If you haven’t already heard about The Night Owl in Digbeth then it’s about time you do.
Birmingham’s latest bar situated in the back streets of Digbeth is reviving the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s sounds of Northern Soul, Motown, Funk, Ska and Reggae. Although bringing this back to the modern era the club isn’t forgetting the Northern Soul and Motown roots with membership deals available. You can even reserve your own VIP area with vintage style interior, private bar and a sprung wooden dance floor for all your dancing needs.
Following the clubs sell out opening shows in July it has since hosted dance lessons, weekly club nights and has even had Edwin Starr’s original band, Angelo Starr & The Team, doing a special takeover.
