Lost and Found Bar - Birmingham

 Hello Lovelies,


How is it going? Today I grace your eyes with two posts, this one and my Sunday loves post. This post was supposed to be up yesterday but I was just having too much fun at the Clothes Show. Be aware that this post will have A LOT of pictures. Now let's get it on...

So a couple of weeks ago now, I was invited to my first event as a blogger. It was an opening for a new "Victorian, botanical hideaway" right in the centre of Birmingham. This description intrigued me no end and the appearance of my invitation excited me no end.



Such a cute and unique invitation, plus we got to keep the key. I'm really tempted to get a longish chain and make it into a necklace. 

I thought I'd take this moment to show off what I wore for the opening. After much deliberation I went for my trusty River Island Disco Pant dupes and a snazzy top, matched with my studded Primark boots and a studded clutch bag. Here's a couple of pictures.






If I look at all tired in the face picture, it would be due to the fact I'd been in school during the day. But we'll slide past this and get on to the matter in hand. The Bar.

As soon as I stepped inside, I knew it was going be my kind of place. It had a vintage quirky look to it and it just looked awesome. We (being myself, and two fellow bloggers Gemma and Kelsey) walked straight up to the bar and ordered ourselves a cocktail. My first one was called Ms H.G Watson and it was delicious. I am the kind of person that if I have a drink (I'm 70% tea total), I have to have something that doesn't taste of alcohol. Here was our first round and also some other food and drink related pictures:

Midlands Princess, Ms H.G Watson and a Fig and Vanilla Sour




The drinks all tasted brilliant and the food pictured that we tried (little burger bites and salmon goujons) was yummy. I'd love to try some more of their food.

I think it would be safe to say that between the three of us, we tried everything on the sample menu we were given, which looked like this (if you are interested).




Like I said at the beginning of the post I loved the decor of the whole place. It was totally my style, a bit vintagey, a bit kitch, just a bit different from the normal. As a picture is the same as a thousand words, I'll just put some pictures in here...






As you can see, it was split into different areas, a library style area that had seating in, the bar area, then two raised platforms, one of which I managed to take a sneaky picture of in the bottom picture, which looked like little patio areas. The lights were in little bird cages, there were things hanging from trellis, all in all it was amazingly decorated. Even the toilets!!! The toilets were really cool (not something you can say that often). The stall doors were made to look like front doors and there were little girly touches on shelves above the mirrors.

these were the toilet stall doors (so cool)

Overall, a great night with some lovely ladies. I think I will definitely be returning to try some more of their food, maybe for my birthday next august (forward planning)

 I'd like to say thank you to Kelsey and Gemma for being so lovely and for being great new friends, it was like we had known each other for years, it was also great meeting Hayley as well.  

I'd also like to thank the Bar itself for inviting myself and my fellow lovely bloggers to their opening...I think I speak for all of them when I say we enjoyed ourselves a lot. If you would like to  find out more they have a twitter account @n and they also have a website which I'll link here.

Final word on this post have to be about this door....


Behind this bookcase, there was a secret. Sadly we weren't shown what it was. During our time at the bar, no one went in or out. Just as we were walking out at the end, a group of males were taken inside, myself and the two girls, Gemma and Kelsey, tried to see what was inside but we were told that we weren't allowed to look in, so we never got to find out what was behind that door.


Has anyone visited the bar yet? Has this post made you want to go check it out?

Till Next Time,
