Cracking Real Ale Pub
Splendid city centre bar, good prices, great selection of beers.
Digbeth and the East Side - the creative quarter, formerly the industrial heart of Birmingham, now home to the Custard Factory and other havens of creativity
The City Centre in general is nice to walk around, particularly Broad Street.
Have a look at http://digbeth.org/ if you are planning to take a trip around Digbeth. Nicky Getgood is great at keeping up with the goings-on around that quarter of Birmingham.
