L’Atelier du Vin Brighton
Brighton has a fantastic food and drink scene, which is the reason why so many people come here to dine. There are places to wine and dine on almost every street, suitable for all tastes. It’s a challenge now how to surpass the other winery or restaurant next door, which is only a few meters away. Here we bring you the most exciting addition to the food and drinks scene, L’Atelier Du Vin.
In February of 2018, L’Atelier du Vin Brighton opened at Kensington Gardens as a prohibition-style speakeasy atop an attic. This space quickly became a local hub as well as gaining national recognition. L’Atelier du Vin relocated to St Georges Place in early 2019, expanding into a larger venue that would accommodate its sought after drinks menu and increasing fan base; Seven Dials followed shortly thereafter. They were awarded Best Cocktail at the Brighton Restaurant Award in 2020.
The theme It’s a studio wine-bar, place where one can discover great wines and rare vintages, drink great,classic cocktails from prohibition era and enjoy some simple but good quality food.
A mismatched interior surrounded by salvaged furniture has high ceilings, full-length windows and eclectic décor. In the day, the bar is bright and welcoming whilst at night the curtains are closed and low lighting aids in the feel-good factor of a secret speakeasy.
The L’Atelier Bar, built by L’Atelier Owners Steve and Dimitri, is the heart and soul of the business. With 2 pence pieces over a draw construction. Visitors at the bar can experience the art of bartending up close thanks to stools. A private wine tasting room is provided in the new L’Atelier, which can accommodate up to 15 people with a mezzanine place for small parties.
Extensive Drinks Menu
Brighton’s L’Atelier Du Vin bar has one of the most comprehensive drink menus, with over 700 wines, 200 champagnes, and 300 spirits. Wines start at £4 a glass, and there are hundreds of distinct vintages available in the hundreds. A sommelier, Stefano Angeloni, is on-hand to illuminate wine and make it accessible, with the venue emphasizing accessibility.
L’Atelier Du Vin offers exceptional wines by the glass with Coravin technology, wines previously available only in bottles and out of the budget of most folks.
They have a great wine list and spirits, but also a wide variety of cocktails inspired by the classics and arranged by a timeline from the cocktail’s creation. A particular favourite is the Gordon Gin of the 1950s. Fancy something a little different? If you want something more modern, just consult the bartenders and they will prepare whatever your taste buds request!
While the main focus of dining at L’Atelier is on drinks, they don’t stray far from serving mouthwatering steaks, sourced locally from Trenchmore Farm. Also available are a variety of charcuteries and cheeses to enjoy with your wines and cocktails, so if you prefer a lighter bite this is an excellent choice. The L’atelier du Vin adds a unique touch, winning many over, by engraving each regular’s steak knife with their name and keeping it in your possession until you use it – further emphasising their commitment to their regular customers.
Now open, L’Atelier du Vin Brighton invites you to visit and enjoy a nice glass of wine! Two for one is being offered on a selection of wines and cocktails on Sunday through Friday, 5 pm-7 pm, so make sure not to miss out!
