Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club Birmingham


Bars & Pubs, restaurants, Review

July saw the launch of a summer menu at Cosy Club Birmingham so I went along to sample some of the new dishes available alongside a few cocktails. For those unfamiliar with this bar come restaurant, it’s an eclectic mix of plush furnishing, peculiar paintings, and over the top decor. It manages to feel like a vintage […]

Place your bets: The Restaurant, Broadway Casino
