The Bull’s Head is dead. Long live the Cuban Embassy! The heritage building at the heart of vibrant Moseley now houses Birmingham’s premier rum destination, with Latin musicians providing a live soundtrack.
After a painstaking refurbishment, everything from the intricate Spanish tiles to the wrought iron chandeliers recalls a moody Cuban nightspot.
Behind the bar, you’ll find a sprawling selection of over 130 rums. The bartenders are on hand not only to pour, but also to give tips and recommendations - they know their stuff here. After all, this is the home of the annual Birmingham Rum Festival.
Cocktails range from the Banana Daiquiri (£7) to the Cubata (£7) with aged rum and fresh lime. You could do far worse than a classic Ron Old Fashioned (£8), a time-honoured blend of Havana Club seven year-old rum, sugar, angostura bitters, orange zest and maraschino cherry.
The menu of tapas and small plates includes treats like Slow Cooked Beef Shin in a Rich Tomato Sauce (£5.95) and Lollipop Prawn in Honey Cake (£5.95)
