My wife and I stopped here for a pre-dinner glass of champagne. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff, and the location is good too, being in the redeveloped canal side area, with plenty of nearby restaurants to choose from. Definitely a good option if you're looking...More

Lovely view of the canal from window seats-despite the rain! Live piano music added to the relaxed atmosphere. Goods service-only had drinks so can't comment on the food button chocolate was yummy!!

We always love to pop to "Bar Epernay" when we stay at The Birmingham "Malmaison" in The Mailbox. This time, however, it really did disappoint... There was a noisy Christening function on the Sunday afternoon, which took over 3/4 of the venue. It is not...More

Everytime I come to this establishment the service, food and drinks are always great. I have had some great evenings here and it's always been a pleasurable experience.

I have used Bar Epernay several times now. Always remains positive. This visit was for my husbands birthday, 3 of us went. Cocktails first, then lovely 3 course meal. They did forget vegetables and when we reminded them, they said it would take 20 mins...More

We went on a Friday night for a few drinks after dinner. The drinks are nice (quite pricey) and it is a nice envieonment with the piano playing etc. It's just a bit of a shame that they let it get so full- it ruins...More

Have drank here quite a few times and always a great place to have a relaxed drink with a loved one or friends. Excellent selection of champagnes if your feeling plush! Have never eaten here.

"Bar Epernay is part of one of Birmingham's most exclusive developments, The Mailbox. Perfect, really, when it's target audience is big spenders. It looks as French and sophisticated as it sounds. There's a centrepiece trendy open-flame fire, and cool music, which lunchtimes and evenings emanates live from the revolving grand piano. Bar Epernay serves good, brasserie-style food - lots of fish and seafood like oysters, lobster tail and pan-fried king scallops to accompany a 23-strong champagne offering; four by the glass. There's always a bubbly of the month, such as Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2000, £37.50 (usually £55). Vintage champers and non-vintage prices? Chin, chin! "
