Cocktails are just one of many things that Birmingham does incredibly well.

To introduce myself, I’m Alex – a Birmingham convert. I moved up here about 2 years ago and had no idea what to expect. I settled myself in the JQ and fell totally in love with our dear city.

The great choice of bars and restaurants certainly helped…..

My first brummy cocktail adventure was a trip to Lost and Found – I was suitably happy. My bar discoveries had started strong. Then came Bodega to re-live the distant memory of my South America trip. And the fun just kept coming! Bureau, Fumo, Gingers, The Victoria, Rose Villa Tavern….I was spoilt with choice.

I’m still exploring to this day – but what is incredibly clear is that Birmingham can definitely hold its own. The mixology is innovative and the choice of venues is vast. Birmingham Cocktail Weekend is going to celebrate all that is great about the Birmingham Cocktail Scene. It’ll be a chance to try new cocktails, an excuse to explore new venues and I really can’t wait!

In the run up to the July event, this blog is going to feature #birmingham #bloggers who know a thing or two about:
  • Cocktails
  • Birmingham

…and making the most of the great food and drink scene that our city has to offer. Don’t be shy. If you want to blog for us or have an idea for a post, just get in touch
