Drake's is a slick, modern privately run boutique hotel housed in a double fronted Georgian townhouse on the seafront. The hotel?s bar sits on the ground floor with its front bowed window looking out onto the seafront.

What is basically a knocked-through living room, the plainly decorated bright room is furnished with olive-grey leather tub chairs and low tables. Behind the slick black marble bar sits a respectable range of premium spirits.

This particular living room is so neat and tidy that it can feel a tad stark but it is comfortable and a great place for a quiet drink. This is a much underrated bar and over several visits I have enjoyed some of the best made cocktails in Brighton here.
