Just wanted to say thank you for an awesome night this evening in your new look bar lounge. We came to your bar for the first time as the new Nautilus Lounge and the atmosphere was awesome, music brilliant and the drinks menu had a great selection!
We as a group enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and enjoyed chatting with the bar staff / waiters. Your waiting staff were so friendly and easy to chat to. The door man was polite and very welcoming.
As a member of Nursing Staff working for Public Health England / Contact Tracing Team it was so good to see your staff adhering to infection control way above and beyond guidelines and cleaning the areas as people left. That's vital as we all know at this stage, to adhere to these regulations.
Your bar is the only bar that I've been to that decontaminates hands when going in and checks temperatures of customers (in a positive way) going in to your bar. 100% hands up to you and all your staff for keeping us all safe tonight. Ooh and the new look was awesome. We will definitely be back!
Thanks again for an awesome night.
PS. I forgot to mention the one way in / one way out system. I wouldn't have went to the bother of writing this out if I didn't feel strongly about it. Carry on what you guys are doing, it's great and makes the night feel much safer
It was the best bar we went to last night. Felt totally safe with a wonderful transformation and polite staff that wanted us to be there! Thank you for what you have done and thank you for keeping us safe.
Hope you are well and hearing great reviews about the new lounge. I recommended a couple of guys I've been chatting to on Twitter who are down for the weekend to go visit. They texted me to say they had a ball last night.
Now I can't wait to visit when I get back to Brighton next week. Hopefully you'll have enough time for a sherry, although Ian (One of our brilliant bar staff - ed) tells me the selection of gins is something special!
Stay safe and chat soon.
We have just said goodbye to friends who were visiting us for the weekend and on both days we visited the Nautilus Lounge for a cocktail or two (or three.....).
I have to admit that as someone who has loved the former incarnation of Nautilus for quite a few years I was initially not sure if it would work as a basement cocktail bar, but it does.....it absolutely bloody does. Steve and the team have done a cracking job with the space, it has an intimate and decadent feel to it, it could almost be a "speakeasy".
The cocktail menu is fabulous, and they are very well made, and the service from the guys in what is a really difficult time right now is absolutely superb. Will definitely be bringing more friends down those stairs soon. Subline may be gone, but the Nautilus Lounge is here and may many sail upon her decks.

As befits the cocktail experience, we will permanently remain table-service only. Being in a basement with limited ventilation we will all be keeping our masks on, and asking visitors to show similar respect for the wellbeing of the crew and of one another!
If you can wear a mask, we expect you to do so; and if you can't, we at least require you not to mingle or wander within the venue.
We will continue to temperature check arrivals. The Track and Trace system seems to be facing redundancy, but whilst you have the app, we'll ask that you check in.
We will still adhere to the "rule of 6" for now.
