WELCOME TO THE NIGHT OWL
The Night Owl is The Midlands’ finest soul and retro club and intimate live music venue set in the heart of Digbeth, the Creative Quarter of Birmingham.
This is the venue that soul fans across the UK have been crying out for. It gains its name from a classic Northern Soul record ‘The Night Owl’ by Bobby Paris. Northern Soul isn’t just a type of music, it’s a way of life. The records, the dancing, the clothes, and the lifelong friends made. Richard Priest has adored Northern Soul since his teenage years in the 1970s; he became a regular at infamous all-nighter parties at legendary venues such as Wigan Casino. His dream has become a reality. Combining Richard Priest’s vision with Promoter Mazzy Snape’s know-how the venue has evolved into the place to be for all fans of good soul and guitar-based music.
The venue features a modern spin on vintage interiors designed by Stax Creations, the people behind the fantastic exterior of The Old Crown Beer Garden. We have a sprung wooden dance floor, making it safe for the acrobatics of Northern Soul dancing or just to ease the strain if you’re dancing all night.
