The Seriously Photogenic Bar Tonight Josephine Has Arrived In Birmingham

Tonight Josephine is perfect for cocktails and hedonism.

When it comes to pink perfection, one bar is queen of them all. The most outlandish offering from the Adventure Bar team, Tonight Josephine is a fuchsia temple to hedonism and femininity, bedecked in neon and glitter. And now it’s coming to Birmingham!

An invitation here is an invitation to do exactly as you please, whether that be classy or downright debauched. At Tonight Josephine, there’s only one rule: you do you.


From May 22, you’re invited to Tonight Josephine as they host a number of boozy and brilliant events. Grab your girl gang and get ready for a good time in a fun and safe environment that will make you forget all the crazy nonsense that 2020 and the start of this year has served up. Feeling lucky? Tonight Josephine is hosting a Burlesque Ball where you can sip on bottomless prosecco and Pornstar Martinis.

Tonight Josephine is inspired by the first Empress of France, Josephine de Beauharnais, the famed nineteenth-century party animal and wife of Napoleon. Here she is, with absolutely no time for haters.

Josephine was smart, beautiful, and talked her way out of her appointment with the guillotine. She also gave literally zero fucks about what people thought of her, an attitude which the bar has kept alive. It certainly explains why Tonight Josephine’s greeting is a favoured quote of Kate Moss: “why the fuck can’t I have fun all the time?”

This is a pretty appropriate motto for Tonight Josephine, where neon slogans to girl power stretch as far as the eye can see.

Between the glittering pink walls, mirror ceilings, and the red roses adorning Tonight Josephine’s ‘Lady Garden’, the whole place is an Instagrammer’s paradise.

Step into the bathroom and you’ll find even more attitude. Police mugshots of rule-breaking celebrities adorn the doors, so if you’ve ever wanted a picture with Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, or Justin Bieber, here is your chance.

Tonight Josephine’s outlandishness extends to the cocktail menu. The sweet-sounding No Time For Napoleon is served with a macaroon on top, and the Midnight Flower blends gin, pineapple juice, and lavender syrup. Catching the eye, however, is the Flaming Zombie. Three types of rum piques interest, and the whole thing is set on fire for d-r-a-m-a. Not for the faint of heart!

To kick things off, the bar is hosting the sexiest Burlesque Ball in Birmingham and serving up a bottomless brunch too. Expect tasty treats, bubbles by the bucket load and a provocative brunch that’s sure to ruffle some feathers. Find your tickets here. Get your party shoes ready from the back of the cupboard, because Sin-derella must go to this ball.

Tonight Josephine is the perfect place for your bande de filles to set up camp. From bingo and bottomless prosecco to Burlesque brunches, you’ll want to call this fuchsia temple home. Gentlemen are obviously welcome too, but they’ll need to be as fearless and fabulous as the ladies to get in, because this place does nothing by half. Peace out, queens!

Tonight Josephine is opening in May at Unit 12, The Burlington, Stephenson Street, B2 4BL. It’s open Monday to Thursday, 4pm–10pm; Friday to Sunday, 2pm-10pm.
