Fast-growing wine bar chain set to uncork Birmingham venue

How the new wine bar will look

A new wine bar is set to open its doors in Birmingham this Autumn at 3 Colmore Row.

Situated in the heart of the city’s Colmore Business District (Colmore BID), Vagabond’s latest site marks its first opening outside of London. The 4,000 sq ft, 200-plus capacity Birmingham bar will offer guests a selection of wines from around the world, including Vagabond’s own English Wines that are made in its Urban Winery in south-west London.

All wines are available via Vagabond’s self-dispensing wine machines

The venue is set to be Vagabond’s 10th venue.

Vagabond’s managing director, Matt Fleming, who grew up in Birmingham said: “We’re seriously thrilled to be opening our newest bar in Birmingham. We’ve had our eyes on national – and international – expansion since before the pandemic, and Birmingham has always been marked as our first non-London opening. My own love for the city aside; it has one of the best food and drink scenes in the UK and we think Vagabond will fit in perfectly with its wine-loving residents. The growth of the F&B sector in the city over the years is truly exciting, and we can’t wait to be a part of its future. Plus, now my Mom now has somewhere to enjoy a great glass of wine!”

Vagabond has appointed Anna Slaby as its newest general manager, who has worked in the industry for 18 years; four of which have been in Birmingham.

“It feels so good to be back in my home city and to have the opportunity to bring our extensive array of wines to the people of Birmingham. I know I speak on behalf of the entire Vagabond team when I say that we are really looking forward to sharing this concept, in a way that makes wine-tasting an interactive and accessible experience for all,” added Fleming.

Vagabond Birmingham will be open seven days a week and is set to open to the public from Friday 22 October 2021.
