Swim Deep play King City at The Sunflower Lounge

The legendary Sunflower Lounge, hailed by Noel Gallagher as ‘the best club in Britain for aspiring rock and roll stars’, is back with an exciting new look. Situated on Smallbrook Queensway in Birmingham’s booming Southside district, just round the corner from New Street Station, the venue has recently undergone a refit with a 60s-inspired Op Art installation. The new aesthetic will be launched on Saturday 19th November from 7pm with free entry on the night.

The fresh vibe comes from the hard work of local artists Sleep Sparrow and Foka Wolf. Speaking of the refit, manager Ben Drummond said: “We’ve been working closely with two of our favourite local artists and the venue has been enlivened into an eye-popping 1960s inspired haven with Op Art murals and pop culture paste ups. The look has been completed with nods to mid-century design including a Videosphere TV, Pop Art comic books and ‘bad taste made good’ kitsch prints.”

With the new interior comes the promise of 60s-themed nights, blended with the usual indie, disco and good sounds from the past that you’d expect to hear from the Sunflower Lounge balcony decks. Plus you can expect the usual mix of incredible local and touring talent to hit the downstairs stage most nights. The Sunflower Lounge has also issued a zero tolerance policy towards harassment of any sort, alongside the introduction of ‘Ask for Angela’ to ensure all its customers feel safe and welcome when visiting.

Ben Drummond again: “We’d like to invite you all to the relaunch of The Sunflower Lounge, where I’ll be joined on the decks by DJs Alexandra Rose and Sean T. Taylor. We’ll be playing 60s Soul, Beat and Psychedelia on original 45s. Come check it out!”
