Who’s Ed?

a f:ing legend that’s who

Ed is in all of us. It is a beautiful space for ugly people; or is it an ugly space for beautiful people? Ugly in terms of not fitting into the templates of life. If they are indeed beautiful. Who ever heard of a beautiful template? Functional. Templates are functional. Anyway, you may or may not know that Presuming Ed’s is the self-loathing bastard cousin of Marwoods based in Ship Street Brighton. Both establishments inspired by the film Withnail & I of course.

Ed’s is on the site of a former bank, HSBC to be exact, not that it matters, they’re all the same right? And that’s where the inspiration came from for Escape The Vault the escape room on site (see what they did there?). Ed’s is a three story building with coffeehouse / bar / party venue / garden / office space / escape room on the ground floor and VR room on the 1st. So shed loads going on all the time.

We open until 11pm Thursday – Saturday with a full bar selling the finest booze available to humanity (well, the London Road, close enough) as well as damn fine coffee, teas, cakes, sarnies and delicious delights from Soul Soup on weekends. To hire Ed’s for your private party (Saturdays only) check out our calendar and fill out our private hire form.

That’s about it in a very large nutshell, actually more like a scooped out avocado skin. In the meantime, here’s a bit about Presuming Ed, the man, the myth, the legend…
