Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Reservations
Neighborhood: Ladywood
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! "

didn't eat here but the food did look very nice, however we had a lovely relaxing time people watching whilst slugging down beer and bubbles for the wife. will try a meal next time around but it is worth a visit just for a drink

Lovely atmosphere, excellent cocktails. Epernay is great as a bar and as a restaurant - more of a special occasion place.

Myself and my partner visited Bar Epernay for their Champagne afternoon tea. The restaurant is beautiful, loved the Champagne bell! Highlight of the tea was the fresh hot scones! A lovely relaxed afternoon, and definitely inspired us to want to visit again but next time for a meal at night where on Weds-Sun there is a piano player!

This was my first ever visit to Birmingham and could not believe how trendy the centre now is !
I decided I would like to spend my birthday lunch ( one elderly lady !? ) overlooking the canal and could not have chosen a better place and view.
It was a bitterly cold Monday at the end of January, so practically nobody in the restaurant. However, this did not detract from the cheery ambience with the central ( pretend ) fire burning and the welcoming, helpful staff.
We just had dishes from the "lite bites" menu and my Thai beef strips were delicious, along with the glasses of pink Bollinger champagne - we were even offered extra strawberries !!!

We dined Saturday afternoon for a late lunch, great location overlooking the canal and I have to say I really enjoyed the food. The service was also good we were told there were no tables available so we had to sit in the window at some really low chairs, but we asked again and they found us a nice table for two and we dined. The service was professional and pleasant, and we will definitely return again soon.
