Alighting the train at Wolverhampton Station, you’ll undoubtedly fancy a nibble, so your first stop is the vibrant Lupo Lounge.

The Crown Wergs
Searching the Instagram hashtag ‘#wolverhamptonfood’ reveals The Crown Wergs as a top contender. This stylish pub is open until 11pm each night and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. The Crown Wergs boasts an ‘Aperitivo Hour’ until 8pm during the week, with a selection of delicious cocktails available for just £6.00. With an array of menus, including all things vegan, there’s something for everyone in your party.
Another great option for dining is Fiume, an Italian restaurant and bar owned by husband-and-wife duo, Stefano and Carla Scaringi. Opened in 2013, this ‘secret spot’ sees the pair create modern interpretations of classic dishes inspired by their home regions of Sardinia and Basilicata. With 4.5-stars on TripAdvisor and 746 amazing reviews, this Italian is a spot not to be missed and is open until midnight.
North Street Social
If you fancy yourself as the next Robbie Williams (or just like admiring the talent of others), then our research has uncovered the sound sensations of North Street Social, unsurprisingly, in North Street. Taking place every Friday from 7pm until midnight, you can enjoy open mic sessions at the ‘Jam Rock Fridays’ events, and performers even get a free drink. The venue is open until 2am for music and dancing if you really want to stay out late (but don’t forget to check those train times)!
Lighthouse Media Centre
If singing and dancing isn’t your thing, then why not visit the Lighthouse Media Centre, an independent arts venue in the city centre? Describing itself as a “cultural hidden gem”, the Lighthouse shows the latest films, streams ballets, music events, and even hosts art exhibitions. It also has an extremely lively Café/Bar, named Lock Works, where you can order food and drinks to enjoy before, after or during your show.
