We’re reopening our gin garden – and this year it’s even bigger!

As part of of our 11 weeks of summer celebrations, we’re opening our (container) doors to bring you a botanical gin haven and an extra special outdoor Digbeth Fanzone for the 2018 Fifa World Cup right in the centre of Digbeth! 

As part of this transformation a new bar will take residence and the garden will also be extended to make room for more summer DJ takeovers, themed quiz nights and our 650th birthday party which will be unlike anything else this side of town.


We’ve been working hard hand picking over 30 of our favourite gins (making sure they all taste just as good as they look…) so you can enjoy the best summery drinks al fresco. Those who aren’t a fan of the juniper stuff can enjoy the refreshing taste of Malibu as the coconut concoction takes over the pub, as well as seasonal handmade cocktails or an Aperol Spritz at the opening party that we’re sure you’ll love!

Some of the wildest independent party brands in Birmingham will host Saturdays outback in our beer garden with brands including: Sum Cellar, The Night Owl, House of Jealous Lovers, Sam Redmore, MOHO, Seedy Sonics and more in charge of your summer soundtrack – meanwhile The Old Crown will be hosting Phoenix nights and Peep Show quizzes with celebrity guests along with weekly Friday night garden parties. 

The Old Crown’s 11 weeks of summer kicks off this Friday and will take place every weekend until Saturday 28th August.

See you there!
