Discover Birmingham's beating heart - a hub of pubs, clubs and creativity.
A lot of (hip) locals regard Digbeth as the edgy heart and soul of the city, which generic high street stores have yet to infiltrate. New bands and DJs come here to air their creative talents, and no frills pubs host spontaneous folk sessions – especially if you happen to be in The Spotted Dog on Warwick St at the right time. The Custard Factory is buzzing with creativity, courtesy of the multimedia agencies, galleries and nightlclub (Air).
There are festivals too, like the annual Supersonic (three days of cutting edge guitar music, DJ sets and stalls selling vinyl) – and Flatpack (six days of film screenings, held here annually). If you’re feeling peckish after all that lot, take a side-step away from Digbeth and head to Water’s Edge, for lunch at the Handmade Burger Company – where you can polish off a ‘hot chilli’ burger while soaking up the waterfront view.
