Chinatown

 

A wander around Birmingham’s Chinatown takes in a myriad of restaurants and cafés offering authentic menus from Northern China all the way to Malaysia, with some of the city’s hippest nightspots in between. Feel like dancing off your dinner? If you’re into funky house, electro or a bit of fun-filled karaoke, Chinatown has the venue for you.

Chinatown is located just five minutes’ walk from New Street Station and is adjacent to the Bullring. Local landmarks include a stone pagoda, donated by a prominent local Chinese business as well as Chinese architectural flourishes around the Arcadian and surrounding area.

The area is home to a diverse range of businesses including restaurants, cafes, bars and bakeries. For a complete listing, please visit the Enjoy Southside website.
