The Christmas installation features 88,000 fairy lights, enough to reach the top of Everest, as well as a host of mirrors in a grand sparkling interior.

Once Upon a Time in Birmingham serves drinks that glow, sparkle, and change colour, allowing guests to experience the tastes and smells of Christmas in the most brilliant way. In a world first, it will also offer crystal clear Christmas puddings that refract light like a prism, a magical twist on a festive staple.

You are invited to journey to the glowing heart of the fairy light. Come for tea, cocktails, festive food, drink, dance or a private party at the newest destination in Birmingham located in the old Jamie's Italian restaurant overlooking St Martin's Square. See the Bar Menu here.
