Birmingham has a shiny new venue – The Vaults. Its a ‘Boutique Bar’ – co-owned by Russell of design agency Clusta – and is based on Newhall Hill (just on the way to the Jewellery Quarter).
It is a gorgeous underground venue with lots of little alcoves and spaces to lounge. It’s capacity isn’t huge, which is nice, and it is certainly set to be the exclusive hang out of the city.
The decor and furniture is minimal – but not in a stark way – they have kept the brick work bare and decorated it with key pieces of art.
The cellar is believed to be Birmingham’s oldest workhouse and photographer Stuart Whipps has been commissioned to photograph it (as soon as we have those images we’ll get them online).
But if you want a peek for yourself the address is: The Vaults, Newhall Place, Newhall Hill, Birmingham. www.vaultsbirmingham.com.
