The Juke will be a hub of great food, drink & music, taking over the location of the former Cherry Reds on York Road. It will have an open kitchen with rotating residents, kicking off with Birmingham favourites, the fantastic Pietanic.
Inspired by many of the bands who played at the legendary Ritz Ballroom just a few doors down during the 1960’s, the music will come from a Rock-ola Regis 120 Jukebox. Having spent over 30 years propping up other bars across the Chicago tri-state area, it’s hoped that some of the magic gleaned from these American bars will translate over to the Juke. Expect lesser known tracks from the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s, gems from international performers, modern artists, and also some well-known and loved local heroes.
Alongside the music, you can expect an eclectic yet inclusive range of drinks. From Birmingham’s emerging breweries to fair trade coffee and organic spirits, the aim is to be proud of everything that’s on offer. With the option to drink in or take away, fridges will be well-stocked with a selection of the best craft beer and ale and 7 taps will host to a variety of carefully selected craft beers and ciders from the UK and further afield.
The Juke will be hosting events regularly, ranging from tap takeovers, listening parties, intimate live performances and much more. You can also look forward to the first kitchen residents Pietanic’s delicious dishes such as the Bacon Cheeseburger pie and the Chicken Balti pie from 12-9pm.
Owners Thomas Mee and Chelsie Eason are passionate about good music, food and drink.
“We’ve always been passionate about music and an area like Kings Heath which has such a rich musical history seems the perfect location to open a bar like The Juke. We’re so excited to open our doors and hope that our fusion of great music & beer will be a big hit with locals and more. We’re sure people will love it!”
