Digbeth

Midnight City, was situated underneath an even more famous venue, The Moat House
It attempted to provide bands on the same lines as the famous Mother’s with bands such as The Who, Cream, Family. It staged allnighters, but was only open for a few months.

Here is a piece from berniew on the Birmingham History Forum

Quote:
The problem was that it didn’t have a drinks licence ,although the owner or his dad owned The Moat House which was directley above it. It seems that the club had a reputed drugs problem and the police took to waiting until the headline band opened up and raided the place ,this soon led to closure ,pity

I visited there a couple of times, and as beniew said, it’s a pity it didn’t last longer.
