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 fulfill your drinking requirements.
We had a lovely time at the Plotting Parlour celebrating my partner's birthday. We were served by Rachel, who was great and gave us some really helpful advice on which cocktails to choose. The drinks ended up being my favourite ones of our whole trip! Thank you :)
I would say that having an air con unit venting it’s hot air within the room (ie no tubing venting outside via a window) defeats the purpose of the unit as it will never get the air cool & essentially becomes a very expensive fan. Furthermore leaving doors open also prevents the unit from cooling a room.
An amazing place , with some of the best cocktails we have ever had . Service was great and an interesting building to be in would recommend and would deffently return for another visit
Glad we found and stuck to this bar Great location, very nice staff, fun and interesting

Really welcoming service - a great atmosphere and all our party commented on how much they enjoyed the venue and service. Bar staff were only too happy to make drinks that weren’t on the menu, including a couple of non-alcoholic creations. I’ll be back and recommend highly
So worth a visit! What a wonderful experience. Great cocktails, decor, ambience and staff. Thanks so much.
