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.
Great cocktails, atmosphere, service and value. The Roobarb and Custard was delicious, nostalgic and deceptively strong. I didn't realise that was what I was looking for in a cocktail until I had it, and now I'm telling anyone who'll listen that they have to try it. Thank you, Plotting Parlour!
Outstanding! Friendly staff and fabulous cocktails. Pricey, but worth it!
A very lovely time was had by us!
Our group had a super time thank you for pre-dinner birthday drinks Great service from booking because I needed a larger table through to the night itself (and we were a large table of 9!), fab atmosphere - cool and trendy but not pretentious! The cocktails were absolutely spot on - really tasty, fun, different and full of alcohol! Just what we wanted to start off our night. Have loved it here when I’ve been before and again this visit did not disappoint! Would not hesitate to recommend and will be back again for sure! 😄
Wonderful cocktails and great service
Thankyou for a lovely evening. The drinks were incredible and interesting, the atmosphere friendly and relaxed and we’ll definately be back.
Lovely cocktails. Great team. Lots of fun
Reservations were required but the place was not busy - the web-site was a bit too strict - chill out.
Really loved the slight air of mystery and we tried all the cocktails which were delicious. Will definitely come back the next time I get to Brighton
We go to the Plotting Parlour for anniversaries and birthdays because it's so special there. Love the lighting, the intimacy and the truly superb and innovative cocktails.
Just the loveliest bar - great staff, lovely chilled vibe, fab drinks. Couldn't ask for more :)
Thank you thank you thank you!! Amazing service, made my partner's birthday so special. Delicious cocktails!!! (Literally can't fault anything, new favourite bar)
Fab cosy cocktail bar
More vegan options on milkier cocktails would be amazing. Plotting parlour is my favourite bar in Brighton and the staff are always fab.
Great atmosphere and service. Really special
The staff were very helpful, even holding our table when we were running late. Unfortunately it was very hot the evening we visited so air conditioning would have been nice. The cocktails however were amazing! Definitely visit again.
Lovely way to start your evening, such a lovely venue. The best cocktails.
Lovely went for friends birthday we arrived early and wasn't a problem. Lovely atmosphere and cocktails ! Would definitely recommend and go back :)
Best cocktails in Brighton.
A great place to start the night! Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere & great drinks!
Really great atmosphere, friendly service and amazing drinks!
Can't fault a single thing! Fantastic service right from the time of booking until the last person left the venue.
We had a great time but we are so old (50’s), we could read the wine list 😂 because it was too dark!
Beautiful cocktails - lovely atmospheric place - friendly and helpful staff
