Restaurateur Richard Caring, owner of Caprice restaurant group Scotts, Balthazar, 34 Mayfair, Sexy fish and others, brought the Ivy Collection down to Brighton. Looking to create a venue that filled a long-standing gap in food offerings in the town. Our challenge, to take a disused post office and turn it into the foremost destination in Brighton.


Our brief was eclectic, demanding and fun. Create a sumptuous palace of a space that took the diner’s breath away. Fill every wall with a riot of colour and opulence and make the ladies powder room the most desirable in the UK, somewhere they just wouldn’t want to leave.


Bold, over the top, maximalist, a sensory over-load. Somewhere that will be remembered and talked about for years to come.


Recently ranked in the top five most Instagram-able restaurants in the UK, most likely for the fabulous ladies powder room, The Ivy Brighton has been a roaring success. But don’t take our word for it, here’s some of the press:

“Good God, and you thought I got worked up about the interior design of restaurants (and one dear friend even told me to cool my sexy tile obsession in reviews). But the social feeds have been pumping out screaming admiration for the arrival of Brighton's The Ivy branch.

And if there was ever a toilet to be celebrated, then this is it. I can't vouch for the gents, but the ladies powder room, containing eight camera happy lifestyle bloggers at any given time, is something else.

There is nothing like it in Brighton, nothing.”
