Is there ever a reason to break your new year's resolution? The answer is YES of course there is! Why start the new year miserable, when you could be out enjoying and experiencing a whole range of fun and exciting things around the city?

If that isn’t convincing enough, here are the top three reasons for why you should bin your 2019 new year’s resolutions.

1. Instead of gaining abs at the gym, expand that waistline at a top rated restaurant.

Has your strict diet plan of nuts, berries and green juices already got you craving delicious food? Is your mouth watering every time you walk past a restaurant, as you smell the aroma of food cooking? Well now it’s time to loosen your belt and expand that waistline at one of Birmingham's many pop-ups and restaurants.

Experience modern fine dining with fun at the heart of it and try something new at Nocturnal Animals. This provocative venue offers a memorable culinary journey with ingenious drinks, daring flavours and a remarkable afternoon tea unlike any before.

2. Forget dry January, get merry with a cocktail and a glass of wine (or two) instead.

Have the most memorable night of your life, staying out until the early hours of the morning consuming some of the best drinks in town. 

Let your hair down, go wild and experience a tasting sensation with an exotic cocktail full of Latin-inspired flavours all day long at Revolución de Cuba.

If a cheeky cocktail isn't your thing, pop down to one of the city's local pubs for a pint of real and locally brewed ale for a (not so) quiet night in with your pals.

Fill yourself with traditional food, whilst drinking ale in the stunning surroundings of a Grade II listed building at The Old Joint Stock, one of Birmingham’s finest pubs!
