Lots of variety, cool decor and lovely atmosphere. Staff were attentive and we were never without a drink, Would definitely attend again, make sure you book not to be disappointed.

No substance. Looks nice and is cosy, dark and comfy but actually, the cocktails are overly sweet, gimmicky and the service was ok at best, (don’t sit at the bar!) Way behind the times, lots of cocktails not actual cocktails but ones that you drink...More

By far the best cocktail bar in Brighton - they've nailed everything. Atmosphere, tick. Drinks, tick. Staff and service, tick.

We came in both days on our recent trip to Brighton. It had just the right atmosphere. Relaxed and grown up. A wonderful cocktail list. I could have happily worked through the entire list but we had dinner reservations.

I love this place. Cozy, atmospheric room, friendly staff and great cocktails with some unusual choices. Only drawback is it's popularity so make sure you reserve a table in advance (easy online booking) if you want to go. Highly recommended.
