Tucked away among the cobbled streets of Brighton’s South Lanes, Bohemia is unmissable. Smart and trendy, it offers a unique ambience with its artistic interior and candlelit tables. Patrons can enjoy the heated front patio, the log mezzanine or the Veuve Clicquot roof terrace. Spread across three floors, Bohemia also boasts several sophisticated lounges, including the glitzy Late Lounge upstairs, which is open every weekend. The incredible range of food and drink on offer includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea, and Champagne and cocktail evenings. The menu also boasts several delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes, with every dish prepared from scratch by the talented chefs. Bohemia also provides late-night entertainment, with popular live music on Thursdays and DJ sets at the weekend.
We settled on the mezzanine, and a sumptuous feast of Bohemia’s famous fish and chips was laid before me. My guest enjoyed a generous salad of seared halloumi, mango slices and cashew nuts, over a bed of rocket. This was followed by superb homemade rhubarb crumble with custard. There was even more to come in the form of after-dinner cocktails. Prepared at the Barman’s Table by a mixologist, they were delivered with impressive artistic embellishments and tasted divine. The Rock and Rhubarb and the Espresso Martini were both out of this world and warrant a visit in their own right. It’s easy to see why Bohemia’s cocktail masterclasses are a popular option for private parties. I will certainly be going back to sample more from the menu. On Thursday evenings meals are two for the price of one if you book in advance and mention this offer when booking.
