Looking for Fun (apparently the current term is ‘Competitive Socializing’, but to us it`s always been Fun here ‘one way or the other’ since 1920 … and it still is!)? If your answer is ‘yes’ then Joe Joe Jim’s Bar, at the Lickey Hills in South Birmingham, is just the place for you … and we’re dog-friendly too !

Come and enjoy the Joe Joe Jim’s Bar experience; take a drink from our carefully selected beers, wines and spirits selection, sample Huskies range of artisan fries, enjoy a great live band or comedian, play a wide range of retro games – from ‘penny pushers’ to Sega Rally – then add a sprinkle of quirk and rustic chic.


With a games and amusement arcade dating back to 1920 you can be assured of a great range of retro games  to enjoy.  Combine this experience with a rustic bar offering a wide-range of hand-picked alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, Huskies serving delicious artisan fries to eat-in or take away and live entertainment with great music and comedy acts and you have a unique venue for a great night out or we can be booked for your party or event. Oh, and did we mention pick ‘n’ mix?


As the name suggests, at Joe Joe Jim’s Bar you can relax in a comfortable, friendly setting and enjoy a range of drinks while you socialise or play games.

Fancy a Sega Rally or Daytona challenge, some pinball or trying your luck on our ‘penny pushers’? Then we’ve got you covered with retro games our speciality.
