You’ll have to leave the city centre for this one, but it’s well worth it for a lively and casual night out at one of Birmingham’s most exciting neighbourhood venues.
The Bull’s Head is in Moseley, a famously bohemian and eclectic area that’s situated at the end of the high street, closely neighbouring a gourmet deli and a shop selling magic charms.
Music is far and away the name of the game; throughout the week, a series of live gigs and takeovers bring everything from soul and reggae to disco and indie rock. If you live in Birmingham, chances are you’ll know someone who knows someone who’s played here.
The vibe is upbeat and the crowd is young – particularly on Friday and Saturday nights, when the upstairs nightclub area is generally taken over by a bearded DJ and the beats start to drop.
Beers can be as cheap as £2.50 on some nights, while a bottle of house wine is around the £8 mark.
