  • Why live in Digbeth / Eastside?

    Previously the industrial heart of Birmingham, Digbeth is the most recently developed area of the city. Situated just a five-minute walk from the Bullring Shopping Centre, it boasts warehouse conversions, nightclubs and music venues. It is considered Birmingham’s answer to Shoreditch, being the epicentre for the young, cool and creative.

    Properties can vary from warehouse conversions to sleek, modern and affordable apartments. As Digbeth is up and coming the rent is relatively low and there are many new developments to choose from if you are looking to rent or buy an apartment. Prices are currently still very reasonable on that side of the city, with apartments in Digbeth selling from £96k to £135k on Bradford Street in 2016.

    Eastside is situated at the northeast side of Digbeth and has also seen a drastic change over recent years. Birmingham City University has spent millions of pounds redeveloping their city centre campus, giving the city a greener feel with newly planted trees and water fountains.

The venue is also available for private hire, allowing you to throw a party with a real twist!
