The Bureau has been on Colmore Row in Birmingham City Centre since October 2013. Housed in a beautiful grade II- listed building built in 1902-04 it has been a place to be seen in The Colmore Business District.
It has a main bar and a cocktail bar and downstairs a basement lounge area which has its own bar area and can be used for private functions.
The Bureau is known not only for its drinks but for its hip bar deli food with a difference. Small plates of food both meat options and good veggie options. A menu demonstrates thought and skill and with a choice of five for £10 is decent value.
On the 26th June 2014 The Bureau will open its roof terrace to the public. Birmingham is not blessed with roof terraces, but The Bureau promises to set the highest tone of indulgence and offer a sophisticated place to drink and eat and just in time for the summer weather. Their will be a weekly barbecue on offer and a well stocked bar to tempt and delight.
It’s set to open as the Langley’s No 8 Gin Roof Terrace (distilled near Oldbury).
Also, there are plans for a second floor bar and a mezzanine level conference rooms.
The success of The Bureau up to now is based around its aims to create a friendly and social environment where guests can indulge in locally produced and regional sourced food including many veggie options ( see my review soon).
The owners from Birmingham Paul Rutter and Zack Foley have certainly created a buzzy hospitable space.
As a bonus with the Independent Birmingham members card a 10% discount is given.
The Bureau has won many awards including ‘Hidden Gem Award’ from fantastic bar website Design My Night’s users.
The Bureau is a place for deli food and drink already, but the terrace should make it a place to enjoy the summer months much more.
