Author: Stacey BarnfieldPublished:

Pinball wizards and craft beer fans will be in their element at city centre bar Tilt Birmingham.

Tilt is bringing premium beers and ‘the top 5% of coffee produced in the world’ to the Grade II listed City Arcade off Union Street.

Kirk Sadler and Richard Kimberley, who will use their expertise of CAMRA membership and working for BrewDog, are behind the new venture.

Alongside coffee roasted in Helston in Cornwall, the bar stocks baked goods supplied by BAKE, located in Edgbaston.

A whole corner of Tilt is dedicated to classic pinball machines to ‘increase social interaction and friendly competitiveness’, according to owners Richard and Kirk, who are also keen to host clubs such as mother and baby mornings, book clubs and a pinball children’s club in the morning, when alcohol is not being served.

Tilt’s City Arcade premises also benefits from the new Metro route and a tram stop on nearby Corporation Street.
