We love Brum: raise a glass to that!

And now for a little tipple …. take a short stroll from Hotel La Tour to the marvellous Victorian splendour of Great Western Arcade and indulge your love of fine wine with a glass or two at the splendid Loki.

A boutique wine merchant and wine bar, Loki’s stated aim is to make a wine shop/bar which is “accessible and unpretentious”. It’s got a great, laid-back style – ask for director and wine expert Phil and tell him we sent you – and is one of the only places outside London to offer customers the experience of trying up to 24 wines by the glass at any one time.

Sit and sip

Sit and sip

It’s a modern approach and one you might sneak into your diary for a lunch meeting, after- work drink or even a first date? (Let us know how you get on: if things move onto dinner a deux, we look forward to seeing you at our own gorgeous Aalto Restaurant.)

You can sample at leisure in the shop or upstairs wine lounge and a Loki Wine Tasting Card allows you to taste a frequently updated selection of fine, boutique and award-winning wines. Take your pick from whatever’s sampling from the specially-imported wine preservation machines – keeps ’em all fresh – for as little as 25p a glass. When you’ve found The One, you can take it home and enjoy or relax in the tasting room, perhaps sharing a plate of cold meats or cheeses to go with your wine.

And there’s really only one thing you can say to that: cheers!
