Another over priced bar in the gay village and full of profession drinkers. Had no charm or character and little seating. Staff as usual can’t see people over 25 and service is slow! Does get busy but after an hour or so you would have...More

This place welcomes all genders and it’s gr3at fun as long as you’re broad minded. We had a drag queen (Dave Lynn) who sang, made jokes and kept us laughing until the very end. Good, reasonable price drinks and friendly visitors. I would go again

My friends and I visit last night and received a warm welcome. Both staff and clientele were friendly and humorous. Martha d'arthur was the act for the evening and was absolutely brilliant. I look forward to returning again soon.

Your standard over priced Gay Bar in the heart of Kemptown Brighton. Staff attentive however unlike several similar venue who often look down their noses at customers. Overpriced but that's the pink pound for you. Seems to have a plethora of professional drinkers who seeds...More

Hello, our most expensive Lager is Peroni. It is a premium lager and most venues in Brighton charge over £5. You could have had a pint of Kronenberg fior £4.30 a pint or Fosters £3.90 a pint. I am sorry you did not enjoy your...More

This is a small bar that does cocktails, we got 2 for £10 because of the deal at that time, and went back for more. All brought to the table for you. Great atmosphere, obviously a popular place for locals and visitors alike.
