A salute to the permit rooms of Bombay, in Brighton’s Lanes.

Seriously good bar snacks, moreish curries, plates for sharing (and a handful of best Dishoom favourites). Breakfasts too.

And of course, crackingly good cocktails to wash it all down with.

Swinging by the morning after the night before? There’s a Bacon Naan Roll with your name on it.

We’re kicking back like Bombayites. In 1949, liquor was banned in the city and enterprising Aunties secretly served drinks from their front rooms, a boiled egg vendor stationed outside as a sign for those who knew. By the 1970s the law was loosened up, and permit holders (having obtained their liquor permits ‘for the preservation or maintenance of health’ no less) could buy alcohol. Permit Rooms were officially born.

No matter the hour or shuffling mood at this Permit Room - just come as you are.
