Bohemia Brighton Review

Located in the Lanes of Brighton, Bohemia is a great place to kick off an evening, it perfectly bridges the gap between a pub and an upscale cocktail venue. Inside, the surroundings are relaxed, yet there is a good upbeat atmosphere to the lounge and a vintage bohemian feel as the name would suggest. The bar has many cosy corners to discover and some unique furnishings, such as a vintage gaming machine that doubles as a table. There is also a roof terrace and you can also enjoy live music on certain nights of the week.

I started by ordering the ‘Espresso Martini’, a cocktail mixed with Absolut Vanilia, Tia Maria, Baileys, espresso, and cardamom steam. The Irish cream and espresso flavours were delicious together and delivered a nice kick. My partner started off ordering the ‘Seagull Sip’, a most refreshing drink with El Jimador Tequila, Falernum, apricot brandy, lime, menthol, mango, and pineapple. A lovely blend of alcohol and fruity flavours.

Next, I ordered an ‘Aviation’, which was mixed with Portobello Road Gin, lemon, Maraschino, and violette foam. I enjoyed the soft violette foam, it gave the drink a unique signature and with a strong gin body it’s one I’d happily order again. My partner ordered a ‘Rosemary Sidecar’, this cocktail was built up on a base of Sauvignon Blanc and smoked rosemary, with Hennessy Fine, lemon, and Cointreau. Rosemary brings a pine-like taste to the drink, and with the citrus notes of lemon and cointreau it was very satisfying.

“Each cocktail is crafted and presented with an impressive amount of care and attention.”

For my last cocktail I ordered the ‘Sloe Bramble’, this cocktail was mixed with Sole Gin, fresh thyme, blackberry shrub, lemon, and port. If you like gin you will love this cocktail, the other flavours compliment the gin perfectly and add a fruity body. My partner opted for a glass of Veuve Clicquot, a distinctive and elegant champagne which never disappoints.

We also enjoyed a plate of marinated large queen olives which were soaked with sundried tomatoes, garlic, chilli, and oregano. These were bursting with flavour and were very rewarding.

Each cocktail at Bohemia is crafted and presented with an impressive amount of care and attention. They offer some unique and interesting cocktails and we will have to return to sample more from their menu in the future.
