Late find on a Saturday evening but we managed to secure tickets for the Whitney Houston tribute act that night. The singer was brilliant, the atmosphere was fantastic and the host, bar staff, manager and security fellas were lush! Highlights of the night included one of the security fellas busting his moves on the dance floor whilst remaining very professional. There is no edge to people in this bar and staff cleaned up straight away when accidents (like a glass being dropped or a drink being spilled) happened. Noticeably they are not risk averse but in a good way, and allowed a hen party to just have fun in a professionally managed manner. I would definitely go back as it’s been a while since I stayed out to the early hours of the morning and had fun! Thanks for a cracking night!

I went to this event with family for my Mums birthday it was the first time she had been out. Maggie Maes were so welcoming and friendly from the minute we arrived. The atmosphere and vibe was 100 per cent what we all needed. The Bar staff were on point making sure there was a constant flow of drinks and were very chatty, they went out of their way to ensure my Mum had a fab time , even giving her a heart balloon. We all had an amazing time and since then have booked other events here and can't wait to go back for more fun!

one of brighton's best kept secrets , if you love 80's 90's or motown /soul .this small venue is the place to be. generally over 25's ,friendly helpful staff .amazing live acts only the best cover bands and live tribute acts . top notch dj's friendly door staff . however if your looking for a nightclub full of teenagers and upto date music this place is probably not be for you . .
lots of hen parties and birthday parties especially during the summer ,would recommend phoning before turning up .or check for live events on their facebook page .

Visited with some friends for my birthday. I reserved our table almost a month in advance. When we arrived (exactly on time) the man greeting customers was very rude and accused of being an hour late. I assured him we weren’t and he was rude and unwelcoming. I showed him my confirmation of time and reservation and he managed to find us a seat, but he was clearly disgruntled.
We asked for a drinks menu, but they don’t provide one. So we had no idea what we were paying for drinks.
There was live music which created a great atmosphere, shame the man couldn’t sing very well. Great on guitar though!
Only ONE member of staff was wearing a mask. The rest had them around their chin, and one girl took our order without wearing one at all. As an establishment they should be leading by example, but clearly they don’t care. I was advised to go to trading standards but thought I would report my feedback to the venue itself. There was no consideration or apology, just ‘thanks for the feedback’. Terrible attitude and we won’t be recommending it in the future.
Also, said rude member of staff was walking around drinking at tables with customers. People doing Eric’s on the toilets.

Visited Saturday 29th May. Male staff member has zero customer service skills, we had pre booked and the first thing he said to us was “you’re late” - we weren’t. There are no drink menus which is very strange and to attract someone’s attention for a drink you need to hold up a sign - in the dark. Had the worst singer I have ever heard - he was at least a good entertainer. Only one of the staff members was wearing their mask correctly over their nose and mouth, most were wearing it under their chin permanently.

I messaged the bar with some feedback on their quiz but didn't get a response. £2 per person to enter won by a group of young girls who were using their phones throughout. If it's just for fun don't charge for the quiz. The walked off with a pot of over £60.

My wife and I were in Brighton early August for her birthday. We visited here for 3 nights during our stay and felt very welcomed by staff and a few locals that were in. Despite it being quiet, we had a great time with brilliant service. Thank you. We’ll certainly visit again when back in Brighton!

It’s hard to find somewhere to suit the over 30 crowd but this place is so much fun. Been here a few times for normal nights out and their special events and we love it! There is such a lovely vibe here and everyone is so friendly. Bar staff are cheery, good fun and great offer. Great djs and a safe space to meet.

how this place gets good reviews its puzzling....must be the type of crowd.
Rude staff, amateur 'cocktail's and no atmosphere.
We visited in the early evening and were so happy we moved away to the much nicer venues by the sea front.

After finding this gem, it has quickly become one of our favourite places. We found this bar during the days after lockdown 1.0 and have visited several times since. Only downside is it is in Brighton and we’re based in London😂. Incredibly friendly staff - we were known as ‘the teachers’. Honestly, not a single fault I could mention- can’t wait for our next trip to Brighton to see you again soon!! We stayed at the Hilton hotel which is only a short walk away so ideal!
