Digbeth: An alternative side to Birmingham

Once the industrial centre of Birmingham, Digbeth is now known as the centre for creativity in the city.

From just looking at Digbeth whilst walking around its industrial streets, you may think that it looks a bit intimidating—and it can look like that on the outside—but this area is one of the most distinctive parts of the city and houses amazing design studios, art houses, independent shops, vintage cafes, music venues, delicious food and streets full of art and industrial heritage.

There is so much more than meets the eye in this colourful part of the city, here are some suggestions for places that you must visit in Digbeth.

Digbeth Dining Club

Birmingham’s original street food event brings people together from all over the city to enjoy amazing food each week from a range of international food vendors, partnered with live music and entertainment. The layout involves food carts scattered underneath a roof decorated with hanging fairy lights, which then follows through to two bars, Cafe Colette and Mama Roux’s which are both beautifully unique with a relaxed and chilled atmosphere. Located on Lower Trinity Street, Digbeth Dining Club is open every Thursday to Saturday opening at 4 pm until 11:45 pm.

Ghetto Golf

Crazy golf, cocktails, food and DJ’s....what more could you want? Ghetto Golf is the venue that offers you a great night out with the combination of an 18-hole crazy golf course, delicious drinks as well as street-food and music all packed inside a rustic, graffiti-covered building. This arty venue helps to promote the very best of street art. The food served offers a British take on American BBQ cuisine and is a great way to finish off your evening after your theatrical game of crazy golf.

Dig Brew Co

A post shared by Dig Brew Co. (@digbrewco) on

This microbrewery is a branch off of Mad O'Rourke's, which has been designed to have an open plan layout with five huge tanks seen visibly under the bar which are filled with freshly brewed beer and real ales. Inspired by the independent breweries in East London, the food available will be the entire Mad O'Rourke's Pie collection as well as 12 other dishes. Open from Thursday to Sunday from 12 noon until 12:30 am.
