The best 2-4-1 cocktail bars in Birmingham

We all love a good cocktail. What we don't love about a good cocktail, however, is the flippin' price.

And as students, slowly drifting towards our overdrafts, we'd rather not splash out £8 on a single drink. That's why the happy hour is our new best friend. Cheap and cheerful, we all need a good happy hour to rely on. And Birmingham has plenty, thankfully. Here's the ultimate round-up of the best happy hour deals in Birmingham:

Be At One 

With over 150 cocktails on the menu (say whaaat) Be At One allows you 2-for-1 cocktails, from 4:30 pm until 8 pm Monday to Wednesday, and from 4:30 pm until 7 pm Thursday to Saturday. A lively bar, with chatty bar staff and neon signs decorating the walls, this is a perfect evening setup.

The Jekyll and Hyde

Bathtub cocktailzzzzzz ??

A post shared by Chelsea White (@chelzzz__) on

Mixology at its finest, The Jekyll and Hyde provide some crazily creative cocktails, often coming displayed in a wee bathtub, or watering can. (I know, as you do.) The even better thing about this colourful joint is that there aren't any crazy prices. Every day from 12-7 pm you can indulge in 2-for-£9 for all confectionary cocktails and all remedial refreshments are 2-4-£10 from 7 pm until close every Thursday.

Island Bar

Now, the wonderful Island Bar really won't break the bank, whatsoever. A refreshing (and incredibly cheap) take on happy hour, Island Bar serves up selected cocktails for 2-4-£9 during selected times; their happy hour runs from 5-8 pm on Saturdays and all night on Thursdays, but if you head up to the Tiki Bar happy hour is from 8-10pm both Friday and Saturday nights.

Walkabout Birmingham

caught red-handed ❤️??

A post shared by ☁️ ????? ? (@bonjourheidi) on

This Australian-themed bar chain can be found in many a UK city, so if you're wanting something to remind you of back home in your local city, Walkabout can offer up here. From Monday through to Friday, you're able to snap up 2-for-1 drinks, across all beverages. Yaaaas.

The Rose Villa Tavern 

Not only does this quirky pub offer amazing happy hour deals, but it's also a discount haven for food deals as well! You can get 2-4-£9 cocktails during happy hour, this runs every day from 4-7 pm, and from 10 pm until close Monday - Thursday, but on Friday's happy hour runs from 4 pm until they close on Sunday.
