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

May 11, 2021

Make some ‘broom’ for the new sport that’s taking Birmingham by storm. Why limit curling to the Winter Olympics, when we have six fantastic indoor and outdoor lanes at the CurlClub here at The Floodgate. It’s time to grab that curling stone by the horn and see whether you are cut out to be a curling Olympic champion!

Chess on ice was invented in Scotland in the 16th century and is popular in the UK as well as countries to which Scots have exported it, including Sweden, Canada, the USA, New Zealand & Switzerland. Over the years it has surged in popularity and developed a cult following from the Winter Olympics.

It’s the late 90’s / early 2000’s the clubbing scene in the UK is going strong, hands in the air not a mobile phone filming everyone’s antics in sight. The bars and clubs are full of people interacting and learning everything that their friends have done since last they met, pint in hand, smiles on faces and tunes soothing the soul.

If after a 13 month (feels like a lot longer) pause on life you are looking to get out of lockdown with a bang, you have certainly come to the right place. The Floodgate closed its doors on the 20th March 2020 due to the Covid-19 Pandemic Lockdown ordered by the Government. Although we briefly opened in the Summer we were soon shuttering up the shop again in November 2020 along with the rest of the country.

Hello, Floodgater's we hope you are all well. As the lockdown measures are easing we are gearing up to open The Yard at The Floodgate on the 12th April 2021. We want to ensure you have maximum fun while being safe in a Covid-Secure outdoor environment. Arguably the Best Beer Garden in Birmingham, you decide?

Human contact and a sense of community are important to mental health. Plan a route to a friend’s house to walk, and then on to The Floodgate to do some outdoor Baseball & Curling. You might be surprised how good it makes you feel. When you get outside of your house, it’s not only Mother Nature you see. You also connect more with the people and places in your community (& Digbeth).

We aim to make sure that you all have an absolute ball every time you visit The Floodgate! In the current circumstances, our main objective is that you can do that safely. Being covid safe means that we comply with a risk assessment that takes into account COVID-19. As such, it is critical that businesses take a range of measures to keep everyone safe. We understand how to work safely and keep our customers safe during this pandemic, ensuring as many people as possible comply with social distancing guidelines. There is also a wider system of enforcement, which includes specific obligations and conditions for licensed premises, under the National Restrictions, from 5th November. We understand how important our customers’ health and wellbeing is during the COVID-19 pandemic and will not contribute to the spread of the virus.

The best thing about a great night out is the experience, and the great memories you share with friends and loved ones. In the noise of city life, it’s hard to find somewhere unique, or with that special quirky quality or fun-packed edge to it. Sure, there’re bars, pubs, restaurants, however, sometimes those nights end up rolling into one, as they’re all very similar experiences, or rather lack of unique experiences, especially after a few years if you are living in the same town or city! Not only that, but some of us want a little bit more sometimes, and that’s where an activity night comes in. They always feel a little special, and that’s because they are. Designed to transport you to a different kind of world, or to engage you and your friends with brilliant games or challenges, whatever they are, they are lots of fun too!
