The Mockingbird Theatre
For those who are looking for something a bit more social than the average pub, the Mockingbird Theatre is a fun and casual joint to go and chill out with friends.

The entertainment is always going to be varied, and the drinks are affordable too.
Mockingbird House, The Custard Factory, Gibb St, Birmingham B9 4AA
If you enjoy retro entertainment, or you're old enough to remember pinball machines yourself, then head by Tilt. This place is more of a cafe than a pub - it's open during the day and it serves coffee - but beer is on the menu as well. Why not play a few games, and sample some of the drinks too? This is a small, quaint place, but on an evening it can be quite lively - and noisy!
Birmingham is home to a huge number of bars, and if you venture away from the chain pubs and big breweries you can be sure that you won't be disappointed. Just head out and see what's on offer. We're confident you'll love it.
