Broad Street

Broad Street is well known for being the centre of the nightlife action and is home to Birmingham biggest nightclub Gatecrasher. With four club rooms all playing a variety of music, ranging from the biggest dance and house anthems to alternative indie and dubstep, this club really does have something for everyone. 

For a whole night out in one venue try Bar Risa in the heart of Broad Street, which plays host to one on the biggest club nights on a Saturday with 6 rooms of epic music.

Why not experience the excitement of Grosvenor Casino? Open 24 hours a day, the Grosvenor Casino offer something a little different to the other bars and clubs on Broad St.  You will find great food, late bars, quality entertainment and the best gaming.

Come for euphoric house. Come for big, bold, phat beats or chilled out all-dayers. Whatever rocks your world, just come for the floor-filling fun of it.
