The Mailbox

One of Birmingham’s most exclusive lifestyle and shopping destinations...

 

At The Mailbox you'll find exclusive stores, waterside restaurants, cafe bars, hotels, salons and galleries and the BBC public space, where you can go behind the scenes and see programmes broadcast live.

The Mailbox opened in 1998 and was the redevelopment of the former Royal Mail sorting office. Now it is the UK’s largest mixed-use building incorporating retail, leisure, offices and apartments.

Waterside restaurants at The MailboxAlready home to luxury brands and designer stores including Harvey Nichols, Emporio Armani, Malmaison and Hugo Boss; the latest arrival at the Mailbox is The Cube. The Cube is a spectacular multimillion pound development which boasts a stunning £12m rooftop Marco Pierre White restaurant, Adee Phelan hair salon, Hotel Indigo, luxury Club and Spa as well as spectacular apartments, shops and much more.

The Mailbox’s waterside location has become Birmingham’s most sophisticated dining quarter. There are over sixteen restaurants to choose from with Thai, Japanese, Indian, Mediterranean, British European and Tapas amongst the menus to choose from.

Just a few minutes’ walk along the canal towpath from Broad Street; or through the vibrant shopping streets from the Bullring, The Mailbox is Birmingham’s ultimate stylish and cosmopolitan destination for shopaholics and foodies alike.
