Bohemia flung open its glamorous doors end of February 2012.

Beautifully arranged over three floors, Bohemia delivers’ a full breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea menu in the Grand Café whilst the Late Lounge offers a night out like no other in Brighton. Elite and sophisticated, but at the same time edgy, Bohemia by night is aimed firmly at the discerning 25 plus set.

Bohemia is the latest venture by husband and wife team entrepreneur couple, Paul & Verity Craig. Set in the historic Lanes, the venue underwent a complete refurbishment taking much of the building back to its former beauty and restoring many of its original features from windows to brickwork.  Elements of the West Pier have been discretely incorporated keeping ‘Brighton’ at the heart of its design. Verity & Paul designed this project from beginning to end, with a hands-on approach. And their plan? To create a “ground-breaking mission in the centre of Brighton – something truly unique and original, sure to set the imagination raging and pulse racing.”

During the day the Grand Café serves a full menu for breakfast, lunch and afternoon cream tea in a variety of settings including The Library on the balcony where guests can enjoy the leather arm chairs, read newspapers, use wifi and eat or drink, just as they can in the downstairs main bar where there is a stylish yet relaxed atmosphere with the centre island bar being the main focal point thus creating a socialble environment where guests and barmen interact with no wall or bar-back dividing them.

Here is also where on Thursday evenings The Jazz Lounge takes place; a free weekly event where guests can enjoy locally sourced, smooth live jazz acts.

During warmer months to the front of the venue, guests can enjoy sitting in the heart of the Lanes where tables and chairs sit on the cobbled streets (heaters and blankets are provided for cooler months). Once again, guests enjoy the creations of some of Brighton’s top chefs from Bohemia in this area of the venue.

Upstairs, the roof terrace has been turned into a beautiful glass walled Veuve Clicquot Champagne Roof Garden with astro turf flooring to give the impression of a society garden party.  Here guests can also take lunch or breakfast during warmer months (reservation only). By night, this glazed area is  backlit with a green hue to increase the illusion of being in a garden. This has to be seen to be believed.

Near to the Veuve Clicquot roof garden is the Champagne Late Lounge which features laid back booth-seating giving a real house party feel while listening to some funky bar grooves – on vinyl of course.  This unique space features ‘The Barman’s Table’ where a highly skilled barman invites guests to enjoy a private gin, vodka, rum or champagne ‘experience’ and sample a range of leading brands whilst learning more about their history.  This is a popular space to book for a private party or just as a VIP area, having a personal barman for the night.

Already said to serve the best cocktails in town, molecular mixology cocktails are also being served at Bohemia; artistic, beautiful with tastes that tantalise taste buds.

So, from superb breakfasts to magnificent lunches followed by a traditional Sussex Afternoon Cream Tea and then world class cocktails and live jazz every Thursday evening, Bohemia invites you to come early and stay late in the most stylish surroundings Brighton has ever seen.
