Asylum bar was first opened in 1985 and ever since it was one of the places where legends were born. The venue was purposely designed for concerts, and it has a seating capacity of 600 people. The pub has an amazing history with performers such as Of Mice and Man, The Automatic, Pierce the Vail, Trivium, Hit the lights and the list goes on.
The venue is found in Birmingham's heart, so there are several ways to get there by commute routes:
By train and tube: the nearest train station is Snow Hill (about 3 minutes away from venue) followed by the stations New Street and Moor Street (about 10 minutes away).
By bus: you can take any buses #7, 9, 16, 74, 79 coming from centre - they all have stations near the venue.
By car: if you’re coming from artery B4100, turn to Bond Street followed by Hampton Street and you can’t miss the stunning background of Asylum’s entrance.
International: from the International Airport of Birmingham, you can take bus 900, get off at Pavillion station and take the bus 19W until St Paul’s Metro Shop; then, take the bus 16W until you reach Hampton Street, which is just a few minutes away from the venue.
There are a few parking places in front of the building but there are parking lots nearby and the pay per hour starts from 2 £. Most of them offer free parking during the night; plus, every car park has yellow lines to accommodate drivers with disabilities.
Accessibility for people with special needs
The entrance has no stairs, and ground floor of the building is equipped with toilets. Accessible seating option is also available, but if you require a wheelchair accessible seat, it is strongly recommended to give the management some prior notice. A couple of days before the show will suffice.
