Geocache Description:

An urban micro (magnetic key holder) located on one of Birmingham's most famous streets. Some stealth is required as this area can be busy with passing muggles at times.

John Bright Street takes its name from a 19th century Birmingham MP. The street is most famous for being Birmingham's main party district in the 1980s. Before Broad Street, it was John Bright Street that was the place to be in Birmingham. Local nightclub owner Edward Fewtrell opened a series of bars, restaurants and nightclubs in the area to great success. Thousands of people flocked to Rebecca's Nightclub, Abigail's Dining and Cabaret Nightclub, Paramount Bar, and Edward's Number 7 and 8. In the early nineties, the venues on John Bright Street were suffering from increased competition from new venues, including those on Broad Street. Now nothing remains of Fewtrell's John Bright Street empire and it's hard to imagine that this street was once a popular destination.
 
The cache is located by what used to be Birmingham and Midlands Hospital for Skin and Urinary Diseases, and in a later life The Hospital bar. When retrieving the cache, you will able to see the hospital entrance for women and children. The men's entrance is located on the other side of the building on Beak Street - presumably the separate entrances were due to the rather sensitive nature of some of the medical complaints that were treated here.

The nearby Victoria pub - at the end of John Bright Street - is a wonderful stop whilst on a caching trip to Birmingham. The food is decent and more importantly the selection of beers is excellent.
