A guide to Prosecco
It’s not what prosecco you are drinking it’s where you are drinking it!
At Visit Birmingham we take our jobs very seriously and unfortunately I had to spend my time tirelessly trying prosecco in bars to find my top places. It was a gruelling task but I managed to compete it.
I am of course joking, this was not work but simply me going about my normal weekend activity. I am unashamed to admit that I am one of those people who has become obsessed with prosecco, like a large proportion of the British public. I might have even done a bulk buy when those vicious rumours of a prosecco shortage were spread.
Though I am not claiming to be any type of connoisseur, like most people it is the environment that makes it an enjoy experience. So do not expect me to explain fancy floral notes but just where I like to enjoy my favourite tipple the most.
Park Regis - Brand spanking new and a stunner of a hotel, this classy modern venue is a must. Whilst sat in the beautiful 1565 bar you will instantly gravitate to the fantastic balcony area which offers some fabulous view of the city. If you’re looking for a summer time venue for prosecco drinking then Park Regis ticks all the boxes. £8 per glass £22 per bottle.
Bar Opus - This is in the cosmopolitan Colmore Row area, so the preferred location for business bods to enjoy prosecco. A mid-week after work prosecco can be fully enjoyed in this cool classy setting. £6 per glass £30 per bottle.
Selfridges - The ideal prosecco stop for those of us who love to shop. When the craving takes over mid shop, Selfridges sleek bar is the perfect resolution. I also love the glasses they use here, makes one feel extra sophis! £8.50 per glass £39 per bottle.
Lost and Found - This bar is the usual haunt for any Visit Birmingham after works drinks so it’s not surprise a vast amount of prosecco is drunk here. The bar has a buzzing atmosphere yet the quirky design elements make it a great location to slurp away. £5 per glass and £27 per bottle.
The New Inn - As a native Harbornian (I live in Harborne), it would be sacrilege not to mention this gem of a pub. Not only is the price of a glass of prosecco very agreeable, but no matter the weather, this pub offers a great location to enjoy it, whether in the beautiful garden or next to their cosy fire. £5.50 per glass £25.50 per bottle.
The Edgbaston - Feel like a flapper with your glass of bubbly goodness in this dazzling bar. Though famous for its incredible cocktails, like many people I find it hard to pick the right cocktail, it’s either too sweet or too strong - so I stick to what I know, which I did here and I wasn’t disappointed at all!
Bank - It is thanks to Bank's AMAZING heated and comfy outdoor seated area that it is such a great place to grab a glass (or bottle) with friends. So sit back and relax in Brindleyplace and enjoy a drink outside rain or shine. £6.75 per glass £28 per bottle.
Summer Food Festivals - Prosecco is now mobile and the city has some great drinks vendors sharing the prosecco love, which means at any of the city’s outdoor food events prosecco is there. From Seasonal Markets events to Colmore Food Festival, you don’t need to go to the prosecco the prosecco will come to you. Price varies.
