Brighton's Secret Cocktail Bar


Hidden in the basement of Brighton's coolest hotel I recently discovered another Brighton secret – a cocktail bar I didn't know was there. The speakeasy concept might be a little
overdone in other cities, but in Brighton there aren't many options, so for our latest date night, Dan and I had to check it out... 

You'll find The Curious Mr Hanbury cocktail bar in the Artist Residence Hotel in Regency Square. Once inside, walk through the snug bar, down the stairs and you'll see a bookshelf. Give it a gentle push, and....



... you'll find yourself inside a dark and cosy cocktail bar! 





There's space for 14 people, but we had the place all to ourselves. There's no menu, instead you describe your favourite flavours to the barman, and what you're in the mood for and like a mindreader, she mixes up your favourite drink. 



It's amazing! I had a twist on the Cosmopolitan with blackberry syrup instead of cranberry and highly recommend the Coca Cola old fashioned. Yum. It's a great place to go before dinner at this amazing restaurant

  1. What a fantastic date! We tried two beautiful art deco bars, the Loos American Bar and the Bristol bar here in Vienna but they were both so smoky we couldn't leave fast enough:( You can still smoke inside here, and it seems the smaller the space the better the smoking experience. Yuck!

    1. The bars you mention sound stunning - shame about the smoke. I can't imagine people smoking inside now anymore! I had no idea you could still do it over there... You'll need to come here for date night! :-)

  2. That Rum Old Fashioned with reduced Coca Cola was delicious.
