Park Regis Hotel06.05.16
On 29th March this year, a luxurious new hotel located at the very top of Broad Street opened its doors to the public. The Park Regis Hotel, at 160 Broad Street, is the company’s first Europe hotel and has provided Birmingham with a fabulous new 4 star experience featuring the 1565 restaurant, bar and terrace on the 4th floor (open to the public), and the Birmingham’s second rooftop bar and restaurant – the Rofuto Japanese restaurant and the Kurabu cocktail lounge, both located on the 16th floor of the building – the first being the Marco Pierre White restaurant at the top of The Cube.
The Rofuto restaurant operates a strict pre-booking policy, and the Kurabu cocktail bar is only accessible for hotel guests. However, we were lucky enough to visit the bar on its opening night, Tuesday 26th April, to sample their delicious cocktails (we recommend the Midnight Geisha) and admire the city from a bird’s eye view.
From the comfort of your seat, you can look out across the majority of leafy Edgbaston, you can see the BT Tower, and you can even see as far as the West Bromwich Albion football ground. The staff were very welcoming and attentive, providing smiley table service and ensuring our empty glasses weren’t empty for long. It’s safe to say that it won’t be our last visit to the hotel and its bars & restaurants!
