The Victoria Bar

The Victoria Bar is located within the lounge area of The Grand Hotel and is one of our favourite Brighton bars for guaranteed quality drinks. Perch at the bar and chat with the interactive staff members while sipping on a classic cocktail of choice from the menu, that also features innovative cocktail creations, wine, beer, a top-end selection of spirits and delicious fizz. Drinks from the bar can also be served to the Victoria Lounge, perfect for that early evening much needed pick me up after an exhausting day at work.


At the front of the hotel, the sea-facing Victoria Terrace sums up The Grand Hotel’s association with luxury. The bright and botanical interior makes for the perfect location for brunch and afternoon tea.
