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.

Fabulous place hidden away. Great atmosphere, music and cocktails. Would’ve been nice if it was made clearer which of the cocktails are short/long.

It was quieter than expected based on reviews however I was there early. Drinks were amazing & great to have cocktails that weren’t your usual; all were delicious that we tried. Only slight negative was when my client who I was with asked for a second drink “like this one but a variation of” she got scoffed at with “well that’s a completely different drink!” - next time just play along, surely?!

The main feedback would be that your website suggests it’s only possible to book a table for a maximum of 8 people so we booked for 8 and then limited the number of people we invited but when we arrived there was another group on the big table with at least 10-12 people? It would help if you made it clear that we could book for that number as I’ve been several times now and each time have been concerned that I can only have 8 people .

Our first visit was unplanned and a lovely surprise, atmospheric and delicious. The 2 of us were in the cinema side, quirky decoration details and lots if fun. Our second trip was planned and we booked a table for 10, we sat on the window table. Excellent service both times with imaginative cocktails and friendly, efficient staff. Definitely a place we'll return to and will recommend to anyone looking for a memorable night out.

Had a great time, friendly staff, interesting cocktails and efficient table service. Loved the Tumi, nicely presented and a unique cocktail with chocolate melting with every sip. Will be back soon for more!
