I believe this photo is of either 'The Belvedere' or 'The Fortune of War', both sited in 'The Arches' under the Brighton Promenade. Where the piano is, there was a drummer etc. in my time.

This is the Belvedere circa 1950-1960 - it didn't change much over the years. The entrance door is beside the standing man. The bar runs alone two-thirds of the opposite wall. The other photo in this set shows the end of the bar in the Belvedere.
