Beneath a disused railway arch in Birmingham, a culture of ‘street food’ is erupting.
Every Friday since 2012, Digbeth Dining Club (or DDC as it’s more commonly known) has successfully striped back the unnecessary frills and expense of restaurant eating, making way for amazing street food artisans to showcase their mouthwatering and flavoursome creations.
“This isn’t substance over style, this is both in abundance!”
With dishes from £5-£6, theres food to cater all tastes at a price that won’t leave a bitter taste in your mouth.
And with over 20 resident traders, no two weeks are the same.
It’s authentic ‘back to roots’ mentality feels right at home at Spot*light, a quirky single room bar of with a capacity of 250, built underneath one of Digbeth’s many Victorian Railway Arches.
The various pieces of art scattered along the walls, with music provided by local musicians and DJs, gives DDC the feel of a event that wouldn’t be out of place in London’s trendy Shoreditch.
Summary: Digbeth Dining Club effortlessly reflects the city’s melting pot of culture with heart-warming food in an electric atmosphere.
Entrance is free of charge.
BLOC Hotel Birmingham
The BLOC philosophy is new to the UK. The concept is called pared-down chic and is based on ideas we’ve adapted from the best designers around the world. By injecting a little British creativity, we have been pushing the boundaries of hotel design. From the build right down to the finishes in each room, we work with cutting-edge materials and innovative thinkers whose mantra really is, small is beautiful.
The idea is to build very cleverly using the very best materials whilst still making it as cost-effective as possible. And that means we can offer our guests really chic rooms in prime city centre locations at very, very good prices.
