Just east of Regent's Park, Sadler's Wells is a performance venue dedicated solely to the art of dance, including tango, experimental, hip-hop, and ballet. Originally constructed in 1683, the glass-and-brick building housed five different theatres over the centuries. Most recently reopened in 1998, Sadler's Wells now contains two performance spaces: the 1,568-seat auditorium and the smaller Lilian Baylis Studio. The theatre hosts shows by local dance companies, such as the Birmingham Royal Ballet, as well as international performers like the Cuban Ballet Revolución and Ukrainian-born Ivan Putrov. The venue also has three bars and a café serving modern European fare.

Insider Tip:

For post-theatre drinks, walk to the nearby Dollar Grills & Martinis for unusual handcrafted cocktails like the Rockstar Martini, made with lemongrass-infused vodka, Licor 43, fresh apple, and vanilla sugar.
