Bar & Restaurant
With an audience of thousands in the nearby Colmore Row Business District, the Great Western Arcade is a great place to launch your retail idea. A Victorian arcade of shops, with neighbours ranging from Jaeger to Mr Simms sweet shop, welcome to one of Birmingham’s most treasured destinations. This space is next to Jaeger and vegetarian restaurant 1847, and opposite a ‘Best of Brum’ pop-up shop. It consists of two floors, with most of the retail action designed to take place on the ground floor. As a former newspaper HQ, the décor is simple and functional – you might want to think about fresh ways to bring the space to life. Upstairs there’s also a spacious, carpeted room with frosted windows. Footfall is medium but steady throughout the week. You’ll be closest to Snow Hill station, which is a 3-minute walk away. The city’s main train station New Street is just over a 10-minute walk away.
