Author: Stacey BarnfieldPublished:

Birmingham Press Club members attending its regular First Thursday networking night on April 7 are in for a special treat.

For the club has been invited to the city’s newest four-star hotel, the Park Regis, which has officially opened its doors to guests.

Park Regis is located in the former Auchinleck House on Broad Street, which has received a £50 million renovation to transform the building into a modern silver-clad hotel offering 253 deluxe rooms, two junior suites and the largest presidential suite in Birmingham.

Positioned as a hotel for both leisure and business travellers, Park Regis Birmingham houses an à la carte restaurant, all-glass Saki Bar and Pan Asian Fusion Restaurant on the 16th floor, as well as an executive level complete with conference and meeting spaces, a business lounge with executive check-in facilities, dry spa and gym.

Park Regis Birmingham is the brand’s first hotel in Europe but 15th globally, with locations in Australia, Asia and the UAE.

Press Club Director Stacey Barnfield talked about the hotel for one of his ‘Barnfield’s Brum’ updates in his role as Chairman of Downtown Birmingham in Business, after attending the topping-out ceremony earlier this year.

Press Club members are requested to meet on the fourth floor of the hotel in its 1565 Restaurant & Bar from 5.45 pm

But remember – to take advantage of the ‘free drinks’ offer you must be a signed-up member of the Press Club.
