Bar Opus – A quick look at the launch…

Out In Brum - Bar Opus - InteriorIn an age of uncertain financial futures diversification is important if you want to protect your business from the ups and downs.  The Opus team, who’ve successfully been running Opus restaurant for a decade, and for eighteen months the stylish and tasty Café Opus, now add another string to their bow – Bar Opus.

You’ll find them in the shiny One Snow Hill building on the ground floor, serving cocktails, wines, beers, breakfasts, lunches, and evening sharing plates, in their usual understated oh-so-cool manner.  With the arty lighting and grey hues you could be in any smart bar anywhere in the world.

Out In Brum - Bar Opus - MartinisNot in any smart bar though can you sip a Langley’s No. 8 Martini (£8.50) – a recent entry to the gin scene that’s distilled in our very own Langley Green, and that’s taking the UK by storm.  The cocktails we tried were all good, but do have a Martini if you’re a gin fiend like us.  We also thought the Figgy Pudding cocktail (Jim Bean Honey, Fig, Pear, Port, Egg – also £8.50) was impressively different and a real creamy winter warmer. We also enjoyed their own Opus Lager.

We’ll report back when we’ve eaten here.  They offer breakfast 7am-11am, and an all day menu 7am-3.30pm.  Breakfast includes a full English (£9.50), pastries (£6.50), and everything else you’d expect.  The delicious sounding day menu includes delights such as poached haddock brûlée (£8.50), and slow braised pork cheeks (£10.50), while the Out In Brum - Bar Opus - Open Kitchenevening menu post 5pm has just three items – meat or fish sharer (both £14.50) and a veggie sharer (£10.50, I think).  There’s a very open kitchen, so you can sit on the kitchen bar and watch dinner being prepared.

Good luck on the first few weeks team Opus – I’m sure we’ll be seeing quite a bit of you.
