This is the leisure and entertainment area of Birmingham. Broad Street is famous for its many bars and clubs, as well as the Barclaycard Arena (NIA) and Symphiony Hall. Diners should explore Brindleyplace and the Mailbox.
Hotels line the whole length of Broad Street. Popular with party goers at the weekend, and those doing business at the ICC or in the city centre during the week.
Westside is Birmingham's leisure destination. Whilst Broad Street features mainly bars and clubs, Brindleyplace next to the Birmingham Canal has a wide choice of restaurants whilst the Mailbox features mainly chain restaurants.
Weekends is really when this area comes alive. Hundreds of party goers and large groups head this way, attracted by the late night bars and clubs. During the day it is a pleasant place to take a leisurely stroll along the city's canals.
