NESTLED in the midst of mature tree-lined walks, lawns and restored historic buildings at St Paul’s Square, in the Jewellery Quarter is The Jam House – one of Birmingham’s best dining and late night live entertainment venues.
Some of the city’s most fashionable restaurants and bars are in this area, and The Jam House boasts legendary Jools Holland as a musical patron.
The venue is a great contribution to Birmingham’s live music scene, offering a nightly dose of duelling pianos, and live rhythm ‘n’ blues.
Its restaurant and bars open from 6pm, with DJs and live music from 9pm to 2am, and support is provided boogie woogie style by The Jam House’s own resident piano and drums duo.
The Jam House is set on elevated levels, as the gallery dining area over looks the bars and dance floor; and an in-house menu offers a variety of tempting international dishes at recession busting prices with two courses priced £26 and three courses for £30. Starting with bread and marinated olives (£2.50), I opted for the seared tuna nicoise, my husband soup of the day, and our youngest daughter, a vegetarian, chose the mozzarella cherry tomato pizette. For mains, the confit duck a la orange, potato rosti with asparagus, and guinea fowl with chorizo, were ordered. We finished with a knicker bocker glory, a raspberry and lemon curd Alaska, and a Black Forest gateaux; and afterwards relaxed with cocktails while watching a live band perform.
The Jam House is perfect for those who want to dine and dance the night away in a relaxed, but sophisticated environment you will definitely want to experience again. To reserve a table call 0121 200 3030 (www.thejamhouse.com).
