New images revealed of Birmingham city centre venue

New images of the building which used to house the legendary Bobby Browns night club getting ready to reopen as the new Verve Lounge in Birmingham city centre have been revealed

The Verve Lounge is setting up home at 52 Gas Street with an official public opening on Saturday 3 February, creating at least 12 new jobs.

Mike Olley, general manager of Westside BID, said: “The name Bobby Browns is a famous one to anyone who was out and about in town in the 1980s, 90s and early 2000s, and it’s fantastic to have the building reimagined and reopening as the Verve Club.

“We welcome the rejuvenation of this section of Gas Street, and are looking forward to the new fun-seekers who will soon be enjoying themselves here.”

The iconic building originally served as a gun factory and was later used as stables for the adjacent canal. It was once occupied by the legendary Bobby Brown’s nightclub, which opened in the 1980s before closing in 2003.

Now, under the helm of Reece Chauhan, Verve Lounge is set to open with a capacity of 250 people.

Chauhan said: “Verve Lounge is not just a bar – it’s a lifestyle. We wanted to create a space where people can escape the ordinary and immerse themselves in a world of cultural comforts, taste, and entertainment.”

To celebrate the opening, Verve Lounge is hosting an exclusive launch event on Thursday 1 February, with the venue officially opening to the public on Saturday 3 February.
