Venue Info:

The Bootlegger, 78 Middle St
Brighton and Hove
United Kingdom


Independent Cocktail Bar & Live Music Venue

On Middle Street, just yards from the iconic Brighton shore front, you will find The Bootlegger, the latest speakeasy-inspired bar. Harking back to the underground glamour of the 1920s, this hideaway is the place for a raucous good night. Serving cocktails and other delicious tipples they welcome one and all.

The Bootlegger will also be serving authentic Italian platters inspired by the Prohibition Era Mobsters’ style, substance, and taste. They’ve been working hard with the finest suppliers to bring you a taste of Sicily and their range of mouth-watering treats means there’s something new and exciting for everyone to try.

The venue’s striking decor is an industrial mix of exposed bricks, Edison light bulbs, and cosy corners, that create a truly unique experience. Perfect for late-night tipples that evoke an enticing ‘out-of-bounds’ vibe.

The cocktail menu has been specially designed to complement the character of the bar. Their servers are well versed in the art of fabulous cocktails and can serve you any of their 90 concoctions, varying from century-old favorites, like negronis and sidecars, to up-to-the-minute mixology stars.

Of course, if cocktails aren’t your thing, they also have a delicious range of craft beers, ales, and ciders for you.

This can all be enjoyed while they host live performances by local musicians to swing D.J’s once restrictions have been lifted.

They’ll have you dancing well into the early hours with plenty of bop, swing and groove. All for Brighton’s in-the-know crowd, a city where music is everywhere – day and night.

With venues in other key cities already, they’re excited to become a part of Brightons’s bar, cocktail, and music scene, and welcome you all to come and feel at home in their newest bar.
