The Rose Villa Tavern – Charming pubs don’t come much more interesting than The Rose Villa Tavern in Birmingham’s dazzling Jewellery Quarter. This pub is a whirling haven of rich leather chairs, impressive antler chandeliers and charismatic tilework from floor to ceiling. A vintage Victorian mecca, The Grade II listed building welcomes everyone from the young and trendy, the cool to the sophisticated. Those who want something a little different from their Birmingham pubs will find The Rose Villa Tavern to be a refreshing and welcoming venue to visit. The pub also has an upstairs venue for everything from party hire to comedy nights.
The Prince of Wales may seem like a traditional pub at the front of the building, but you’ll find all sorts of intriguing ventures at the end of its labyrinth. From a cigar shop/humidor to an old-fashioned and quaint cocktail lounge, this place feels infinite. Head even further into the pub garden and you’ll find a tiki bar. The Prince of Wales has built their very own garden tiki bar with sand and tasty cocktails to boot.
Lovingly adopted by the same person who designed other local pubs, The Village is set to boast the same charm and unusual interiors with an up and coming air of gastro flair. Keeping the buildings’ traditional features whilst adding some idiosyncrasies, The Village looks made to be home to a collection of vintage upholstery from a new dining room and bar lounge area to a rustic garden.
The Jewellery Quarter may be a hub for all things fancy, but The Lord Clifden comes as an original and creative take on this glitzy district with its art-adorned walls. From Banksy to Nick Walker to Obey, this bar is full of both Birmingham’s and the UK’s finest urban talent. Thanks to this collection, it’s no surprise that the city’s young and diverse crowd flock to see the work and take in something a little different; their beer garden a quirky must.
