Birmingham's Best Value Night Out: Why Floodgate Reigns Supreme

Feb 25, 2022

What a ride it has been for Tommy Shelby & Family over the past 9 years

Peaky Blinders came to our screens on the 12th September 2013 and entertained us on our sofas not only up and down the country but across the globe. With an amazing cast including Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy & Helen McCrory (RIP) to name a few, we fell for the Shelby Family.

Episode 1 Season 6 hits our screens on Sunday 27th February at 9pm, so get the popcorn ready and pop that flat cap, baker boy or news boy cap on (optional).

The Floodgate have a special connection to Peaky Blinders, not only does Floodgate Street host th...

Congratulations to our amazing womens curling team who went to Beijing to win the biggest title of them all, Olympic Gold.

It was estimated that over 700k people tuned in from the UK to watch the match that started around 1am (GMT). Eve Muirhead, Vicky Wright, Jen Dodds, and Hailey Duff took to the ice to face their formidable oponent Japan in the final. 

The road to the final had not been easy, with the team having Covid in December, loosing 4 round robin qulaifying matches and were even 4-0 down in the semi final against Sweden. But when it mattered most they dug deep and delivered some stun...

All through the noughties there has been an ongoing grape war playing out on bar and dining room tables up and down the country.

Its is of course related to those of you with a fizzy persuasion when it comes to your wine

Team Italy, Team France, Team Dry, Team Sweet and probably another 100 teams to follow. Which bench do you sit on (not the park bench we hope)? 

We are obviosuly impartial here at The Floodgate and we love them so much that we of course keep both ice cold in our fridges, so next time you are in Digbeth why not pop into the most quirky Champagne & Prosecco bar in Birmingham.

What better way to get 'Love Season' underway than with a brand new exclusive drink the Valentines.

Team Floodgate have been experimenting with our love potion to bring you something Stong, Sweet and smooth (just like your partner) for 2022.

Following The Floodgate new cocktail rule book step one is only ever use premium ingredients, thats why we have gone with the one and only AU Red Cherry, combined with Disaronno, Lime Juice, Cranberry Juice & Apple Juice. A true tastebud extravaganza. Before you ask, ofcourse it is finished of with a 'Cherry on Top' (pun totally intended).

So get down to t...

After the huge success of our very own Bleachers Beer that we launched back in 2019 Team Floodgate have been working away in the background on a new draught offering for 2022. You could even say we have been comparing apples with apples (drum roll please). 

With that in mind and as spring and summer is just around the corner (aka cider season) we are very pleased to annouce PitPat Press Cider which is now flowing freely at The Floodgate. Coming in at a refeshing 4.5% abv it is a medium dry cider with no artificial flavours or sweeteners.

So next time you are around the Custard Factory in Digbe...

There are not too many better endorsements out there in the leisure & tourism space than the one and only Lonely Planet

We are super excited for 2022 now that Floodgate Street & one of our resident artists have been included in 'The 15 most fun things to do in Birmingham'.

In our opinion this is long over due (obviously we are bias) as we love the Custard Factory in Digbeth and think Floodgate Street is the top on the pops. 

So dont take our word for it, listen to Lonely Planet and get your fine selves down to Floodgate Street to check out The Floodgate and discover not only the best Cocktails...

Happy January Birmingham,

Now that the final covid restrictions seem to be finally ending, we will all hopefully start emerging from what seems like a very long hibernation.

The winter months can be hard for many reasons, its cold, its dark and its damp. Most of us also had next to no Christmas Parties in 2020 & 2021 (unless your name is Boris Johnson). However we are here to tell you there is light at the end of the tunnel (quite literaly). You may have noted this week that the sun is hanging a little bit longer in the sky and the light is staying a tad longer, almost enough for some after wo...
