Discover the best food and drink experiences

Bottles Birmingham opens at the Mailbox in December


Bottles Birmingham is inspired by Bordeaux, one of France’s most popular wine regions.

The concept will bring an extensive range of over 300 wines, ports and champagnes to Birmingham’s canalside.

Served by the bottle or glass, guests also have the opportunity to explore the state-of-the-art wine dispensing machines, offering a unique wine-tasting experience.

Wine is the focus, but the bar will also serve a selection of bottled craft beers, cocktails, spirits, hot drinks and soft drinks.

The kitchen will prepare a selection of contemporary dishes that focus on casual, social dining, like tapas and sharing plates.

There will also be pintxos: mini gourmet snacks served on cocktail sticks in the style of Spain's Basque region.

You’ll also be able to enjoy brunch, afternoon tea and late-night nibbles seven days a week.

Bottles Birmingham is set to open at the former Bar Epernay site on Thursday 1st December.

It will be four times bigger than its sister venue in Worcester. It will also feature a specially designed club room for private events and parties.

With large group tables, as well as smaller, intimate layouts for couples, Bottles Birmingham will help to 'make the exclusive wine world more accessible to everyone.'

Speaking of the launch, founder Richard Everton said:

“Following on from the incredible success of our first Bottles Wine Bar in Worcester we are absolutely delighted to be bringing this really exciting new wine and food concept to somewhere as prestigious as the Mailbox in Birmingham.

"Offering over 40 wines and fortified wines by the glass, this should be the main destination in Birmingham for all wine lovers”.

​Melanie Taylor, head of retail relations at Mailbox co-owners Milligan, said:

“Bottles Birmingham will be a hugely exciting new addition for the Mailbox. With its unique approach to wine, Bottles perfectly complements the existing portfolio of bars and restaurants here at the Mailbox."

The Mailbox is also gearing up to welcome restaurant, bar and deli, Tom’s Kitchen to its Level 2 Urban Room just in time for Christmas.

Founded by UK chef Tom Aikens, Tom’s Kitchen Birmingham will serve British comfort food in an informal setting.
