Joe Dolman | The Sunflower Lounge | Tuesday
Who doesn’t love a night of live music? This week, our favourite indie music venue, The Sunflower Lounge, is welcoming Joe Dolman, a 22-year-old singer/songwriter whose voice we’ve grown to love here in the Style HQ.
Joe’s last tour completely sold out, and he’s certainly one to watch having made appearances at the BBC’s Biggest Weekend and festivals including The Great Escape and Wilderness Festival. He’ll be joined at his intimate gig by Will Naisbitt and Birmingham-based singer Ellie Poole.
Enjoy Some Darts | Flight Club | All Week!
If you thought that darts was a sport that belonged in slightly run-down pubs, think again. Birmingham recently welcomed Flight Club, a brand new addition to the ever-growing nightlife scene on Temple Street, and it’s rapidly becoming our new favourite alternative night out in the city.
The ‘Social Darts’ bar has brought the sport up-to-date with incredible technology that keeps a track of your score so you can enjoy some drinks with you pals without having to worry about clocking up the points on a chalkboard. Plus, there a range of games to choose from that are guaranteed to bring out the competitive side in even the most relaxed people.
It’s super stylish, offers delicious food and drink – all of which can be ordered from your independent oche at the push of a button – and is already proving to be a huge hit just a few weeks after opening its doors.
So if you fancy a night – or afternoon – out on in the town with a twist, gather your friends and head down to Flight Club for a few games, or enjoy a drink in the bar area. Click here to for more info and to book an oche.
Solve Along Murder, She Wrote | Mama Roux’s | Thursday
Do you see yourself as a bit of a detective? This Thursday, head to Mama Roux’s and engage in an interactive screening of Murder, She Wrote.
Hosted by Murder, She Wrote super-fan, Tim Benzie, the evening will include a screening of the classic episode Jessica Behind Bars, where it will be a race for you to solve the crime. Plus, it’ll feature a host of games, prizes and audience participation. So if you fancy celebrating one of the greatest Whodunnit shows of the 80s, grab your tickets now!
The Jerk Festival | Quantum, Upper Trinity Street | Saturday
What’s a week in the city without some delicious food and drink? On Saturday, the mighty Taste and Liquor are back with a brand new foodie event for you to sink your teeth into, as they bring a taste of the Caribbean to the Second City with Birmingham’s very first Jerk Festival.
Throughout the day you can indulge in a range of Jamaican culinary delights including barbecued chicken and pork, rice and peas, vanilla-infused dumplings, all washed down with a rum cocktail.
