Inside Bohemia is like discovering a Narnia at the back of your nan's wardrobe (if Narnia were a little sassed up into contemporary times). But, even so, this bar tucked away very fittingly in The Lanes is adorned with creative decor as well as cocktails. Set in a traditional Edwardian building and boasting period features in abundance, you'll not be short of discoveries in this cool bar in Brighton.

A dark underworld of juicy, dripping burgers and meaty eats in excess, MeatLiquor is Brighton's undisputed beating carnivorous heart slashed with decor that can only be described as something reminiscent of Lucifer's den. Signs of 'SIN' embellish the walls, as do crazy graphics and odd murals all making this one place steeped in wow factor in Brighton.
