The Sky Bar is the pinnacle of Resorts World Birmingham in every sense. Occupying the highest floor (5th) of the development with sweeping views of Pendigo Lake and beyond, this is a genuine destination drawing in a dressed-up crowd to drink, dine and feel exquisite all in sumptuous surroundings. Taking inspiration from Genting's Asian heritage, as well as the most exclusive rooftop bars that have come to define the most prestigious night scene in the world's most exciting cities, The Sky Bar offers a tantalizing selection of signature cocktails that are expertly blended by our talented mixologists. And the theatre doesn't end there as skilled chefs carefully assimilate a symphony of flavours for an expectant audience. Aspirational, Stylish, sophisticated and seductive. The Sky Bar takes a night out to new heights.
