Bohemia is based in a handsome 19th Century building in Brighton. It's had many of its original features restored. A popular spot worth a visit!

Located in the heart of the Lanes, Bohemia is housed in handsome 19th-century building. Many of the original features have been restored, and the interior is furnished with items salvaged from the city’s famous West Pier. The venue is split into several different areas, from the popular Grand Café space downstairs, open all day, to the first floor Late Lounge, which as the name suggests opens until late on Fridays and Saturdays, with fizz aplenty and regular DJ sets. It’s an opulent space, with black faux crocodile skin booths and lots of bling and glitz. There’s even a Roof Garden and a second terrace facing onto the bustle of the Lanes. Cocktails include the Lavender Cobbler, a fragrant mix of Beefeater Gin, pear liqueur, St. Germain Liqueur, lemon juice, cucumber and Sauvignon Blanc. The refreshing Brighton Fizz mixes blood orange liqueur, Aperol, pink grapefruit juice, with a good splash of Prosecco. Those with sweet teeth might want to try the White Delight, a creamy concoction of coconut rum, Chambord and Frangelico, shaken with cream and dusted with cinnamon. The more adventurous might want to check out their molecular drinks, which include the Bohemia Chocolate Martini (another sweet one), which mixes Absolut vanilla vodka, Mozart dark chocolate liquors, bitter cherry liquor and chocolate bitters with a white chocolate foam. Their range of sharing cocktails includes the Brighton Belle, a potent blend of Beefeater gin, Havana Club 7 years rum, guava juice, Crßme de Fraise and Crßme de mure, served in a vintage travel case and designed for up to six people to share. The bartenders dapper and the place always buzzing and lively, especially on weekends.
