From a saloon-style bar to candle holders and a wall featuring the Shelby brothers - visitors will feel like they've stepped back in time at The Garrison in The Waterfront, near Merry Hill.

The BBC show has been a hit across the UK - in particular in the Black Country, as parts have been filmed in popular spots such as the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley.

Peaky Blinders is a crime drama set in Birmingham in the aftermath of the First World War, following the criminal activity of one family.

After seven weeks of work to transform the former office space, the bar now features dark wood furniture, a bar similar to the copper bars of the 1920s and ceilings painted as if they have been nicotine stained.

The bar is the first venture into the pub industry for owners Jason Montgomery and Spida Price, who are from Brierley Hill.

Jason, 51, said: "It was intended to be a micro pub which has ended up being a saloon bar.

"We really like Peaky Blinders, everybody does really. We thought the name The Garrison was great and we tried to create the image of a saloon bar.

"The actual pub in the film is really dark, so we've used wood for the furniture, like a cabin. We're happy with the end product at the moment.


"We've also got a large picture wall of the brothers so people can have a picture with them, it looks really effective, you can see it as you walk in.

"We've already taken quite a few orders for bookings and parties while we were still building it."

Among the drinks, the bar will serve real ales, gin and rum, and a number will be sourced locally.

The bar is set to open at midday tomorrow.
