The Nightingale Club
Ranked #82 of 151 Nightlife in Birmingham
Attraction details
Reviewed November 26, 2016 via mobile

Was visiting Birmingham for a weekend so had to check out the scene. Went to Nightingales on the Friday to find it was dead with only one room open (the dingiest one). People don't go out on Friday it seems!

Went back on the Saturday on the advice of the bouncer and it was much better! The downstairs room is very nice, good space to dance but also places to sit. All 3 rooms were open on the Saturday but the other two were again empty. Music was good and mixed well. The club shuts at 6 but empties out by about 3.30... be aware!

A reputation across the UK is well deserved, the 'Gale' has been serving the LGBT+ community across thew west midlands for decades starting in the bad old days as a club owned by the membership but now owned by the same people as own the Loft, Village and a few other venues in the village. A lot of money has been spent to provide the best light and sound system possible, and an outside bar for the smokers is quite unique. Just a shame that they have now got rid of the old first floor piano lounge to become yet another dance floor so the oldies have one less venue to go....

Ridiculously expensive, stupidly long queues everywhere and unbelievably rude staff. Will not go there again. Nope.

Was there with a hen party to see The Pleasure Boys. What a disappointment. Introduced by poor drag act and there were only 2 pleasure boys. One was slightly manic and the other not sure what he was doing. Guess if you were totally inebriated didn't,t matter!!! Boring show. Not worth the money

Wonderful DJ, excellent music!
A tad loud but really good. Excellent smoking area and lots of famous acts performed there in the evenings during gay pride. A tad pricey after 8pm but still good.
