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.
Wonderful atmosphere, service and cocktails! We were celebrating a birthday and the Plotting Parlour was perfect. We’ll be back!
Lovely place, friendly staff with good table service - cocktails were nice but not exceptional and too expensive to consider more than one. Seating was uncomfortable which didn't promote staying longer than an hour anyway. Glad we tried but unlikely to repeat the experience aa there are equally good cocktails, at cheaper prices in more comfortable venues in Brighton.
Great cocktails, and enormous portions of nuts / Olives. The mixologists know their stuff, it's not a bar that happens to have a few on the menu. I'm tall, and the cinema seats at the back of the ground floor are a little uncomfortable after a while. Also, when busy, it can take a little longer than ideal to get a server's attention. That said, I've been many times before, and will go many times in the future. Love it.
Great as ever, one of the best places in town for Cocktails. Fab Cocktails great atmosphere and friendly staff. Dave
Fabulous as always- great atmosphere and not what you expect in a cocktail bar. Staff friendly and helpful and amazing cocktails!
The Plotting Parlour deserves its accolade of Brighton's best cocktail Bar. The bar is cosy and comfortable. The service is attentive and friendly and the cocktails were outstanding! We will certainly visit again!
Great bar, knowledgeable friendly staff. Fantastic cocktails.
Great place for a Friday night out. Some amazing drinks!
Fantastic drinks, atmosphere and staff. Great evening out 🍸
a great place to meet friends for cocktails and wine
Staff were lovely ive never had a bad experience.
Reason for lower stars a few of your special cocktails were sold out - if changing menu then should offer an additional options rather than nothing Plus also service charge added, should be optional, pet hate when added rather than we choose to do When paying for cocktails at a higher price then that should be it
Such a beautiful place and great cocktails.
Service charge was quite high but loved the cocktails and service was very good!
A really cosy , funky cocktail bar... Buzzy atmosphere but not too loud.. Everyone in my group loved it.
