A bar and grill is set to open in Birmingham city centre following a £1m investment, creating more than 50 jobs.

Nude Bar & Grill will open its doors at 38 Bennetts Hill on September 23 with a soft-launch, followed by a more formal opening on October 1.

The venue will be spread over four floors including a bar, restaurant and champagne lounge.

The opening represents a new venture for Donna and Craig Chance, owners of Comfy Pub Co, which runs the Trooper at Wall, The Wine House in Lichfield and Hoof Beats Bar & Kitchen in Brownhills.

The pair have been waiting for nearly a decade to bring a new venue to Birmingham, with the name ‘Nude Bar & Grill’ purchased six years ago as they awaited the right opportunity.

General manager Jolanta Zatlere joined the Nude team after nine years at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse in Birmingham and kitchen manager Stanimir Stoykov joined following 13 years at the Bank restaurant in Birmingham.

Donna Chance said: “We’ve really built our business and our reputation up over the past 10 years and we’ve been waiting so long to come to Birmingham.

“We’re a West Midlands based company and own a variety of bars and restaurants across the region – but we really hope Nude Bar & Grill will be the blueprint for us to take this format nationwide.

“The location we have found is perfect for us, it’s actually a privilege to be moving into such a beautiful building and such a thriving part of the city centre.”

Pre-bookings made to visit Nude Bar & Grill between September 23rd and 30th will receive 50% off food and selected drinks.

Craig Chance said: “I think what we will bring to the city centre is that level of service you expect from a destination venue. There are some fantastic places in Birmingham but our business is based on being top tier when it comes to service.

“We can also offer a great variety over three floors, so whatever sort of night the people of Birmingham are looking for, they can find it with us.”
