Proclaimed the World Gin Bar of the Year in 2019 by Gin Magazine, 40 St Paul’s proudly presents no fewer than 140 of the only very finest gins. This is a cosy and intimate spot overlooking St Paul’s Church on Birmingham’s last remaining Georgian square – and with just 24 seats, you might want to book ahead.
Birmingham may be best known for its classic Victorian boozers and real ale pubs, but its newer wave of cocktail spots and homely lounge bars are certainly worth their salt too. Revolutionary craft beer, endless gin lists, locally-themed cocktails and even a groundbreaking zero-waste bar: England’s second city really does have it all.
From the city centre’s heady mix of class and heritage to the Jewellery Quarter’s laid-back atmosphere and industrial past and Stirchley’s forward-thinking cocktail and brewing prowess, this city is no longer overlooked. So, head here with an open mind. These are the best bars in Birmingham right now.
