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.
Due to a lack of good medium-sized venues in Birmingham, the vast majority of bands that aren't big enough for the NEC will stop off at Wolverhampton's Civic Hall.

The hall also houses the Civic Hall Bar, a place more for music than drinking. Wolverhampton is only 20 minutes on the train from New Street, and the Civic Hall is a further five minutes' walk once you're there. Check the music or local press for details of forthcoming acts.
