New independent Irish bar D.J. Quinns to open in Birmingham

A new independent Irish bar is set to open on June 1st in Birmingham, offering live music and sports.

Formerly known as Behan’s Bar, the large public house is being transformed by new owners and is currently undergoing an extensive renovation under the name D.J. Quinn’s.

Owned by the very same people behind popular live music venue The Castle and Falcon, D.J. Quinn’s boasts a 200 capacity live music room which plans to showcase both up & coming and established local acts including Wild Irish, viral hit stars Ire-Ish and more exciting acts to be announced soon.

Situated on the High Street, D.J. Quinn’s will launch on Friday, 1st June and continue the celebrations until Sunday the 3rd. The opening weekend will feature live performances from Irish acts such as multi instrumentalist and singer songwriter Ash Sheehan, known for his roles in The Twang and Dead Sea Skulls. Also on the bill are up and coming power folk group The Deluge and acoustic performer James Reidy. A large variety of beers, wines and spirits will also be available to celebrate the opening.

The venue function room will be available for private hire for live performances and parties, making it the the perfect venue for award ceremonies, birthdays, work parties and more.

All live sports including GAA, Rugby and the 2018 World Cup will be aired throughout D.J. Quinn’s on multiple Sky Sports equipped TVs.
