We went here on one of our nights in Brighton. Ended up staying in here for a while, playing pool (the pool table is free) also the drinks are so cheap. Music is good. Staff are friendly. We will always return here. Always.

Great bar for cocktails. Had a lovely mojito here even though wasn't on the 2 for 1 cocktail menu that's the bar has on offer. Nice atmosphere and mix of people. A little grubby in places.

Hello. Yes we do. Through our back door. But unfortunately being such an old building our toilets are down stairs (aprox 15 steps).
