Snobs Back With A Bang With A Successful Relaunch Night.

On Wednesday 13, 13th March, we headed to Broad Street for the VIP launch party at Snobs’ new venue!

One of the best-loved nightclubs in Birmingham, Snobs has inhabited several locations around the city, leaving its original home in Paradise Circus for a popular spot in Smallbrook Queensway in 2014. As a part of the city’s broader regeneration plans, Snobs was forced to close its doors again on 2nd March and paid a fond farewell to the popular venue with an epic sold-out closing-down party.

The turnover between the closing of one door and the opening of the next was rapid. At its new home at Cumberland House, in Birmingham’s ‘Golden Mile’, Snobs Wednesdays returned only eleven days after the old venue shut. The amount that the team have accomplished in such a short time is awe-inspiring, and the venue is shaping up to be a much-needed addition to Broad Street after the loss of Pryzm and Velvet.

Iconic

The iconic Snobs faces are back on the walls, the club’s name is up in lights, and some epic light displays are inside. The DJ booth is a disco ball and is quite the sight to behold, and with infinity mirrors, wall murals and mirror balls all around, there is plenty to look at.

As the venue has just opened, and we were at a VIP launch night, not everything was available for use (we still had a fantastic time), so when it’s fully ready, Snobs will be cooking with gas. These things are to be expected at a new venue, though, so it was nothing out of the ordinary and did not take away anything from our fantastic experience at the venue. From what we have seen, this place will be unstoppable once everything is running at full throttle.

What was exceedingly obvious was the potential this venue has. The vision boards for the three rooms look hugely impressive, and the tunes played all night were epic. Fans of Snobs tend to seek out the club for its music, which appeals to a wide range of people, particularly those looking for alternative throwback bangers. From Paramore to Sophie Ellis Bexter, the press party setlist was fantastic, and patrons of the club night
agreed that the tunes certainly made the evening.

All 45 staff members from the Smallbrook venue have kept their jobs at the new site.

What was also lovely to see was the familiar faces behind the bar. All 45 staff members from the Smallbrook venue have kept their jobs at the new site, and around 15 more jobs have been created by the increase in passing trade. The staff were friendly, the drinks flowed quickly, and we had a fantastic time.

We had a brilliant time and can’t wait to return in a few weeks to see how the venue is coming together! In the meantime, Snobs is still worth visiting for a great night out! Counteract would recommend that you guys check it out. If you’re a student, you must take advantage of their offers, especially on Wednesday nights. Just give it a go.
