1. The Ivy, Temple Row
The Ivy finally opened its doors today, and with what is said to be the most eagerly anticipated restaurant opening in Birmingham this year, we couldn’t wait to pay it a visit!
The new luxurious 155 cover restaurant spanning over 3 floors is located on Temple Row, in the building which was formerly occupied by Louis Vuitton. The signature green colour palette that we all know and love is complimented with plush leather banquette seating, polished marble floors, hints of brass and bold artwork to give a sophisticated yet relaxed dining experience. Their menus feature a wide selection of modern British classics and internationally inspired dishes, as well as light and healthy brunch options, afternoon teas and an extensive cocktail menu. The Archer Room on the first floor, named after Thomas Archer who designed St Philip's Cathedral – offers a private dining experience with views overlooking the Cathedral. The walls of The Archer Room are decorated with colourful vintage prints and locally referenced artwork inspired by the industrial revolution. The dark timber flooring, pendant lighting, dark green leather upholstery and Art Deco-style add drama, and glamour to the space.
We love… everything?!
