Found opposite the gargantuan shopping centre, The Mailbox, diners in southern Birmingham can retreat to the AC Signature Lounge in the AC Hotel for some excellent eats after an extensive session of retail therapy.
Part of the Marriott hotels chain, the AC Hotel is decorated with style, with the AC Signature Lounge acting as the epitome of these aesthetics. A soothing light blue and cream colour scheme, hanging wooden light shades with exposed bulbs and comfortable leather recliners create a relaxing atmosphere, which in turn creates an ideal setting for an indulgent bite and a spot of respite.
The menu is filled with classic British staples, such as hearty burgers, refreshing salads and home-style favourites, yet the real stars are the eclectic assortments of smaller dishes. These are advised to be consumed in a tapas style mentality, picking and choosing from a myriad mouth-watering morsels with friends or family.
Close to the AC Hotel is the Birmingham Canal Old Line and the scenic Peace Gardens, both of which make for a fantastic serene routes to walk off a satisfying meal. There is also, of course, the plethora of shops in The Mailbox, as well as the centre of Birmingham to explore just a stone’s throw away.
