Been here before and did not mind it. Large seating area inside but also a few outside. Good range of beers. Not far from New Street Station if you want to avoid the bars in that area

Hi, - The Vic has a DJ upstairs in the Jim Beam Rocks Room for dancing and a selected playlist in the main bar, more suitable for drinks and socialising. Cheers!
