Fancy trying something new this month? Birmingham is brimming with new restaurants, bars and cafés. From a bar bringing a unique roller skating experience to a restaurant serving up plant-based dishes and tropical drinks, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking your next food and drink adventure. So, without further ado, here’s our guide to some of the very best new restaurants, bars and cafés to try in Birmingham this June.
1. Crazy Pedro’s
This June, the pizza restaurant loved by Northerners, Crazy Pedro’s, will be opening its doors in Digbeth, taking over a super cool 5000sq ft space in The Custard Factory. Renowned for its headline grabbing pizza creations such as Crème Eggs on pizza and Chippy Tea with curry sauce, the late night party bar will be serving up 16” New York style pizzas all day with slices available until 3am. Crazy Pedro’s also specialises in all things tequila and mezcal, showcasing one of the largest agave collections in the UK, and the Digbeth venue, will be serving up frozen Margaritas on tap 7 days a week.
2. Roller Jam
Birmingham’s first designated roller disco, Roller Jam, is set to open in Digbeth on June 10, which will include multiple bars selling cocktails and more, where you can overlook the skating arena. You’ll find a spacious skating rink with private booths, live DJs, stage shows, immersive sound, electrifying light and laser shows, large cinematic screens, The Funky Bear Diner, plus a mezzanine platform for you to chill out with a drink or two with friends whilst taking in the dramatic views of the historic canals of Digbeth. And if skating isn’t your thing and you don’t want to risk face-planting in front of your friends, then you also have fun at Roller Jam’s pool tables, air hockey tables and arcade area too.
A brand new wine experience is coming to Birmingham this summer, with works now underway at the highly-anticipated bar and latest addition to Paradise Birmingham, Vinoteca. Priding itself on working closely with producers to curate one of the UK’s most extensive wine lists, including 60 organic, biodynamic and sustainable selections. As well as an award-winning wine list featuring more than 200 bins from across the world, the 4,500 sq. ft restaurant will serve seasonal British dishes using locally sourced produce, with a weekly set lunch menu designed especially for Birmingham by the venue’s head chef.
Inspired by the gypsy culture of Andalusia, Alioli serves up pas food that sparks passion and artistic energy among diners. Named after a favourite Spanish sauce, primarily made of garlic and enjoyed alongside all dishes, Alioli will also be serving up five variations of the sauce from one with black cuttlefish ink to smoked red paprika. The Solihull restaurant also offers a tapas experience where guests can share a set menu of ten of the most popular dishes like Padrón peppers and ham croquetas to get a real taste of the Spanish cuisine.

Tuck into the likes of vegan calamari with a Kraken rum glaze, banana blossom bowl and sweetcorn fritattas and desserts such as lime and coconut cake and banana and rum loaf. Junglebird also offers a bottomless brunch where you can enjoy one of their hearty mains or two small plates alongside unlimited cocktails, mimosas, beers, mocktails and softs for two hours.
