Dear Daisy, It is your first day at school...

The Perfect Day Out in Birmingham

Last weekend we headed to Birmingham for a "adults" day out, minus the children obviously!

We were meeting friends that we haven't seen in a while and Birmingham is our central spot and we always have a good day out when we head there.

I wanted to share with you where we headed and what we got up to so you too can have some inspiration if you manage to visit soon.

First up we headed to Zizzi at the Mailbox for some rustica pizzas and cocktails. The Mailbox isn't far from the train station at New Street so it was a good place to start where we were guaranteed some nice food and where we could have a look around the shops afterwards. This is where Harvey Nichols is so if you fancy shopping a little on the higher end this is where to head. We had a quick look around the cosmetics stands and headed for a pick me up in the form of an espresso martini at the bar before wondering back towards the centre of the city.

Our next stop was Dirty Martini on Bennett's Hill where we all chose various cocktails on the menu. We were lucky to get there for happy hour (which is actually between 12-8pm on a Saturday!) so enjoyed half price Martinis. I couldn't actually believe how busy it was in the cocktail bars around town, considering we were there at around 4pm. It did quieten down towards later afternoon into the evening before it got busier again at around 8pm.

We actually stayed here for a good few hours making the most of happy hour, people watching and catching up.

We then headed to a few other bars before finishing off at Lost and Found. The decor in here is so insta worthy, it is whimsical and floral and just really grand. It was absolutely beautiful! The flowers on the ceiling were gorgeous and made me want to do it in our home!

We had a fantastic day. There is so much choice in the city of all kinds of bars, restaurants and cafes. Not to mention the shopping. One day soon we will be back to have a girls day shopping and to try out a few more of the cocktail bars I think!
