“Dear Latest Musicbar,
We just wanted to thank you all for all that you did to make our wedding reception and party such a success. We had a superb time and we believe our guests did too!
Many people commented on how great the venue was, how delicious the food was, and how delightful your staff were. We heartily agree and thank you all so much! All of the team were very friendly, helpful and so positive during the planning, and James the bar manager and his team were fantastic on the day. The place looked lovely (including the flowers in the ladies’ loo!) and I was so impressed that James hardly batted an eyelid when I asked about the pizza for the two 11 year olds and went and sorted it out there and then!
Having such friendly staff who also know what they are doing and have a can-do attitude made such a difference to ours and our guests’ experience of our very special day, so again a big, big thank you!
Kindest regards,
Sarah-Jane and Mike”

“Dear Latest Musicbar,
We just wanted to say thanks to you and your brilliant staff for all your help in making our wedding reception a wonderful and unforgettable night. The venue was perfect for our party, and our friends are still talking about what a great time they had!
Many thanks once again,
Claire and Tony X”

“Dear Latest Musicbar,
My wife and I had such an amazing reception at the Latest Musicbar, the help we had organising the event, the food cooked in-house, the staff (with great character) and most noticeably the value of the entire day and night. We, and all our friends who attended, had such an amazing night that the reception will go down as one of the parties of our lives. Finding the Latest Musicbar was a godsend, all our guests and ourselves will be remembering the venue and recommending it to anyone who needs a location for a great party in Brighton.
Once again, thank you 
Sam & Louise”
