Enjoyable evening of cocktails and dancing

Our group of 14 had a great night at Bohemia last Friday. We arrived at 10pm, impressed by the stylish appearance of the bar, and were shown straight to the table we had reserved. The bar area was busy so it took a while to be served with drinks but the staff were friendly and helpful, and the... read more

I contacted Bohemia about a table booking for a special occasion for 13 friends. My email enquiry was answered very promptly and Jessica who handled my booking was extremely helpful and efficient. We had a brilliant evening, the cocktails were amazing and waiting on the table when we arrived and we loved the music. A great venue with a good... More

My fiancé and I come here for cocktails every time we have a day out in Brighton. We have never eaten there but have sat at the bar and sampled the cocktails on about 5 occasions. Have always been in the afternoon as opposed to evening, but the atmosphere is always great! We deliberately sit at the bar as we... More

Called in to Bohemia on Tuesday morning and had an amazing breakfast. Wonderful atmosphere, relaxing music and excellent food. Our charming waitress, Sylvia, noticed our interest in the building and took us on a guided tour of the venue after we had eaten. What a find this place is. So many rooms, some hidden away, and some very creative decor.... More

Myself & 13 friends went to Bohemia on Saturday afternoon as part of 40th birthday celebrations. We started with a couple of drinks in the main bar & then proceeded to the Library (because the roof terrace was too cold) for afternoon tea. Overall it was very nice. A couple of small grips, The offer of plain scones as well... More

In my Bohemia is quite an unassuming venue from outside but this is deceptive as it is very stylishly decorated inside with the big central bar of spirits hanging from the ceiling, library wallpaper and toilets done out like a fifties starlet's dressing room. The cassette tape walls on the staircases are pretty funky also.. I have visited Bohemia twice,... More

I'm a regular visitor to Brighton and until Saturday, never even knew this placed existed. Tucked away as it is, what a great find. My friend had booked Afternoon Tea here for 14 of us (mixed group aged 40+) and whilst I appreciate we may have been a bit loud, did not feel justified by the waiter telling us to... More

Having experienced lots of different Sunday roasts at many venues across the city this is definitely up there as one of the worst! Very small portion and my beef was a cheap cut, very tough and horrible, certainly not worth £12.95. My friend had the roast chicken which was so small he finished his meal in a couple of minutes....

Dear Markmedown I am sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your roast dinner. Firstly please let me assure you that we do use the finest quality produce in all our meals and I can confirm that the cut of beef you received definitely wasn't a 'cheap cut'. Our roasts are very popular and exceptionally good value for money and... More

We pre-booked a table for a friends birthday paid (£300) arrived at 10.30 to be told our table had been sold and we weren't allowed in!! Such rude power trip bouncers it's unbelievable!!

Dear BGirlBrighton Thank you for your post. Please let me assure you that I am taking this matter very seriously as this is totally unacceptable and not the culture that I have installed at Bohemia in my time as General Manager. Could you please contact me on Christian@BohemiaBrighton.co.uk so we can discuss further. Thank you. More
