I went a few Friday's ago about 6:30pm and it was rammed, possibly a post work crowd but quite had a mix of ages & dress codes. There was an Oirish band playing very loud music which gave it a good atmosphere but was impossible to have a conversation.

Hopefully the (soon to be) brilliant location will help them make a success of it as I think they are locally/independently owned.

If only Northfield could be like that :-((
No doubt also helped with the knowledge that the new train station at Hazelwell should be operating in the next two years.

Yep I need to actually stop off in Stirchley maybe tomorrow as I'm off work also I've got a feeling Cotteridge will step up real soon too. As an old Nordfeldian I always have hope for the place

The Attic Brewery in Stirchley is worth a visit, right opposite Bournville station too so handy for a swift Märzen before you just on the train.

Just leaves the one former Eat in the Bullring.
I’m sure bullring EAT was mentioned in the original article about it as becoming a veggie pret

Most of them aren't open during weekdays because there isn't the footfall or population there in the week, but Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays they're very busy.

I hope Severn Capital's new Aldi and retail park don't f*** up what is a wonderful emerging independent ecosystem.

(I've submitted an objection to the plans anyway)

Midweek trade should increase there’s a lot of housing going up nearby and it’s gradually getting busier anyway

Could do with the student block off Mary vale road moving forward soon it’s been left demolished now for a while and looks a bit of a mess

Hopefully the huge site off Charlotte road that went up for sake could see a decent mix of apartments and housing too

Not a massive fan of Theatrix, thought it was going to be a sort of Snobs for over 30s, but seems like a real mainstream bar and music, but in a fantastic location.

Great! As much as I love Moseley, it is (in my opinion) seriously lagging behind all the other 'cool' suburbs in that it still doesn't have a proper third wave coffee shop, so this is long overdue. Kings heath and Harborne both have at least two and Sutton has at least one.

Regarding Moseley coffee shops:there are a lot already. It will be interesting to see which one bites the dust first.

Anyone know what's happened to the cafe on the second level of the Mailbox shops, just the shell of the outlet standing now?
The "High End" shopping aim of the Mailbox really seems to be struggling to get customers, the lower level is devoid of any character and now the "busier" second level as joined it.
A real shame the potential of the Mailbox can't be achieved, I just wonder if Birmingham just doesn't have enough "affluence" to support a Mall of this kind?
Or its location just cannot attract the required footfall?

Chilango's was totally empty this afternoon whilst its competitors were doing healthy business.
Something about the theme and layout doesn't work for me, totally austere and uncomfortable tables and seats, feels like a market cafe, whats wrong with some cozy seating and tables and alcoves you can have a quiet conversation.
Love mexican food, but just not tempted to eat there.
