Enjoy yourself but remember to drink responsibly.

Stop Number 1 – Mezbaan Dining & Cocktails

Putting a modern twist on Bengali classics Mezbaan is one of the most popular nights out in Kings Heath for their delicious food, but they also specialise in creating incredible Cocktails.

Go here to try their Mezbaan Gold, a double shot of dark spiced rum, crushed cardamoms, freshly squeezed lime juice, mango purée and pineapple juice otherwise known as ‘The Taste of Bangladesh.’

Stop Number 2 – Loco Lounge

The Lounges are known across the UK to have wonderful Cocktails and nothing is different at Loco. If you fancy yourself as quite the classy drinker Loco’s Raspberry Fizz will be right up your street. For just £6.95 enjoy a fruity blend of Raspberries and raspberry liqueur topped with prosecco.

Stop number 3 – The Pear Tree

A few drinks in Spoons is always a good night and at The Pear Tree, the wide variety of Cocktails available among hundreds of other drinks means you’re never going to be bored of popping into Spoons for a drink or two. From Blue Lagoon to Mojito, Purple Rain to Woo Woo, Very Cherry to Rum Punch.

Stop number 4 – Fletcher’s Bar

Monday to Friday at Fletchers is 2 for £10 on all Cocktails so a visit here really is a no brainer. Our personal favourite from Fletchers is their ‘Planters Punch.’ The punch is made with a blend of Skippers Dark, Grenadine, orange, pineapple, lemon, sugar and a dash of Bitters. Yes, it tastes as good as it sounds!

Stop Number 5 – Black Lab

The quaint and quirky Black Lab Lounge is one of the coolest spots in the Kings Heath to visit on a night out and their amazing cocktails make the visit even more worthwhile. Black Lab’s very own Black Lab Berry Sangria is a must try on a night out in the Heath, trust us, it’s incredible!

Stop Number 6 – The Goose

The Goose at Kings Heath is a great place to enjoy a cocktail stop after a long day of shopping. At £7.99 The Goose’s Party Bowls are incredible value for money. Our personal fave has to be the Flaming Red, just listen to this for a line-up. WKD Berry, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire, Smirnoff No. 21 vodka and cranberry juice, topped with Schweppes lemonade.

Stop Number 6 – Byzantium

Of course, we absolutely love Byzantium’s terrific Tapas selection but we’re also right suckers for their incredible Cocktail selection. For all you Gin lovers out there you have to try Byzantium’s Negroni, it will be right up your street! The Negroni is a balanced blend of Campari, Martini Red and of course… Gin, served with a slice of orange for an extra hint of sweetness.

Stop Number 7 – Bloom

There’s nothing quite like a Bloody Mary to give you that much needed kick and Blooms delicious blend combines a double shot of Grey Goose vodka with all the trimmings in your classic Bloody Mary. This cocktail classic is only available on weekends at Bloom so if you want to get a taste of this beaut be sure to drop in on a Saturday or Sunday.

Stop Number 8 – Ristorante Veneziano

Get whisked away to Italy at the fine-dining Ristorante Veneziano, why not try Ristorante Veneziano’s delicious Green Eyes cocktail? Featuring Vodka, blue curacao and orange juice combo and is a real crowd pleaser.

Stop Number 9 – Brian’s Juice & Bites

Brian’s is the place when it comes to straight fruity flavour. Imagine yourself lying on a golden beach in the Caribbean while you sip on a delicious cocktail. We recommend the ‘make your own’ option at Brain’s. Simply tell the wonderful staff your favourite flavour and they’ll put together a heavenly cocktail personalized just for your taste! Head down on Thursday for Brain’s #ThirstyThursdays, with happy hour all day long and 2 for £10 on cocktails.

Happy weekend, we hope you have a good one whatever you are up to in the Heath.
