    Default Birmingham duplicate

    The Burlington Bar @ Macdonald Burlington Hotel is in fact the same place originally listed as the Midland Hotel, despite a slight variation in the street address.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    The Midland Hotel is marked closed. It appears to be two buildings with the Burlington Arcade between them, possibly the Midland Hotel was only in one part and the postcode being out of date didn't help. Snow White will merge the two at some stage I'm sure.

    This place has a very complicated history, with the old Midland Hotel descending into a den of iniquity, and both the Burlington Hotel and the separate Bacchus Bar rising (phoenix-like) from the ashes. I think the two separate entries are best kept.
