Popular restaurant to close
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.
“The restaurant until July 29.
“Our Bastille Day event will go ahead as we planned and we are still taking bookings.” will remain open
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”.
