Birmingham in the nineties: The 14 best Birmingham nightclubs of the 1990s

Birmingham is home to so many nightclubs - here are the best of the 1990s

The 90s was a transformative decade for the UK, and it was a time when Birmingham's nightlife was thriving.

Broad Street went from a neglected area to party central with all its bars, restaurants and clubs, and like today, there were plenty of brilliant restaurants located around the city centre for people to try.

Bingley Hall had been Britain’s first purpose-built exhibition centre in 1850 but it burned down in 1984. In its place in 1991 came the magnificent Symphony Hall and International Convention Centre.  

Bill Clinton, along with the world's leaders, also came to town for the G8 summit there in May 1998. It was also a decade that featured the emergence of grunge music, Britpop, and New Labour. Dance music was also beginning to become very popular, which was reflected in some of the city's top nightclubs.

We've taken a look back at some of Birmingham's top nightclubs of the 90s.
