Commonwealth Games revelers and athletes battled for spots in Birmingham’s hottest bars last night, as the city entertained thousands of visitors who gathered for the global sporting event.
The second city’s Broad Street nightclub strip was packed with Brum locals and sports competitors — with varying levels of glamour, photos showed.

Other revelers received a helping hand home from their friends, including a worse behaved pair of men at a bus stop.
