8. Snobs nightclub
If you’re not too local to Birmingham, or if you’re not big on clubbing, you might not know, but Snobs is definitely the best nightclub in Birmingham. With three different floors to the club, playing all things 90s, noughties, and 2010s in the way of music, there is something for everyone! Alternatively, if clubbing isn’t really your thing and you are more of a bar lover, Snobs opens up in the daytime too, selling food and drink.
9. Pryzm Birmingham
If you have already experienced Snobs or are looking for something on the other side of town, Pryzm is a great alternative to Snobs. Pryzm is the largest club in Birmingham, with four huge rooms and a really great mixture of trance, RnB, hip hop and mash up from the DJs. Pryzm is definitely more upmarket and dressy than laidback Snobs, so you better get the girls together and get your best dresses on! Be sure to check out the Pryzm website to get the best deals on tickets for the club!
