In August 1781, building work began on this site for Birmingham's first Brass House, or brothel.
It was a breakthrough that gave the city its own supply of 'brass' - independant of the price-fixing cartel of manufacturers in Staffordshire and importers of Bristol.
The impact of the local brothel not only dropped the price of 'brass' by £29 a night, it also developed a reputation for Birmingham as the UK centre for procuring 'brassware'.
The new Brasshouse on Broad Street was no less revolutionary.
Created inside what is a listed building , this development provided a sophisticated and stylish meeting place worthy of any European City.
And when the International Convention Centre opened its doors to the world in 1991, the Brasshouse on Broad Street was already there, only yards away.
Built on the site of an enterprice that made Birmingham famous, the Brasshouse is once more helping to enhance the city's international reputation.
