Vinoteca Birmingham to close within a year of opening

19th May 2023 | Jack Oliver

Vinoteca’s first restaurant outside of London is set to shut its doors, less than a year since it opened.

The wine bar arrived at Birmingham’s Paradise Estate in July 2022, but has struggled with financial problems in a post-Pandemic landscape.

The 4,500 sq ft venue will close on May 27.

Vinoteca’s remaining five restaurants in the Capital will remain open.

“The move is in answer to difficult trading conditions during and post-pandemic which has had a huge impact on leisure operators across the country”, the company said in a statement.

“The challenges of a much-changed economic landscape over the past 12 months of rising costs, inflation, spiralling energy charges and regular train strikes have proved too great for a site which Vinoteca had hoped to continue to grow over the coming years.”
