Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced that one of Birmingham’s most iconic landmarks, the Hyatt Regency Birmingham, received a $10-million investment for its refurbishment that includes a brand new bar and restaurant concept.
The luxury 319-room hotel located on Bridge Street opposite the International Convention Centre (ICC) first opened in 1990. Refurbishment of the guestrooms, suites and the hotel’s eight conference rooms and ballroom were already completed, with the bar and restaurant set to re-launch this summer.
The new-look bar will be styled on a traditional tavern with a contemporary twist, and include a terrace onto Bridge Street. Offering a range of beers, including local ales, cocktails and wine, the menu will have pub classics in addition to reflecting Birmingham’s Asian influences.
Hyatt Regency Birmingham also has the Amala Spa and Club, including a 52-foot indoor pool, gym, sauna and steam room, six therapy suites and a nail bar.
A number of local suppliers were appointed to support the refurbishment, including Kidderminster-based Brintons, which supplied 9,257 square feet of carpet to the hotel.
Mario Flanagan is the GM of the Hyatt Regency Birmingham.
