Dining clubs and food markets seem to have soared in popularity over the recent years and we’re all for it! Reasonable prices, excessive choice and a buzzing atmosphere are the success criteria, and Digbeth Dining Club hits them all.
We visited in December after a visit to Ghetto Golf, as it’s only across the road; good music was playing and everyone was just eating, drinking and laughing! Perfect Saturday night set-up, without having to go “out out”.
After a few beverages at Ghetto Golf, we were more than ready to (over)indulge at a multitude of the food stalls. Some of the food stalls are there consistently, however, some do change – all the more reason to visit more often…
We started from the entrance and chomped our way through the dining club:
Bare Bones Pizza
Chicken & Mushroom Pizza
Low ‘n’ Slow Smoked
Pulled Pork Burgers with all the trimmings!
Jerk Chicken Sharer with the BEST dips!
Each area of the venue hosts a different vibe, from outdoor heated patio to retro gaming and arts station to chic cocktail bar. They even have DJ sets on so you can cut shapes whilst you cut cakes!
I personally loved the retro gaming and arts section because it was a total sense of nostalgia to see the 90s gaming consoles laden across the sides.
The art station was great too – I was in awe of some of the drawings people were producing, casually over a few beers, and they weren’t even professionals – they just fancied getting creative!
There’s something to eat and drink for everyone without breaking the bank. I’ll admit, I overdid it; sending myself into such a deep food coma that I fell asleep for the entire train journey home… We really enjoyed our evening here and will definitely be returning to continue to eat our way through the different stalls.
