Why we love it

There aren’t many bars in Brighton that offer table service as standard, but we have a feeling the guys behind The Plotting Parlour aren't really ones to stick to the norm. Winner of The Sunday Times’ Best British Bars, Brighton’s best kept secret boasts both a lively patio deck for summer drinks and a cosy log burner for the cooler months, guaranteeing year-round merriment.

As masters of mixology, the bar’s cocktails are nothing short of enchanting. Every visit is made all the more pleasant by manager Luke and his team, whose attentive service enriches the experience. The bar is open every night, but new visitors should head down on a Sunday, sit beneath Plotting Parlour’s beautifully muralled ceilings, and take advantage of their two cocktails for £10 offer (we love the little literary surprise on the Hemingway Daiquiri).
