In Brighton

Permit Room Brighton

Nestled into Brighton’s bustling lanes, an all-day bar-café, a tribute to the way that Bombay cuts loose.

A neighbourhood crowd drops by. There’s an abundance of drinking food: Snacks, Chaats, Salads, Curries (and Dishoom faves). Local beers and DJs too. Finish up with an ice cream sandwich – a special Bombay-Brighton treat.

Wash it all down with our late-night cocktails – they pack a punch (voted ‘Best Cocktails’ at the BRAVO Awards). And for the morning after a night of revelry, a fresh Breakfast Naan will be waiting for you.

Bookings

Permit Room is mostly for walk-ins – but we do hold some tables for reservations. If you’re with a big party, it’s best to book in advance (you might be spread across some close-together tables). Any questions – chat with our team.

What's on

From DJ nights curated by our friends at Going South, to shindigs with local musicians, there’s an eclectic events mix at the Permit Room. We’re taking cues from the jam sessions at Slip-Disc and Rang Bhavan in '70s Bombay, as well as from everything Brighton’s got to offer.
