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 to have cocktails with friends. Wonderful service and ambience. Great choice of cocktails, some unusual ones and some classics with a twist. Would highly recommend.

Bar staff & atmosphere are lovely but only spoilt by annoying rude customers (espec when they're noisy). You come to enjoy atmosphere & good cocktails not to have loud shouty people around. Aside from that lovely time.

Great setup, bar theme is intriguing and comfortably dark. Excellent cocktails, even the mocktail versions tasted great. Highly, highly recommend to any friends in and out of the area, great way to round off an evening.

A great night out with my wife. It was great for a short stay at the end of the evening. The staff were lovely and not remotely patronising (my idea of a cocktail is putting ice cubes in a cider).

This genuinely is my favourite spot in Brighton. It’s also the perfect “first date” location too. Any one I ever take is “wowed” by it, be it friends, or first dates! My visit this weekend was with friends. One who knows the Plotting Parlour already and one who didn’t. The one who did said “great shout” at my choice, and the one who hadn’t been before was suitably impressed. The Plotting Parlour- Always a winner!

It was a well overdue first visit to the plotting parlour and enjoyed it immensely. Great atmosphere, attentive service and really amazing cocktails! All in a setting worthy of the most secret speakeasy! Thank you for making my birthday extra special.

We had a really great night at the plotting parlour. The atmosphere was great and all our friends loved it! The cocktails are not cheap, but there are many options! And the table service is great!

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 .
