Secret Birmingham Secret Birmingham


Grab some food and cocktails with your mates at these lovely outdoor bars and restaurants.

Now that we can all meet our mates outdoors again (in groups of six or as two households) we just can’t stop planning catch-ups over alfresco cocktails and food. But if you still need some inspo when it comes to outdoor spots to visit, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together a list of open-air bars and restaurants in the city that are serving up delicious drinks in lush, leafy settings. Enjoy Havana Club daiquiris, Lillet Spritzes, Beefeater Negronis and all your favourite summer specials at these lovely outdoor food and drink spots!

A visit to Dishoom will transport you straight to Bombay through the power of incredible Indian comfort food. And if you’re looking for the perfect cocktail to complement your mouthwatering meal, try a Negroni made with Beefeater Gin.

If you’re celebrating a special occasion, or just feel like getting a little fancy, the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill is just the place. Located at the top of The Cube building, you’ll be served spectacular panoramic views of the city alongside your steaks and cocktails. Choose your drinks from the spritz menu for a summer-y touch – we highly recommend the Lillet Spritz!
