Setting up a Street Cafe

Birmingham City Centre has much to offer by way of its superb high quality public realm. A stylish retail area, extensive pedestrianised streets and a cosmopolitan ‘buzz’ makes it highly attractive for outdoor seating use. We can’t guarantee fine weather all the time, but don’t let that put you off.
