1000 Trades - A Birmingham pub

We champion all forms of craft over three floors of our nineteenth century building – built as a jewellery workshop before becoming a badge factory, and then the 1000 Trades pub we are today.

Four real ales, seven craft beers, eleven natural wines on tap, with a rotating, diverse food offer including guest chefs. Our soundtrack is prepared in partnership with Birmingham’s music community, and there's local artwork showcased on the walls.

1000 Trades is a space for the community, whether you are here for a pint. Live music, comedy, celebrations or a quiet place to work, you will always find a warm welcome.

Our Food

Quality and variety is at the heart of our kitchen. Guest chefs take the reins in the evenings. Sundays are all about roasts and weekday lunchtimes see our POSH Hot Sandwiches served up.

Our Venue

At its heart, 1000 Trades is a space for the community, as comfortable pouring a craft ale as we are being the space for private events, celebrations, and your newest workspace in Birmingham.
