L ‘Atelier du Vin is a vision of loveliness, a true escape from Brighton into another type of world that is hard to come by.
The bar is intimate, luxurious and oozing with personality. You enter the main bar which is small, but fresh and set out in a bistro style.
If you’re looking for a more intimate space then move up to the mezzanine which is set out in a lounge format with comfy mismatch chairs and tables.
The cocktail offering is clean and well thought out, but it’s the ingredients used in the drinks that are really special.
Owner Steve Pineau goes out of his way to source ingredients that are out of the ordinary.
Ultimately, this means the bar’s menu is pricey, but we say it’s worth it because one or two drinks made with carefully curated ingredients easily outweigh a handful made using mediocre spirits.
Of the win, Pineau said: “I’m very please to have won. We opened our first site 11 months ago and our second site in July, so it’s very good for us and hopefully next year we can be among the top 50.
“We’re going to push more with our cocktails and open our third place in November.”
