With the sun occasionally creeping out and British Summer time here, a drink at one of the rooftop bars in Birmingham is definitely overdue after the bitterly cold winter- and we’ve got to make the most of the warm weather. Here are some of the best rooftop bars in Birmingham for you to visit and take in insane views of the city.
Located in the Jewellery Quarter, this restored factory building is great for al fresco bottomless brunch. The Button Factory’s brickwork gives the bar its charm and has a New York loft-style feel to it. The rooftop terrace offers ample seating with umbrellas as well as views across the Jewellery Quarter and beyond. There’s nothing quite like sipping a Bellini and tucking into some waffles with views of the Library of Birmingham and Chamberlain’s Clock in the distance.

Decked out with golden pods, thick blankets for those chilly evenings and a beautiful views of Birmingham – Sky By The Water at Resorts World Birmingham serves up an array of drinks that are great for both dates and nights out with your household bubble or friends, with a lengthy menu featuring a little something for everyone. A recent addition to their menu is their Jaffa Cake ball cocktail featuring Jaffa Cake gin, Aperol, orange juice and cinnamon syrup, giving us all the nostalgic feels.

Another Jewellery Quarter favourite, this classic-looking pub is an absolute suntrap come summer time. And come the evening, the Church Inn puts on the light bulbs hanging above the rooftop garden creating a chilled atmosphere. An Aperol Spritz on one of the pub’s benches here will make you wish that summer never ends. If you’ve feel you’ve had too much sun, you can take refuge at their sports bar with a number of live sports matches being shown here.

With all that time indoors over the past few months, you might as well treat yourself to some views that aren’t from your window. The Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill is situated on the top floor of The Cube, and is one of the only rooftop bars in Birmingham where you can experience 360 degree panoramic views of the city. Locals are torn as to whether they love or loathe The Cube’s exterior design, but the views on the other hand, are hands down impressive. Add an extensive menu of drinks to choose from like Champagne, Prosecco, Pornstar Martinis, followed by a meal whether its a steak or afternoon tea, it’ll be a pretty special post-lockdown experience.

This canalside pub offers tranquil spots looking out out at the water as you sip a pint or two. The Malt House has balconies which act as their rooftop terrace, which are draped in fairy lights bringing some magic to Brum. In summertime, the canal area really comes alive and it will be great to witness the hubbub of both this pub and Birmingham area after a year of restrictions and difficult times. Cheers to that!
75 King Edwards Road, B1 2NX
Opening towards the end of 2019, this stylish venue on Colmore Row has the feel of a traditional cocktail bar. However, climb up the winding, spiral staircase of this Birmingham bar and you will discover a magnificent rooftop terrace. Henman and Cooper’s rooftop has two tiers of space in which to stand or sit, as well as little snug areas, and the décor is a mix of elegance and laidback vibes. The bar overlooks the city centre and business district and even has an underground basement with more seating available there.
