So we spent the bank holiday in Birmingham, just enjoying some time to ourselves. Whenever we go out we never both get to have a drink so we thought we’d have a treat.
To start this off we (I say we, I mean I) booked a hotel on booking.com. I looove this site!! It was an absolute bargain at £59! The hotel was like a 10 minute walk to the shops… perfect 👌🏽 so as soon as we arrived we walked in. The hotel was called pentahotel, it literally looked so good. For £59 you could not complain. The bed was comfy, the shower was lovely & the room was a good size for a short stay 👍🏽 we had a drink in the hotel before we went out for dinner & I have to say it was quite pricey, but it did have a lot of good drinks. It also had anatomicals toiletries 😍 that literally made my stay 🙈😂 & of course they came home with me.
We went to the bullring when we arrived in Birmingham to do some window shopping, but decided that we were too hot, so we started having some drinks early on in the day… 🙄 it was bank holiday after all & the sun was shining. We had a drink in all bar one to start with which was sooo yummy. I had a pornstar martini & Sam had a cider. Both were so nice! We love this place 🍹 we also had some lunch in a place called burritos, you’ll never guess what they sell… 🌯🙊 really tasty & I had never heard of it before but it was fairly busy.
In the evening we had booked our meal at an Italian restaurant called cielo. Never heard of this place either, but we love Italian food so I knew we would enjoy it. We had a 3 course meal each & an alcoholic drink. Guess what I had, another cocktail, this time it was a Cosmo though 💁🏽🍸 it came to £82 including the service charge, which isn’t too bad for a city I didn’t think. Plus it was super tasty 😋
To end the evening we had some more cocktails in all bar one & a cute little place called pitcher & piano along the canal. It was really pretty! We literally just enjoyed time to ourselves rabbiting on & not having to worry about time. If you ever visit Birmingham you have to go to pitcher & piano as its just the cutest place to sit outside.
