For those that can’t get their groove on unless indie or alternative music is playing, Snobs Nightclub near Digbeth has long been heralded as a favourite for Brummie clubbers.

The Gay Village

The Gay Village

The Loft is situated right in between the Gay Village and the Chinese Quarter and is a great venue to start the night off. The decor has an industrial feel with exposed brick walls and stripped wood, and there’s an outdoor area equipped with a gazebo and fairy lights, creating a laid-back vibe for summer.
