POP­U­LAR city cen­tre restau­rant An­nexe is to close at the end of July.

The French-themed restau­rant opened in 2011 in the Grade II-listed Cen­tral Hall in Cor­po­ra­tion Street but the owner of the build­ing is now keen to sell it and has told An­nexe it will have to close.

The restau­rant (right) is de­scribed on its web­site as “a re­laxed venue for those seek­ing the nos­tal­gic buzz of vin­tage café-so­ci­ety”.

The venue was known on the city’s restau­rant scene for its themed events such as Moulin Rouge and for Bastille Day this Fri­day.

Man­ager Maija Atanon­soba said: “The own­ers of Cen­tral Hall want to sell the en­tire build­ing so we have been told to move out.

An­nexe is the lat­est restau­rant to shut in Birm­ing­ham after the clo­sure of eater­ies such as Lob­ster Penin­sula.

Ear­lier this month, Two Cats owner Niki Ast­ley an­nounced his Jew­ellery Quar­ter restau­rant was shut­ting at the end of Septem­ber due to “volatile trade”.
