Six-figure refurbishment planned for waterside bar

Pitcher & Piano’s Birmingham venue is set to receive an £800k overhaul of its interior.

The Brindleyplace bar, which is one of the brand’s flagships, overlooks the water’s edge and will reopen in October with a brand now look.

The ground floor will see a fluted bar front, a new colour palette for seating and mid-height booths with table lamps in an effort to create a more homely feel.

Elements include a double-sided light bulb wall and a full height green wall with an illuminated ‘&’.  On the lower ground floor, herringbone wood panelling will be added to some areas, and a photo booth will be installed.
Pitcher & Piano’s refurbishment will see the venue’s covers grow to 168, including canal-side tables.

The external areas on both the ground and lower ground floors will create an al fresco space.
There will also be the addition of a bookable private dining space, alongside bookable spaces for drinks occasions, for guests looking to celebrate.
Geoff Webber, the director of operations at Pitcher & Piano, said, “We’re really excited to announce that Pitcher & Piano Birmingham, one of our most popular venues that has been in Brindleyplace for over 20 years, will be receiving an extensive refurbishment.

“We have invested a significant amount – over £800k – in giving the inside and outside spaces a complete overhaul. The bar is much loved by its regulars and a stalwart of the thriving hospitality scene in Brindleyplace. Pitcher & Piano is for every occasion: welcoming guests from day to night, whether it’s a special event or just after-work drinks. We can’t wait to reopen our doors in October and show Birmingham the new space.”
