to go

How could I forget Ginger’s in Purnell’s Bistro - it fits in with your Michelin star venue as it’s owned by Glyn Purnell who has a star for his main restaurant!

@BlackCatsRule88 you are a star! Thank you very much!

Nice coffee/brunch places are York’s - there’s one on Stephenson Street near Grand Central and one at the Ikon Gallery
- or Medicine Bakery on New Street. All are near your hotel.

If it’s nice give yourself 15 mins to sit people watching outside at the fountains at Centenary Square which is just outside your hotel. In the sunshine it can be Birmingham’s most joyful bit IMHO.

Ah - and other tip, although it’s very close to you, AVOID the bars on Broad Street! It’s about as far from classy as it’s possible to get...,

Arch 13 is a great little place.
