A sneak preview of Karaoke Box before its grand VIP opening on November 19
We have had a preview tour of Birmingham newest party venue Karaoke Box at their first location outside London.
The venue, part of Regency Wharf leisure scheme located just off Broad Street, has a cocktail bar area and 11 private rooms where you can drink, eat and most importantly sing to your heart's content!
Karaoke and cocktail bar Karaoke Box and Rub Smokehouse have become the latest operators to set up on Broad Street.
The pair have taken the final two units at the Regency Wharf leisure scheme off the popular nightspot.
Karaoke Box selected the site for its first unit outside of Central London and has signed a new 15 year lease on a 5,500 sq ft courtyard unit at a rent of £14.50 per sq ft.
Nottingham-based restaurant group Rub Smokehouse has also signed a new 15-year lease on the 7,500 sq ft “sky bar” unit at a rent of £9.25 per sq ft.
The lettings follow a period of investment by the scheme’s owner Picton, a property investment company, which was designed to reinvigorate the Regency Wharf estate and make it a key destination in Birmingham’s leisure market.
These initiatives included the commissioning of two cutting edge street murals by London-based professional graffiti and street art company, Graffiti Life.
Regency Wharf will also host a regular street food market, the first of which launched earlier this month.
Laurence Jones, Senior Asset Manager at Picton Capital, said: “With Karaoke Box and Rub Smokehouse now signed, Regency Wharf is on track to reach its full potential.”

Birmingham’s incredible streetfood scene is getting another boost with a new event at Regency Wharf.
The Scoff streetfood collective will host the event on May 9 at the Regency Wharf leisure and restaurant estate, just off Broad Street.
The event will run from 11am until 6pm and also showcase some of the landlord’s recent upgrades.
Laurence Jones, with Picton who own Regency Wharf, said: “We are delighted to be hosting this specialist street food event.
“We anticipate excellent food, great entertainment and the chance for attendees to see the results of our ongoing investment in this scheme, which include two superb new art installations by Graffiti Life.”
And the food on offer should rival the other street food markets in the city.
John Martin, from Scoff Streetfood, said: “If anyone has not yet tried the incredible tastes on offer from streetfood, I’d encourage them to come along to this event.
“We’ve got a great collection of food on offer, all of the very highest standard.”
Now that’s the dull stuff out of the way, what food will actually be here.
Here’s some of the region’s top streetfood that will be at the event.
