Description: The Brighton Ballroom has recently been taken over by Brighton-born Alex Proud, owner of the Proud Group, a conglomerate of six UK locations based in entertainment & the arts. The Brighton Ballroom has been many things and as a member of the Proud Group it will continue to live up to its legacy of a popular live music and retro venue during the summer. The venue features a swanky cocktail bar with a well-placed balcony, offering guests a bird’s eye view of all the club’s goings-on. Proud Group reopened the iconic venue with the promise of a gradual yet extensive restoration project. The transformation began with the launch of the Ballroom’s new restaurant offering a bespoke dining experience under the direction of Michelin-trained chef Finlay Logan. The launch has established the Ballroom as the retro supper club of the south at the same time bringing a touch of old-world glamour back to this historic venue.

“Unique and fun, room for improvement”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Myself and a group of 12 other ladies came here for a hen do. We got half price vouchers on Groupon which were great value. They included a 3 course meal which we had to pre order.
When shown to our table (which was very small and cramped together) we were one seat short which when finally sorted out made it even more squished. Some of our preordered food was wrong however we understood that mistakes happen!
The food did take ages to come and when it did it didnt arrive all at once and didnt taste all that great to be honest. We hadn't paid a great amount so wasnt expecting the ritz!
The show itself was fun and nothing like Id seen before. They had the host who sung and introduced the acts - very fun. There were 3 acts who did 2 performances each. They were all very good but though they could maybe have done a bit more? Im not sure what I was expecting but wasnt amazed.
The venue then turned into a nightclub, the staff were very quick to fold tables and take chairs away even though we were still seated and drinks were on the table unfinished (that got thrown away by the staff).
Overall it was fun and totally different and will give it another go in the future, I just think there's room for improvement. Maybe dont take so many bookings as it was extremely cramped.

One thing that bugged me the most - good god it was loud! Music was played ridiculously loudly throughout the meal and inbetween acts which made it hard to talk or even think. This was fine later in the evening but when dining surely it should be a little more relaxed.

Thanks for a fun night x

“Great fun!”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Had a good evening at the Cabaret! The food combinations are interesting - not too sure about the bream with mango. The host for the evening was very good, interacting with the audience but not over bearing. We liked the fan dance very much and the flashing and spinning hoops. Our waitress Steph was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend Proud Cabaret for an entertaining night out.

“My wedding reception was just perfect”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Myself and my new husband are extremely happy with everything that proud have done!! We had the most incredible wedding reception and we are still talking about it 3 weeks on! Food was perfect, staff were brilliant and Kate is just a dream to work with. I also went for my hen do. We had a three course dinner and burlesque and again it was just amazing. I'd recommend proud to everyone and I am already planning our first anniversary there.

We had a great time .Right from the beginning with our lovely waitress Naomi who look after us all evening. The food was really good much better than i expected, resturant quality. The show was great sexy and fun .. A really good evening out. The bar is a bit expensive and will stop me going more often but I will be going back again
