They are just two areas of the enchanting Indo-persian Indo-Persian boutique hotel, fine dining restaurant & cocktail bar which is replacing The Edgbaston, on Highfield Road, which shut down after the pandemic.

The new venue is being run by the team behind Qavali on Broad Street. If you’re not familiar with the restaurant, then it’s well worth a visit.

It’s a fascinating experience, which like The Baloci, is inspired by Indo-Persian culture and cuisine,  serving specialities from across Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Persia, and India.

The Baloci boutique hotel shares a name with a Western Iranic ethnic group native to the Balochistan region of South and Western Asia which includes Pakistan, Iran, and Afghanistan. Gold is a treasured possession and singing is admired.

The history and cultural influences of the people is set to be celebrated throughout the venue - including a room dedicated to Alexander the Great which the hotel describes as: “A powerful military strategist who yet had a short lived rule over Persia after succeeding in his conquest of one of the most powerful empires in history.

“At Baloci, we will honour the legacy of Alexander the Great with a room dedicated to his passions, evolution and his ever-growing love for the culture and people of the region.” The Baloci says it plans to open in November - but no exact date has been given yet.
