Who Are We?

We are an award winning, independent warehouse venue located in Digbeth, Birmingham. What started as a restoration project of a single warehouse in 2012, has evolved into a complex of 5 internal spaces, rooftop terrace and adjacent outdoor area beneath the railway viaducts of the UK’s second city.

Voted “Best Club Venue” in 2019 Skiddle awards - We host world renowned artists, DJs and brands as part of a program of over 200 events per year. We hold key attention to detail on sound, lighting, production, customer flow, security, safety and beyond. It’s not just about one big DJ or manufactured brand hype, it’s about the total experience.

This is a collaborative effort and organic journey to make memories.

Loft

The best kept secret in the entire complex. The Loft has played host to some of the most memorable parties we have ever hosted. As the sun rises through the windows the room has a continental feel akin to the likes of Berlin's Robert Johnson.

Greenhouse

The magic in this room hits you the minute you step inside - a real life "Alice in Wonderland" space. The home of AFTA DARK - Birmingham's leading afterparty.

Arches

Our largest space across the complex, this outdoor area sat beneath 50ft railway arches has been the setting for some of the cities most iconic  parties in recent years. Treated as a blank canvas, the production design varies across each event with huge sound systems installed. As the sun goes down on a summer evening, there is an energy out here like nowhere else.

Terrace

Originally the outdoor smoking and chill out area, the "Terrace" was re-developed initially in 2015, opening it up into 1 large area. More recently it was redesigned and insulated making it the largest indoor space at the venue, acoustically treated to ensure the highest quality sound and dance-floor experience. 6 Point, funktion One EVO6 sound system is paired with an ever changing production setup, tailored to the artists playing.

Warehouse

Referred to as the "Main Room", this was the original club space when LAB11 first opened. A complete re-design in 2020 saw the installation of the 360-degree DJ booth allowing the crowd to stand and dance all the way around the artists. Plus the first ever 3mm pitch LED screen - mounted to the ceiling above both the booth and main dance floor. Our inspiration for this room was collected across a number of European dance-floors...it produces an experience unlike anywhere else in the UK.
