With an interior designed by a world-renowned UK designer, the bar will bring its ‘World’s Hottest Happy Hour’, Themed Birthday Packages and 00’s Bottomless Brunch
The Cocktail Club, formerly known as London Cocktail Club, has chosen Birmingham as the destination for their 15th and biggest site to date. Due to open in mid-September, The Cocktail Club will be located on Temple Street in the city centre and will offer ‘The World’s Hottest Happy Hour’ seven days a week. The site’s interior will also be designed by a hot top Brit designer.
The bar’s concept was initially conceived by John James ‘JJ’ Goodman and James Hopkins. JJ was crowned the winner of the World’s Best Bartender award at the 2008 Cocktail World Cup. After the pair won television competition ‘The Restaurant’ in 2009, they founded their first site on Goodge Street. A further eight sites were opened in London across the following eight years, with their first regional expansion opening in Bristol in 2018.
Goodman and Hopkins set out to create a collection of bars wherein customers could experience best-in-class cocktails within exciting, ‘theatrical’ environments. Positioning themselves as ‘the ultimate party bar’, The Cocktail Club aims to give customers a wild night out.
Each of The Cocktail Club sites are individually designed, differing in decor and venue size. Many sites offer themed Bottomless Brunches, which include bottomless Prosecco, Pornstar Martinis and Brambles, a brunch menu and live entertainment.
Following a rapid period of growth after being acquired by Nightcap at the beginning of 2021, The Cocktail Club are continuing to work on their regional expansion, with Birmingham being chosen as the next destination for their newest opening.
As their largest venue to date, the ‘high energy’ bar will have a capacity of 450, set across two floors and three rooms. The bar’s ‘World’s Hottest Happy Hour’ will run seven days a week, offering 2-4-1 on every drink until 8pm daily. Party packages will also be on offer, with guests able to book cocktail masterclasses alongside private room and venue hire. As well as an ‘outrageous’ 00’s Bottomless Brunch which will run every Saturday daytime, offering guests the ‘ultimate weekend party’ with a jam-packed day of ‘freaky throwbacks, mega mischief and all-round f*ckery’.
“We can’t wait to launch our biggest site to date in Birmingham with an explosive bang. The Cocktail Club is all about giving guests a good time; a place where people can truly let their hair down. Our bartenders put on a theatrical show for customers, from dancing on the bar tops to throwing ice and swinging lights, there’s always something going on at The Cocktail Club. We live by our mantra, ‘welcome to the party’, and we’re so excited to bring this to Birmingham.”
J Goodman, Co-founder of The Cocktail Club
