Danny O'Revey left this review about Mal Bar (Malmaison)

Modern hotel bar in the Mailbox complex in central Birmingham.

Really doesn't look that big or that much from the stairs up to the Mailbox, but its much larger than you could imagine. Polished terazzo floor, high ceilings, its very light and airy. There are large padded pillars and a modern chrome bar, with high tables and stools with some sofas and drum like tables. Contemporary middle of the road background music.

Not always my cup of tea this kind of place, but its actually quite sleek abd the space is nice. However, what always gets me about this type is they class themselves as upmarket and classy, and you pay for that privilege, but they can't even offer a quality beer. Very lazy to me. Keg John Smiths at £4 a pint, though they do have Purity in bottles. If I was picking a hotel bar to drink in though, the Pub du Vin is the place that gets it right for me, not here.
