Subway City. The underground hidden gem, which probably isn’t that hidden in Birmingham. When first looking at the nightlife that Birmingham has to offer many find they are limited to the likes of Broad Street and the generic chain bars, but Birmingham has many hidden, dingy clubs which tend to hide under the viaducts around the city. One of these clubs is Subway City. Subway City literally is in a viaduct. It doesn’t look pretty, and it’s definitely a club to wear already ruined shoes. The music however is what you expect from an underground club, good dance music, remixes and hard house. Once upon a time Tuesday used to host 90’s night, listening to the likes of Hathaway, Brandy and even Spice Girls (remixed of course) an upstairs room even consisted of Sega Megadrives and Ninendo 64s. If you’re going to do 90’s you might as well do it right. Now Tuesdays do host a similar event called ‘Fat Tuesdays’, expect old school tunes but all focused around the dance arena.
One of the key attractions to Subway City is the prices. A Tuesday before midnight is £7 which gets you 10 free drinks. And it doesn’t trick you. One drink is a vodka and mixer for example, which some clubs would class as two drinks. Other deals and big nights include Thursdays (11pm-6am) and Fridays (10pm-4am), and mainly Saturday nights which are insane. Don’t expect a classy crowd, posh clothes of somewhere to sit. Expect queueing in a subway, sticky floors and hard house to match.
