9 of the best places for happy hour in Birmingham

Everyone loves happy hour! Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, graduation or just the end of the working day, happy hour is a great time to unwind and relax with friends or family without spending a fortune on drinks. Plus, if you don’t fancy a big night out, the end of happy hour is a good time to call it a night! 

Most bars will generally have a happy hour for a few hours a night at their less popular times (which means it is generally earlier on Friday/Saturday nights). Some popular policies are 2-for-1 or half-price cocktails. Here are 9 of the best places for happy hour in Birmingham!
