What’s happening?

Albert’s Schloss, a Bavarian inspired bar, restaurant and entertainment venue is set to open in Birmingham in November.

The venue, a ‘Bohemian pleasure palace’ is 13,000 sq feet of bar, restaurant, tavern and theatre, and will house room for 500 customers.

‘The Cook Haus’ will serve up Bavarian-Alpine- food with Fondue and Schweinsaxe being stars of the show. An in-house bakery will produce artisan bread, pretzels, pastries and puddings alongside fresh daily roasted coffee.

The venue will also showcase some of the best Munich lagers such as Paulaner, Augustiner and Lowenbrau, and the cocktail list also takes influence from the Alps with Haus Schnapps made fresh on-site every week.

Where is it?

Further to opening the original Albert’s Schloss in Manchester six years ago, operators Mission Mars will open their second site in the heart of Paradise Forum at One Chamberlain Square, next to Dishoom.

The venue will operate over two floors with three bars (the largest of which is over 100 feet long), will be managed by a team of over 120 staff, and have a spacious outside terrace with a restored Citroen Van bier bar.

The venue’s very own ‘study’ that can host up to 30 people seated and 60 people standing will also be available for private hire, whilst a vermouth and Schnapps bar with shuffleboard and Ski Lodge board games can be found on the mezzanine.


‘Seven days of showtime’ means live music and lots of it. The venue will be home to over 100 freelance artists ‘serving up fun and flamboyant performances’ every night of the week.

Roy Ellis, CEO of Mission Mars, said: “Schloss namesake, Prince Albert, championed truth, beauty, freedom and love. Deeply saddened by his untimely death, Queen Victoria named buildings up and down the country in his honour.

“Albert’s Schloss in Birmingham will celebrate the beloved Prince’s values every day and all night long.

“We’re creating a retreat from the modern world where we invite guests to discover new things, celebrate one another and enjoy the pleasures and wunder of our decadent Schloss. Influenced by our travels across Bavaria, Bohemia and Alpine European retreats, expect roaring fires, raucous musical performances, tankards of Europe’s finest biers and robust Bavarian food in our wonderful Paradise surroundings.”
