Rosies gets £1 million facelift on fifth anniversary of opening

One of Westside’s premier nightspots is undergoing a £1 million refurbishment – while remaining open to customers throughout the work.

Rosies Birmingham in Broad Street is enjoying a major facelift exactly five years after the late-night venue opened for the first time.

The rolling improvements will include all-new flooring in the ground floor of the two-storey club, known as the Montana bar, replacement toilets throughout, and facelifts to the venue’s numerous bars.

Work on Rosies, which also underwent a major refurb after taking over from 6 On Broad Street in August 2017, began just over a fortnight ago and should be completed by the middle of this month.

However, despite the extensive work, the nightspot will continue to remain open to the public.

Deputy manager Dean Crawshaw said: “We wanted to keep the premises fresh and give it a facelift that will continue to make it attractive for our customers.

“The work to date has affected capacity, but nowhere near what we would have lost if we had shut. And it hasn’t affected the operation of the club. That was important to us.”

The improvement work starts at the front of the premises, which will see a new Rosies logo, followed by a facelift to the foyer area including new wall art and replacement lighting in the form of large lanterns.

However, the major refurbishment will be to Montana with the wall-to-wall bar enjoying replacement flooring, improvements to the VIP booths, and relocation of the DJ area from the centre of the room to the back.

Mr Crawshaw added: “Montana is the sole room downstairs but the flooring is split into two different designs and also showing some wear and tear.

“So everything is being ripped up and replaced with new flooring. This will mean closing Montana on the day the work is carried out, but the rest of Rosies will remain open.”

As well as the new floor and moving the DJ area, the four booths will be reupholstered and the carpet underneath replaced with the same new flooring.

Rosies, which has three main themed rooms upstairs – Zinc, Retro, and Dao – as well as a comedy club, will also give a facelift to all its bars including a redesign and additional lighting.

Retro, which has two bars, will also see the lighting on the dancefloor relocated, and a fresh look to its walls. Dao will provided what Mr Crawsha described as “unrivalled” sound and lighting for club, live music and comedy sessions.

The final part of the project involves taking out the venue’s three toilet blocks and replacing them, together with new tiling in each.

Mike Olley, general manager of Westside BID, said: “The £1 million investment in Rosies’ refurbishment just shows how the entertainment sector on Westside has returned following Covid-19.

“Rosies is a favourite venue of thousands of party-going customers every week, and the new facilities will draw even more people in.”
