That said we have been looking for a perfect site in Birmingham for a long time so the decision was straightforward. It’s a pop up to start off with, it’ll allow us to feel our way. It’s a different vibe Bavarian bar for us and we will do everything possible to add something new and complementary to emerging scene in Digbeth. We have had such a warm welcome from our new neighbours. Early days but it feels great to be here."
