Are you surprised that there is yet another new opening in Digbeth? not really, because everyone is talking about Digbeth right now. From exciting new hospitality venues to draw-dropping street art that lures people in from all over the world to appreciate Digbeth’s uniqueness, nerve, and talent, Digbeth is the word. The latest opening in Digbeth is Luna Springs brought to you by London-based Adventure Bar Group who operate nine bars in London such as Bar Elba, Blame Gloria, and Tonight Josephine. Embracing creative energy and inspiration that buzzes through the city, located in the Digbeth Arena and surrounded by an urban concrete jungle with a splash of 80’s nostalgia,
Taking over the Digbeth Arena that currently has a capacity of 400 but will soon look to increase this to 2,500 after Co-vid restrictions lift, there is indeed, plenty of space for all. The bar area is huge which is great because as it’s such a big venue I did wonder what the ordering at the bar situation would be like when restrictions are lifted. My time slot was 2.30 pm on a Friday with three of my blogging pals, upon arrival we were asked to check-in using the NHS app and informed that we must wear masks when walking around the venue. Sitting under what can only be described as a giant Battenberg cake which was very vibrant! looking around you can see quite clearly that this venue is pretty big! Plenty of seating that is spaced out and plenty of cool street-art backdrops for those Instagram photos!
Looking at the menu, the prices for the drinks are very reasonable from £8-£10 for cocktails It’s kind of the “norm” price for a cocktail these days in Birmingham. I ordered the zombie cocktail which comes in a very quirky Tiki glass. Its Havana Club Especial rum, Pussers dark rum, velvet falernum, pink grapefruit cordial, citrus and pineapple juice, passionfruit and grenadine…Yep, its a mouthful alright! I can happily confirm that you do get a lot of alcohol for the price and it’s simply not just watered down with JUICE. The Zombie cocktail is full of flavour and was definitely giving me holiday vibes! The next cocktail I went for was the Strawberry and melon martini that was just so refreshing and tasted so gorgeous.
My favourite cocktail was the Hibiscus Margarita, you just can’t beat a good Margarita and this one was pretty darn good.
If you’re not a big fan of cocktails then they have plenty of alcohol beverages such as shooters, wine, beer and more. They also do alcohol free cocktails and soft drinks.
Cocktails are fabulous here but the waiting times are not so much, it did take a while to order and receive the cocktails however this was opening week so I expected a few teething problems. I did feed this back to the team in which I was insured this was going to be looked at. I will say however, the staff are very friendly here and a lot of fun!
Luna Springs also offer food from burgers to sides such as fries, I didn’t get to try this as I was too busy gulping down cocktails but I do remember I tried the chips and I Enjoyed them. They also have street food pop ups such as The English Indian and The Handmade Pizza Co.
The venue is superb, and really fits in nicely with Digbeth attracting students to families. Luna Springs will also be opening their Moodlight Cinema which will be pretty special and something you shoudl defiently book in to this Summer. A movie under the stars with a cocktail? Hell to the Yeah Bab. Luna Springs is most likely to be packed out throughout the Summer with its electric atmosphere and sassy cocktail menu, Another venue with no doubt in my mind will succeed and will have a thriving future here in Digbeth, The place to be is Luna Springs that’s for sure!
I recently attended Luna Springs again and ordered some drinks, in which this time, I didnt wait long at all. Drinks came within five minutes and service was super sharp!
