Birmingham is a fantastic location for a hen night, with a spectacular range of options you and the girls will be in for an unforgettable evening. Sample the exclusively arranged hen night delights of Birmingham's many bars, restaurants, clubs and venues we've coordinated especially for you and the girls. From the boogie bus to karaoke bars, Birmingham offers something for every hen night group!
When it comes to revelry and mischief on your Birmingham hen night, Broad Street is the place you want to be, with over 40 bars, clubs & restaurants all in one place, there really is something for every group to enjoy. You and the girls can start the evening by relaxing over a cocktail or two in one of the many fantastic loft style bars to be found in the city, an Australian themed joint and one which specialises solely in music from the 80s and 90s. Perfect! If you're looking for something a little more stylish, take a quick stroll over to The Mailbox, home to countless designer shops as well as the BBC Midlands Today broadcasting studio and stylish spots to enjoy a special meal and some posh cocktails. In between the two lies the award-winning Island Bar which provides rocking tunes and a funky interior as well as yummy mixed drinks.
Nothing funny about it, Birmingham boasts a total of three fantastic comedy clubs. Having a good laugh is a sure-fire way to get your weekend off to a good start and keep everyone smiling well into the night. It's pretty hard to miss, but make sure that you check out the Bullring's iconic Selfridges building, totally silver, modern and space age - it looks beautiful by night, so snap some pictures in front of this landmark in your glad rags. And, of course, no trip to Brum would be complete without a picture next to the famous brass bullring bull! Honestly, he just loves the attention.
It's likely that you and the girls will spend most of your time on Broad Street and at The Mailbox, both of which are very close together, so you'll be able to walk everywhere you need to be easily. If your heels are killing you or you need to take a longer journey and don't fancy the walk, there's plenty of public transport options on offer to help you around the large city. Hop on one of the radial West Midlands buses, or if it's after midnight, hail a cab. Choose from one of GoHen's trusted taxi companies and consider pre-booking at weekends, as services are likely to be busy.
The live music scene is alive and well in buzzing Birmingham. Step just 800 paces from the Bullring to the funky Custard Factory in the city's cultural quarter. Originally an actual custard factory owned by Sir Alfred Bird of Bird's custard (he invented the gloopy yellow stuff), it now plays host to Birmingham's newest musical talent and is a great place to see live bands play. When it comes to clubs, Birmingham has it all. Hang out in trendy party hotspots which play the hottest, newest tunes on the scene headed by big popular DJs. There are stylish, plush clubs for those looking for a special, luxurious night out with cocktails and bottles of fancy champagne. For hardcore clubbers, a couple of nightclubs offer loud and proud trance, dance and traditional club beats as well as many student friendly clubs which promise great drinks deals and a youthful, fun-loving crowd. Various party spots stay open until the early hours, offering indie, drum & bass and throbbing house. You can even belt out some cheesy karaoke tunes and dance to 80s and 90s hits - phew! A hen night in Birmingham is full-on fabulous.
Birmingham locals or ‘Brummies' as they're affectionately known, like a taste of the high life, so expect to find cocktails, bubbly and fancy spirits around all the local club bars. To mention but a few specialist bars which offer something a little out of the ordinary, try out Bacchus on New Street, close to the station. The resident bar in a swanky 4 star hotel, the entire joint is Roman, Ancient Greek and Egyptian themed, from the pillars and statues to the tomb and engravings and offers appropriately themed wines and inspired cocktails. Chi on Newhall Street on the other hand is a New York Loft style restaurant lounge which serves not only yummy cocktails - ours is a Manhattan - but also offers a jacuzzi! Decadence at its finest.
Birmingham's cuisine hardly needs an introduction, as it's been named ‘curry capital' of the UK time and time again and is the birthplace of the balti! The ‘balti triangle' is a must-visit and stretches between Ladypool Road and Stratford road for around 2 miles and includes an incredible 50 curry houses! However, if you don't fancy a spicy meal, the city is so multicultural that you and your group can experience delicious authentic international meals all around the city of Birmingham. Head to Brindley Place for a wide range of eateries or the Bullring if you're looking for a group-pleasing chain restaurant option.
