We all love the theatre of a cocktail, the decadence and sophistication, who’s got the mix just right and leaves you feeling stirred, not shaken?

From the timeless classic style of the dry martini to the unabashed cabaret of a flaming tiki served in a shrunken head, there’s a cocktail for all and you we’re all for a cocktail.

BRAVO to your plenty of good bars in Brighton.

The Plotting Parlour

Looks like someone’s been sharing Brighton’s ‘best kept secret’. Innovative and atmospheric these guys are so accommodating that when their fantastic cocktails made them too popular for their bar they opened up a second floor.
