How Do I Choose The Right Venue For A Corporate Event?

Seeking the perfect hosts for your company’s next corporate event? Well look no further than Bierkeller for the ideal experience.

With four superb locations across England, our venues offer everything you need.

Situated in Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham and Birmingham, Bierkeller sits right in the heart of each of these major cities.

We’ve carefully chosen addresses with ideal accessibility, making it as convenient as possible for your party. Of course, holding your corporate event in a central spot is ideal for travel as well as parking. 

This is especially beneficial if you wish to take in the local sights ahead of your visit. Each of the four places offers something unique, and being in the heart of the city opens the door to a world of options that ensure you maximise the fun during your trip.


Manchester is a large, vibrant city situated in the north-west of England.

Many perceive it to be the home of Britpop music, and it is steeped in culture. If you love a spot of shopping – and let’s face it, who doesn’t? – then a trip to the Trafford Centre should be high on your list.

Alternatively, why not stroll through the beautiful and picturesque Fletcher Moss Park & Botanic Gardens or visit the iconic set of Manchester’s very own Coronation Street and step foot on those famous cobbles.

At the Manchester Bierkeller, you can take your seat in Shooters Sports Bar, Rack ‘n’ Roll or Bierkeller areas spread over two floors with a total of four bars.

There is in excess of 20 TVs, three projector superscreens and one large LED superscreen.

In addition, there are five American Pool tables and two full-sized shuffleboards.


Liverpool is home to The Beatles, seen by many as the greatest band of all time. So, when in Rome – or, to be precise, Liverpool – you should hop on a Beatles Tour Bus for a musical experience extravaganza and a trip down memory lane.

Located on the famous River Mersey, the Royal Albert Dock combines Liverpool’s heritage with its present day culture. Ideal for a stroll, grab a coffee and just appreciate the magnificence.

In Liverpool, Bierkeller is located on the Royal Albert Dock and has a stunning large biergarten overlooking the fabulous area.

You can sit in the brand new Bierkeller Lodge, the Shooters Sports Bar, Rack ‘n’ Roll, or our world famous Bierkeller room all laid out across two floors.

No shortage of TVs here either with 65 available to watch.

Like Manchester, this venue also offers projector screens and a large LED superscreen too. We also have brand new virtual darts lanes available on the Shooters bar.


Famed for Sherwood Forest and Robin Hood, Nottingham can be found in the East Midlands region of England. As one of only a handful of places to be honoured as ‘City of Literature’ by UNESCO, it boasts a cultural appeal to thousands of visitors each year.

It is a city with some wonderful architectural sights and two large capacity theatres as well as a number of more intimate venues.

Head to our Nottingham home, and you’ll be spoilt for choice. Offering the Bierkeller, Shooters Sports Bar, and Rack ‘n’ Roll set over three floors with a large bier garden featuring two outdoor screens.

Play on one of our six English Pool tables. Alternatively, if you are a fan of the arrows, we have four darts lanes with an additional two for practice.

And for your viewing pleasure, Nottingham Bierkeller boasts a total of 20 TVs – all of them 60 inches – and three projector screens as well as two large superscreens.


Second only to London in terms of size, the city of Birmingham is situated smack bang in the middle of the country.

The National SEA LIFE Centre is something that appeals to everyone and has some fascinating oceanic exhibits for you to explore.

Why not pop along to Cadbury World? The tour takes you on a Willy Wonka-like journey through the history of chocolate. With 14 zones to navigate, you will be an expert on the confectionery by the end of your visit.

Birmingham Bierkeller has all the similar viewing features as its sister locations.

Then load it up with a selection of delicious toppings which will have you salivating at the prospect. Streaky bacon, cheese, BBQ pulled pork, jalapeños and fried onions. Sounds good, hey?

If German sausages are your thing, then our Bratwurst cart will definitely get your taste buds going. We have plain, spicy or vegan frankfurters all served on a pretzel bun with tomato sauce, crispy onions and mustard.
