The Night Owl is The Midlands’ finest soul and retro club. An intimate live music venue set in the heart of Digbeth, the Creative Quarter of Birmingham.

Based on Lower Trinity Street in Digbeth, The Night Owl is the perfect club for any fan of music from days gone by. Taking its name from the Northern Soul song of the same name by Bobby Paris, The Night Owl was the first ever purpose built Northern Soul and Motown club, opening its doors in 2015.

Since its opening , The Night Owl has gone from strength the strength, expanding its music genres to include much loved retro genres spanning decades (as well as record collections!) Soul is and always will be at The Night Owl’s core, but music fans can expect Motown, ska, funk, disco, garage, psychedelia, rock and roll, Britpop, indie and more coming from tribute and live bands and respectful Birmingham DJs every week, both in the day and night.


A sprung wooden dance-floor, designed by Stax Creations enables safe acrobatics of any type of dancing, from classic Northern Soul, to kicks and flips of 1970s hip hop, and disco moves and grooves at Soul train dance offs. The venue also features a modern spin on the vintage interiors and hand painted paisley murals on the walls and stage. The DJ booth is kitted out with both vinyl turntables and CDJs with the highest quality sound.
