Tis the season to be jolly and with December on the horizon wine and dining at the Mailbox just got a whole lot better.
The shopping destination has announced the opening of a brand new concept, Bottles, which will open in time for Christmas.
Bottles Birmingham is due to open at the former Bar Epernay on Thursday, December 1, will be four times the size of its sister venue in Worcester, and will also feature a specially designed club room for private parties.
With large group tables, as well as smaller, intimate layouts for couples, Bottles Birmingham will help to make the exclusive wine world accessible to everyone.
Inspired by the popular wine region of Bordeau, France, Bottles Birmingham will bring an extensive range of more than 300 wines, ports and champagnes to Birmingham’s canalside. Served by the bottle or glass, guests have the opportunity to explore the state-of-the-art wine dispensing machines, offering a unique wine-tasting experience.
Whilst wine remains the focus at the heart of the Bottles experience, the bar will also serve a selection of bottled craft beers, cocktails, spirits, hot drinks and soft drinks, alongside an all-day food menu. Featuring a selection of contemporary dishes that focus on casual, social dining, like tapas, pintxos and sharing boards, you’ll also be able to enjoy brunch, afternoon tea and late-night nibbles seven days a week.
Melanie Taylor, head of retail relations at Milligan, joint owners of the Mailbox, said:
Bottles perfectly complements the existing portfolio of bars and restaurants at the Mailbox, and is further testament to the Mailbox’s reputation as a premier shopping and lifestyle destination.
The Mailbox is also gearing up to welcome restaurant, bar and deli, Tom’s Kitchen to its Level 2 Urban Room just in time for Christmas.
Founded by one of the UK’s most acclaimed and inspirational award-winning chefs, Tom Aikens, Tom’s Kitchen Birmingham will offer all-day dining, seven days a week, and will serve British favourites and comfort food classics in a relaxed and informal setting.
Caffé Nero will also open at the Mailbox later this month, as the European brand opens its fifth coffee house in Birmingham. Serving premium Italian coffee and food, the new café will be found on Level 3 of the Mailbox, next to the Advanced offices and opposite the BBC entrance.
