"Plenty of bars and clubs, from the mainstream to something a 'little different'. Also: many restaurants (High End and Faith Street) to enjoy. There is also the NIA, Symphony Hall and the NEC for various shows, conventions etc."
"There are a lot of things. The Bullring shopping centre is only 10 minutes by train for example."
"Lots of places to go out in the evening for food/drinks. It's a cultural city with many art galleries, museums, shops and places to explore."
"There is a lot. There are several pubs and clubs in the city centre and more pubs can be found closer to the university. There are also sightseeing places, museums, restaurants, shops and a mall."
"There is always a good night out to be had in Birmingham. But just like any other city, it can be a little dangerous at times."
"Giant trampoline centre, laser tag, clubs, bars, restaurants, concert venues, exhibition centres, Sea Life Centre, Cadbury World, football including Birmingham City, Aston Villa, and West Brom."
"Everything! So many nightclubs, bars, restaurants, canals, shopping, cinemas, sea life centre, museums, NIA, Christmas markets etc."
"So much choice for a night out in Birmingham, there's Broad St, the Arcadian, and Hurst St which has Snobs nightclub. There's also the Digbeth and Rainbow venues. A lot of variety, definitely caters for all types of people. Birmingham is also fantastic for food, with some incredible independent restaurants. I use the blog 'Independent Birmingham' to find the best foodie spots. Birmingham has everything you would expect the second biggest city to have."
"It is the second biggest city in the UK so of course it has some of the best nightlife. There is practically a night out every day of the week if you think you can hack it! So much choice in terms of music scenes from house to pop and grime chucked in there for good measure."
"Events for everyone. Rainbow for more EDC – nights at Popworld for those who like it cheesy. Standard clubbing night found on Broad Street."
