A new cocktail bar is opening in the city centre.
Manhattan Ave cocktail bar is opening just off John Bright Street in September.
The 50 seater bar is housed in two empty units on Lower Severn Street - behind BrewDog on John Bright Street.
BirminghamLive had a sneak peek inside while builders were at work getting the bar ready for opening. We can reveal the interior more than lives up to to the bar’s name.
There are giant hand painted murals of the Manhattan skyline as well as lots of exposed brickwork and industrial factory style touches.
Manhattan Ave will serve a selection of classic cocktails such as Cosmopolitan, Long Island Iced Tea, Martini and of course a Manhattan - whisky, sweet red vermouth and orange bitters.
There will also be a selection of alcoholic fruit teas on the menu.
The owners also manage Feng Cha Chinese tea house on Hurst Street.
The Feng Cha brand was founded in China and is famous for its extensive range of teas such as fresh lemon black tea and jasmine apple green tea.
A spokesman for the bar said: “The Manhattan Ave concept is about recreating that NYC vibe with cocktails to match the interior but we also want to showcase fruit tea cocktails - a twist on the non alcoholic versions we serve at Feng Cha in Chinatown.
“Manhattan Ave will be a chilled relaxed setting to enjoy cocktails before and after dinner. There will be a limited light bites menu but the focus is very much on quality cocktails.
"I’m really looking forward to opening here - it’s an exciting part of town and hopefully we will complement all the nearby bars and restaurants."
