You are wanted in The Garrison, by order of The Peaky Blinders. Hidden away on our arena concourse is our brand new Speakeasy…but will you be able to find it?


Launching at Jeff Lynne’s run of shows this week – the doors to our 1920’s style Speakeasy, inspired by the legendary Peaky Blinders, will officially open.

The hit TV series, The Peaky Blinders, is set on the streets of post-war Birmingham with The Garrison pub acting as the main focus for the Shelby clan…and now you can experience a taster of their local watering hole right here at Arena Birmingham. Our limited capacity bar comes complete with a private booth– just like the one you’d find the Shelby’s talking “business” in, as well as comfy pub seating so you can chill in ultimate style before heading into the arenabowl for your show.

Our secret Speakeasy will be manned by staff fully kitted out in the distinctive Peaky Blinders gear – but don’t worry, no brawls tolerated here – the guys will be on hand to rustle up some seriously tasty bevs!  The bar will serve up a carefully selected range of premium gins alongside popular choices from local brewers Sadlers –  including their successful range of Peaky Blinder ales and their very own Peaky Blinder spiced gin.

In a first for the venue, the Speakeasy will also stay open for one hour after as our official post-show bar, giving you guys the chance to relax and unwind before hitting the road!  

So if you are coming to a show at Arena Birmingham, make sure you hunt the Garrison. Hint – make your way to block 11 and look around for your favourite book…slide open the door and you’re in!

With limited capacity to make sure you get to experience the intimacy of the bar, we recommend you guys arrive early to claim your seat or stick around after the show and get ready to experience The Garrison.
