Reopening April 12th with a 7 day long party and brand-new Food Märkt.

Digbeth based Zumhof Biergarten has announced it will reopen officially on the 12th April, complete with brand-new second floor street food offering and 7 day long opening party.

The brand-new Zumhof second floor will house the Zumhof Junkyard bar and Zumhof Food Märkt, with three independent and local kitchens now operating in the former Air Nightclub, including Bonehead, Zuki and Meat Meets Bun – a brand new burger shop from renowned Birmingham food blogger, The Fat Foodie.

With the three new additions joining residents Rudy’s Neapolitan Pizza and Schwënker, Zumhof Biergarten is now primed for the first phase of the government’s roadmap to reopening. Along with the food, revellers will find an outside biergarten, fire-pit heated tipi, and outdoor stage set in 4000 square foot of space of the Custard Factory car park.

In launching Zumhof Food Märkt on level 2 of the building, Zumhof becomes the second site for city centre-based Bonehead, whose fried chicken has garnered cult status in Birmingham. Joining them is Japanese street food concept Zuki bringing ramen, katsu curries and small plates to Digbeth for the first time.

Meat Meets Bun will be a first-of-its-kind concept for Birmingham, with award-winning blogger and Instagram star Fat Foodie crossing over into the hospitality business. Meat Meets Bun will use sustainable retired dairy cattle from acclaimed butcher Meat Matters, with a choice of four beef burgers alongside their vegan ‘Air’ burger. Burgers range from his take on a cheeseburger to the ‘Black and Blue’ with black pudding crumb, stilton cheese and chilli jam.

To celebrate its reopening from April 12th, Zumhof Biergarten has seven days of live entertainment, DJ’s, and acts all gracing the outdoor stage. Rinse FM and local legend Tom Shorterz kicks off a week that also features Triste, Callum Ashton, and Call Me Unique. The week ends with a pop-up record store from Moseley Vinyl Club on Sunday 18th April, providing the opportunity to source hard-to-find records of all genres.

Zumhof specialises in Bavarian and Czech beer, with weekly deliveries of unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell direct from Pilzen, alongside championing local breweries such as Purity and Digbrew.

Chris Hardy, who goes by the moniker Fat Foodie, said: “I’m feeling honoured and blessed to be working alongside the independents that I’ve loved and championed through my page since I started. I can’t wait to feed the masses through Meat Meets Bun!

From back in the day when I use to rave here, to now flipping burgers on the same dance floor. This place holds a lot of good memories and here’s to making a load more!”.
