Bars & Cafes
Surrounded by the South Staffordshire boundary, The Crooked House is a unique and distinctive public house in Himley. The house is approximately 4 feet (1.22 meters) raised from the ground level from one side because of mining subsidence in the 19th Century. It was originally used as a farmhouse and later became a public house (Siden House). The site is the popular place to visit, and currently operates as a restaurant and a pub ideal for families and groups. Visit the website for more.
If you're looking for a variety of quality malt whiskeys and chilled beer, you should head to the Starving Rascal. The bar possesses a traditional ambiance with a fairly noisy clientele and a friendly staff; also, the bar does serves some delicious bar food. It's a fun place to hang out with your friends.
Rose & Crown is an old pub in Wolverhampton. Part of the local pub chain, the pub is one of the few ale houses in the city. A fine and varied collection of beer and wine along with delicious food, makes the pub a favorite local hang-out. Along with live music, the pub also has regular theme nights.
There are only a couple of pubs in Bearwood, which is odd considering its size but the Bear is thankfully well worth visiting. It may not look particularly inspiring, and there's nothing too distinctive about the beer or food here, but it is likable and sells itself on its music and comedy nights. These occur most weekends, but ring in advance for details. Birmingham itself does not have too many comedy venues, so it's worth cherishing this one.
A large, old-fashioned pub on the main route west out of the city, the Dog is favored by old Irish types so consequently does a good line in Guinness. Other beers are your staple Birmingham brews, but they are well kept. There is a certain shabby gentility about the place that's hard to dislike, but if you favor lots of shiny brass and polished wood floors, it's best to stick to Broad Street.
On the road connecting Harborne with its poor relation, Bearwood, this is a large pub cum restaurant that is family-friendly, but with areas mercifully free of screaming kids. It's packed with comfy armchairs and sofas and although it's huge, manages to maintain a homely feel. There are few gimmicks, and the restaurant menu is hardly adventurous, but it still packs in the punters on Friday and Saturday nights. The best night is Thursday when a professional DJ hosts an excellent quiz - there are cash and alcoholic prizes and you get a free curry.
Gothic facade, plenty of drinks and good music are hallmarks of The Giffard Arms. Sip on a drink and groove to the tunes churned out by the resident DJ as you meet new people. Let your hair down at one of their themed events as you let the spirit of the night overwhelm you! Enjoy the Dark Room weekends, Core Metal or Pure Silver nights and you will want to come back for more. Check website for more details on current and upcoming events.
One of the finest weekend destinations in the city, this place has a very fashionable crowd. Reasonably priced drinks and a cool ambiance define the place. The decor is bright and fancy with an innovative lighting pattern. A dance floor with cobblestones is another attractive attribute of the place. The music is mostly indie and alternative but sometimes there are wider choices. A cool place to hang out with friends on a Friday evening.
Located in the city center, Varsity bar is a part of the Varsity chain of bars. Varsity in Wolverhampton is a cool, luxurious and comfortable hang-outs. This two-storey air-conditioned bar also serves multi-cuisine preparations including meals and desserts. The pub has an event room which is one of the most popular local party destinations.

Located at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall, the Civic Hall Bar is less of a bar and more of an entertaining home. The interiors of this bar are quite elegantly done decorated with fragments of contemporary art. The seating arrangement is well-organized, while the atmosphere is quite laid back and relaxed. The bar like any other serves a variety of exotic cocktails and mocktails, along with some delicious quick bites. Now, the main USP of this bar is the perpetual supply of entertainment; comedy nights, live bands, musicals, plays and more. Thanks to this concept, the bar is doing really well over the years. Do pay this bar a visit, even if you don't drink.
The restaurant at Liberty's gets busy not just because of its Anglo-French cuisine but also because diners gain free admission to the nightclub next door. The food is well prepared and of gourmet standard, but be prepared to pay over GBP20 per head, without wine. That said, a three course meal from the more limited a la carte menu is available. There's a piano bar here, too, if you fancy a touch of luxury without spending an arm and a leg on grub.
Whether it is to grab a quick bite or to feast on an elaborate meal, Regency at Ely House Hotel offers you all kinds of dishes. It offers classic British fare and the menu changes every three weeks. Don't forget to partake of the traditional Sunday lunch to feast on some contemporary cuisine. And if you have a private event you want to host, look no further.
