1000 Trades is an independent neighbourhood bar and kitchen in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham.

We champion all forms of craft over three floors of our nineteenth century building – built as a jewellery workshop and latterly playing host to a badge factory.

That starts with craft beer and natural wine, runs through a rotating kitchen with our resident chef, all to a soundtrack prepared in partnership with Birmingham’s music community. With the artwork of local artists showcased throughout the building. 1000 Trades has space available for community and private events. We are particularly keen to support activities consistent with our craft philosophy.
