Take on the Digbeth Nightlife Challenge

All over Digbeth!
To be completed in 2023

From fine-dining to House and Techno clubs, we all know Digbeth is top of the tree when it comes to versatile options for a night out.

But is it possible to visit every hot spot in just one year? Sounds like a tall order!

The Ruin are offering the first person (with proof!) to visit all 44 bars, clubs, restaurants and venues included in their Digbeth Mural a £500 bar tab.

Are you up to the task? Find the full details below. Good luck!

I'm up for a challenge!

After more ideas? Check out our city guide!

Two people walking through Birmingham Five Ways area at night

@photosbybenjii titled this image ‘Lost in the 0121’ - very apt for a shot so dreamy you wouldn’t believe its taken at the bottom of the Smallbrook Queensway!

I love the blur here; the two passing figures feel just as much a haunting reality as a figment of your imagination. Spooky!

BBC Sounds series, Birmingham - The City They Couldn't Kill

Listen to this BBC Sounds series 'Birmingham – the city they couldn’t kill'

Up until the ‘60s, Birmingham enjoyed higher wages and lower unemployment rates than the rest of the country. 

However, London politicians felt the city’s success was threatening to their national plan and began putting laws in place to destabilise its growth. This is the story of how Brum fought back against the odds and changed its standing in the world today. 

Ten short, informative episodes make for perfect listening whenever you’re on the go!

Educate me!
