We’re thrilled to be a Festival Partner for this year’s Birmingham Restaurant Festival taking place from 1st to 31st August. Over the years, Birmingham has been named as one of the top food destinations in the UK – with good reason. The city boasts a diverse and vibrant dining scene, from Michelin-starred establishments to street food. Birmingham Restaurant Festival is both a celebration and showcase of what the city’s fantastic restaurants have to offer.

The festival’s very own Alex Nicholson-Evans came to visit us ahead of this year’s #BRestaurantFest, after all we are the Official Hotel! Here’s what she had to say…

Alex Nicholson Evans - Founder of Birmingham Cocktail Weekend

What better way to upgrade your Birmingham Restaurant Festival experience, than with an overnight stay in the architectural icon that is, the Rotunda.

We went to check out this fantastic aparthotel in the city centre, to see what restaurant lovers would have in store. Arriving at Staying Cool at Rotunda, you can’t help but be a little awe struck by the building, it is after all an icon in the city’s skyline. 

Check in was quick and easy, and we were soon on our way up to floor 16 to find our very chic studio apartment

Undoubtedly the first thing to catch our eye was the floor to ceiling windows giving us views-for-days! We won’t judge you if you spend the first 15 minutes of your stay spotting all your favourite buildings in the city, because that’s exactly what we did.

The room itself is stylish and modern. Picture sixties inspired furniture, a big plush bed and all the mod cons you could possibly wish for. Beyond the gorgeous bespoke interiors and those mega views, one of the things we love most about Staying Cool at Rotunda, is the little extras. They’ve thought of everything! 

• Locally sourced coffee? Check
• Oranges and an electronic juicer? Check
• Board Games? Absolutely
• Luxurious toiletries? Of course
• Fluffy bath robes? Naturally
• Snacks? Only the best will do

Take a look at the gallery below for some of our own snaps of the ‘Mini’ studio apartment. It really is as chic as it looks on the website. There are a number of different rooms available, if you fancy something really extraordinary why not treat yourself to the ‘Roadster Penthouse’ – a 5 star rated absolute showstopper of a space!
