After a proper rock n roll crimbo and a Pelirocco style New Years Knees Up, we were almost hoping for a quiet January here at Pelirocco HQ. Of course, that didn’t quite happen…

After a proper rock n roll crimbo and a Pelirocco style New Years Knees Up, we were almost hoping for a quiet January here at Pelirocco HQ. Of course, that didn’t quite happen…

Our very own DJ Melirocco saw in the New Year with us, blasting disco through the decks with cocktails and glitter filling the hotel bar. For anyone wanting a healthy start to the year, we bought back one of our classic cocktails for January’s cocktail of the month – The Delboy. We’re certain all the fruit in it overrides the spiced rum and peach schnapps…
2015 is a very important year at The Peli, as it’s our 15th birthday! All year we will be celebrating this with different events – this month we celebrated 15 years of the Betty’s Boudoir room at the hotel, by having a Betty Page lookalike contest. We had lots of colourful characters equipped with fringes, latex and whips, strutting their stuff for the judges in the bar, aided by some cheeky Pornstar Martini’s!

We hosted parties every week, as well as a few other special nights: The Synthesize Me DJs were back in business with their bleeps, bongs and psychedelic projections, and we welcomed new DJ act The Instant Sisters to the bar who had everyone dancing, especially the bar staff. Our monthly comedy night Funny Fursdays returned to the bar, with the fantastic Charmaine Davies and Matt Whistler making everyone laugh and with plenty of Casco Viejo Tequila fuelling us through the night!
Music is a big part of what makes The Pelirocco, so we welcomed back our monthly night ‘Acoustic Live’ with open arms, showcasing some of Brighton’s best upcoming young musicians. Brighton’s own Gypsy Jazz band ‘Voodoo Jukebox’ also made an appearance and rocked the bar with possibly the funkiest version of ‘Insane In The Membrane’ in existence.
What a fabulous start to the year – we’re already exhausted!
Stay tuned to see what else is going on at Hotel Pelirocco 😉
