This was my first visit and it was nice. The bar had a relaxed atmosphere and the drinks were reasonably priced for The Mailbox. Staff were friendly and were quick off the mark when someone smashed a glass.

Pure class.. Extensive food menu with an excellent choice of champagnes, wines and beers all served by very friendly and attentive staff. What makes it even more special is the relaxing live background music played by local aspiring musicians. Not the cheapest of bars but...More

I'm in agreement with DavidH and when we went to Bar Epernay a few months ago a chef was offensive to one of our group and the manager didn't want to do anything about it which is how places like this go down and lose...More

It was lovely!! I went there with my girlfriend and thoroughly enjoyed the cocktails. Two for One makes it great value and the staff are happy to make anything despite it not being on the menu or recommend other cocktails from the menu.

"Bar Epernay is part of one of Birmingham's most exclusive developments, The Mailbox. Perfect, really, when it's target audience is big spenders. It looks as French and sophisticated as it sounds. There's a centrepiece trendy open-flame fire, and cool music, which lunchtimes and evenings emanates live from the revolving grand piano. Bar Epernay serves good, brasserie-style food - lots of fish and seafood like oysters, lobster tail and pan-fried king scallops to accompany a 23-strong champagne offering; four by the glass. There's always a bubbly of the month, such as Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2000, £37.50 (usually £55). Vintage champers and non-vintage prices? Chin, chin! "
