Qype: Madame Geisha in Brighton

BrightonEating & DrinkingPubs & BarsBars

I can’t believe that more people haven’t reviewed this place, it’s got to be one of the most genuinely original and artistic spaces in all of Brighton. On walking in the door, the first thing to strike you is the rough-hewn wooden frame separating a section of the seating area which is adorned with the most beautiful, original artworks from Geisha Arts, the art gallery above the bar area.

The predominant red and black theme is incredibly striking and cohesive amidst the haphazard mis-match of sofas, tables and chairs. If you look behind the bar, which is overhung by enormous multicoloured, neon-lit crosses, you’ll see the most enormous selection of spirits I’ve ever seen in my life. I felt distinctly boring just opting for a Bacardi and Coke. Drinks prices are pretty high-end – about £6-7 for a double spirit & mixer – but when I have a drink in a place like this, I’m happy to think I’m at least in part paying for the privilege of the venue in the price.

Madame Geisha host club nights in the evening but have recently, since Geisha Arts opened up above, started opening in the day time for tea and coffee with spaces available to book for meetings. It’s clear to see that this would be an incredible space for creatives – now I just need some meetings to hold…
