Popped in here on a weekday evening for pre dinner drinks. Service was a bit slow, which was strange as loads of staff hanging around. Comfortable surroundings, so overall a decent drinks option.

Dear Peter I am really sorry to hear about your recent disappointment. We recently upgraded our Afternoon tea offering and so all vouchers purchased before the 1/11/14 were for the Epernay afternoon tea. The new Epernay full afternoon tea which launched on Saturday 1/11/14 has...More

This bar is stylish and relaxed, with a pianist playing soothing music. The service is excellent with a wonderful atmosphere and ambience as well.

Description
"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!
