Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited for the first time on a Wednesday afternoon while in Birmingham for a Holly Johnson concert (we travelled from Derby). We were only present for an hour or so, but had a great time due to the lovely clientelle and excellent staff. And the froth printing machine was brilliant! Hope to see you all soon. Thank you! 😍👍❤️

Missing bar used to be amazing! Drag queen Ashleigh Marc was the best and was funny without being rude. After they left we stopped coming as much (we were regulars) since Miss Minnie joined. We find them rude and just not a good host for karaoke which is meant to be fun! Can barely dance in stage without them telling you off. We got shouted at for celebrating our friends birthday, publicly called out over the microphone telling us to shutup infront of the entire bar. Found it very rude and put a real dampener on the evening and put us in a bad mood. It’s a real shame since we used to come every week and now that the drag queen has changed its really put us off.

I have frequented this venue for the past 11 years after moving from the North as an 18 year old..

Missing Bar is the first place I attend when visiting Birmingham City Centre - mainly for the social aspect - I have met the majority of my friendship group here.

The service is great and on point, with a positive shout-out to Jack (manager), Mikey & Rhiannon (behind the bar) and ‘Power-Boss’ duo David and Patsy who are always aiming to improve on the customer experience caring about their guest’s requirements and suggestions.

Whether you are after a quiet social drink during the weekday or a entertaining weekend starting with:-

‘Funk’d Up Friday’ with the most talented resident Drag Queen - Amy LaQueefa (don't forget her ‘Hump Day Cabaret on a Wednesday evening)

Saturday night party with a DJ and the one-&-only Twiggy as my most favourite and unique host,

Sunday is a great day to chill and recover with entertainment from a lovely friend Pam-Catz

If the weekend wasn't ‘nough -

Monday serves us with DJ Mike Emery and some banging tunes!

Tuesday is your time-to-shine or make a happy fool of yourself with karaoke hosted by Ashleigh Mark

Without doubt - This is the place to be whilst visiting the 'Gay Village'

Called in for drinks over pride weekend. Staff were quick to serve despite it being real busy, music was decent and its clean (plus the gents toilets dont stink). As a first experience of the Birmingham scene it made a good impression.

I dont know whats happened to Missing We have been there many a time as a heterosexual couple and have always been welcome and had great times there. We have just called in on the way back from town and had a really embarrassing experience. We stood at the bar and all 3 bar staff completely ignored us. There were not many in there and we stood patiently at the bar but were clearly invisible. I became increasingly uncomfortable but we still said nothing When a man walked up to the bar and ordered straight away My partner said I think we are next weve been waiting a while, the bar man said You are being extremely rude Im refusing to serve you. We were shocked and upset to be honest. Dont know what assumptions they made about us but whatever it was they were wrong. Sadly we can no longer extol the virtues of this bar as friendly welcoming and fun. It was cold excluding and embarrassing which is a shame. It has totally changed and should be avoided. Such a pity
