Bootlegger bar to open in Brighton in former The Globe pub building Brighton News

A NEW bar in the city center invites you to party like in 1933.

Bootlegger will open next week in Middle Street, Brighton, on the former site of The Globe pub.

The bar will take you back to the end of Prohibition in the United States where alcohol consumption was permitted again after a ban of more than a decade.

So here’s your chance to party like those 1930s party animals “without fear of incarceration or fines”, partying until 4am with fine cocktails, over 100 gins and 15 types of whiskey. .

“When the ban ended, imagine the parties they had – that’s who we are,” said co-owner Lee Miller.

“We’re a bar from the 1920s to 1960s; gin and jazz, bourbon and blues, and live music from The Charleston to Elvis Presley.”

Bootlegger has bars in Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter. His Brighton bar plans to open next Thursday.

Mr Miller said the three “speakeasy” sites were “number one on Trip Advisor” in their respective cities and now hopes for similar results in Brighton.

He said: “We are an independent family business, this is huge for us, we are all very close.

“We pride ourselves on a very excited and somewhat chaotic service.”

The bar will host comedy nights, blues concerts, brunch platters, seven different types of Espresso Martinis, seven types of Long Island iced teas, swing lessons, a “big old-fashioned menu” and much more. Moreover.

Mr Miller, who lived in Brighton before running bars in New York, said: “We are very, very happy to bring something really different to Brighton.

“I think, through the experience of living here, it’s a perfect fit because the city is very unique and exactly what our brand is.

“We want everything that is local. For example, local suppliers for local meats, fruit for cocktails and our plates.

“Everything we do will be for the little man, not the big one.”

Renovations and decorations are currently underway to prepare the bar for launch.

The building once housed the Globe and Cease And Desist pub.

The latter found his name after plans to turn it into Les Dennis Lounge were scuttled by Les Dennis himself.

“To say the building required a lot of work is an understatement,” said Orange Property Group, a Kemptown-based construction company.
