Team behind Peaky Blinders pub to open Birmingham hotel
Tom O’Rourke is bringing the Garrison back to the city with a 12-bedroom hotel and bar opening in Digbeth.
Made famous for being the headquarters of the Shelby gang in the hit BBC show, the hotel will replace O’Rourke’s on the corner of Oxford Street and will be less than a mile from the original Garrison, which was sold four years ago for £183,000.
O’Rourke has run The Peaky Blinders pub in Dale End for the past five years and, after being inundated with visitors about the show, wanted to create a more authentic experience for fans.
He told Birmingham Live: “The Garrison is coming back to Birmingham! It’s a fantastic part of Brummie history and we’re really excited about opening.
We’ve had O’Rourke’s for a while and, to me, it looks just like the Garrison from the series.
It’s the same design and has the same layout.”
Building work is expected to be complete within the next three to four weeks.
