About The Plotting Parlour

We have been open since October 2014 and in that time have established a loyal customer base, an excellent reputation among locals and tourists alike and great feedback overall. We have also won a number of awards and accolades including Brighton's "Best Cocktail Bar" in the Brighton and Hove Food Festival awards, reviews in a number of local and national news outlets as well as a nod in The Sunday Times Best Bars in Britain.
The bar is centrally located just off of the Old Steine, so there really is no excuse not to do yourself a favour and drop by for a drink or three surrounded by beautiful décor, amazing drinks and truly friendly people. We are table service only, so you can relax and we will come to you to fulfil your drinking requirements.

This was my third visit and this time I brought my husband and three daughters. They LOVED it just as much as I do. The cocktails are delicious, imaginative and brilliantly made. They come in glasses which seem to have been designed individually for each cocktail. The room is the perfect mix of warm, welcoming, decadent and illicit!!

Didn’t like my mocktail that I bought and the waitress kindly took it off the bill. Didn’t expect it at all but a lovely gesture.

They take table bookings but reserve tables for walk ins and it's table service only. This is perfect and it means that people are not standing around trying to get served. It's all very orderly and calm. Service is really slick and one nice touch is constantly replenished tap water for the table. Anyway on to the serious business. The house specific cocktails are very well thought out and unique (the reason for 4 stars on the value for money is that one or two are a touch pricey but overall not bad). They will also serve any other cocktails. We asked for a Clover Club and got it no problem. (Not every cocktail bar can do them if they're not on the menu). Great atmosphere and very good decor. What a gem and probably the best bar we've visited in Brighton.

Been a few times now and things have got worse over time. Service was very slow. 30mins until we got our first drink. Lots of others who were unhappy, therefore atmosphere wasnt good. Drinks menu didnt seem quite right, not sure if different since last time but probably should advertise the classics too. Price wise ok not cheap but no different than before. With other cocktail bars in brighton, struggling to think of a reason to come again. As the ambience, chillness and vibe to a small little bar with quick great speedy service and a large selection of old and new cocktails seems to be lacking now.

We had a fab time at the Plotting Parlour this weekend. The cocktails were lovely, the Chilli and Ginger Margarita in particular was fantastic! Beautifully presented and delicious to taste. The staff were really friendly and the decor was great!

On our last visit, we enjoyed being able to sit, drink and chat without the over-loud music we had experienced on an earlier visit. This place is a little gem, one to be treasured, but, as is the case with so many venues today, the tendency to turn up the volume, forcing patrons to shout at each other, is a significant negative.

Great place. Not as atmospheric as times I’ve been before. One of the staff seemed a little “flat”. An untypical night. Still the same great cocktails though.
