Hospitality group D&D London has chosen a spectacular location for its first Birmingham venture. Orelle finds itself on the 24th floor of the city’s tallest office building, 103 Colmore Row. Rising from Birmingham’s busy business epicentre, the site offers unparalleled panoramic views of the entire city. A truly versatile space, Orelle boasts a restaurant, bar, all-day cafe, and terrace, where diners can enjoy modern French fare in an elegant setting.
The main restaurant has a sophisticated atmosphere, thanks to purple and blue hues and night sky-esque lighting. High ceilings, combined with floor-to-ceiling windows and an open-plan dining area, create an airy and relaxed feel. This also allows for awe-inspiring views of the city from anywhere in the room. With 88 covers and a standing capacity of up to 150, Orelle is also the perfect setting for an unforgettable event or party.
The bar, meanwhile, has a distinctly Parisian feel, with prints lining the walls and an art deco bar taking centre stage. Here, you can watch the sunset over a cocktail, either settled into the plush seats or perched at the counter. Elsewhere, you’ll find the 12-seater private dining room. Ideal for an intimate meal between friends, colleagues or family, the secluded space has its own view over the city. Those looking to impress their guests should plump for a sumptuous bespoke menu.
The hugely successful D&D London group is comprised of 45 restaurants, bars and even a hotel. While most of the group’s sites are in London, you’ll also find locations in Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Paris, New York and now, Birmingham. These restaurants have earned considerable acclaim, with Angler, in particular, earning and retaining a Michelin star. The group has made considerable strides when it comes to sustainability, aiming to reach net zero across the whole company by the end of 2025.
