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.
service was really slow. in an hour and a half we were only able to order 1 drink
Every visit so far has been amazing!!
An absolute gem! I love this place
We had a great time at The Plotting Parlour. Lovely cute cocktail bar with friendly and efficient service.
Delicious cocktails, wonderful atmosphere and great service
Our party of 8 had a fantastic time. We were accommodated on early arrival which gave us a little more than our 2hr slot. Cocktails amazing, service excellent, ambiance spot on. Thanks for a great night. Keep doing what you're doing!
Best cocktails in Brighton
Great atmosphere, friendly knowledgeable staff. Lovely gin glasses! Good recommendations. Thank you for a great early evening drinks.
Fantastic and unusual cocktails in a funky, chilled atmosphere. Fab table service, knowledgeable staff, a real treat. A great way to start an evening.
Excellent cocktails as always
Great team with good vibes x
Amazing. Perfect place, atmosphere, staff, drinks. The staff were so friendly and they really knew their work - the atmosphere was amazing and the bar was beautiful. Would come again.
my only complaint would be that the tables are so close together, there really isn't very much room. Those at the back are much better spaced. It also means that the noise level is such it can be a bit difficult to have a conversation. Cocktails and service excellent
Great decor, warm and cosy but stylish. The service was a mixed bag, the first waiter was clearly in a rush and just wanted us to order quickly so no real explanation of the cocktails. The other guy who was also covering the door was really helpful and changed one of the cocktails for us. Personally I wasn’t overwhelmed by the cocktails I tried but my friends really liked there’s. A mixed bag.
Great atmosphere and service
I visited on 2nd November for my 70th birthday drink with friends and family. The cocktails were the best I have had in years, and the atmosphere in the Plotting Parlour was perfect for the start of the evening. The staff were lovely, and very helpful with any queries we had about the drinks. We will be back!
Love this place, we have been back since first visit and our friends where just as impressed.
We love the Plotting Parlour. Its a great place to hide from the bustle of Brighton for a short time and enjoy the best cocktails in town. Staff are extremely helpful and will spend time with you explaining the cocktails in detail. Its also a great place to meet nice people, which we did too.
A fantastic bar, great drinks with spot on service
Great service and great cocktails! As always!
Cocktails were amazing, really lovely setting and staff super helpful and friendly - will come back again :)
We loved The Plotting Parlour! It has a cosy, welcoming atmosphere and the staff were friendly and efficient. The drinks were delicious - although on the expensive side they were some of the best cocktails I’ve had. My only criticism was the row of cinema seats which look great but are small and uncomfortable, and it felt awkward sitting in a straight row along the back wall.
As always, your cocktails are amazing.
