They’re a pub and nightclub specializing in funk, soul, ska, and reggae, full of charm, humor, and flair. In the heart of Digbeth, The Night Owl is a soulful and vintage live music venue, bar, and nightclub. The Night Owl is a soul & vintage club and Live music venue in Digbeth, Birmingham, that opened in July 2015. Every Friday and Saturday, there’s excellent live music and club nights. Since its inception in 2015, the 250-person capacity venue on Lower Trinity Street has grown from strength to strength. The Night Owl began as one of the earliest Northern Soul clubs in the Midlands and has now developed into even more throwback music, so there’s something for everyone.
The Night Owl features some of Birmingham‘s best tribute acts, live bands, and DJs, ranging from soul and Motown to disco and funk, 60s garage and psych to nostalgic Britpop and indie from the 1990s. If you’re an early riser rather than a night owl, the enormous, hand-decorated beer garden hosts daytime bottomless brunches with beverages, DJs, and street cuisine ideal for large groups. Finally, The Night Owl may be hired for birthday parties or celebrations, and it has a mezzanine balcony with seating and a bar for club nights.

Over the years, I’ve brought people with various musical inclinations (from Drum and Bass to Metal to Pop/Charts devotees) here. Some have been hesitant and concerned about whether the northern soul scene is ‘for them,’ but five minutes later, they’re in the center of the dance floor praising me in between breaths because they’re shimmying so much.
