The Black Dove is a relatively well-known bar found on St James' Street. Its vintage look provides a romantic setting that can be enjoyed by couples and small groups of friends alike. The Victorian décor celebrates everything great about the 20th-century vibe while the almost hidden Galleon-style basement boasts chandeliers and vintage furnishings that truly hark back to a simpler time. The venue is also home to the 'Cocktail Bible' that will introduce you to drinks you've not previously had.

A karaoke bar might not stand out as being particularly quirky, but the Japanese inspired bar ticks all the boxes. With its jazz-style décor and ultra-stylish cocktail bar and sofa area. Located at the Lanes, this is a big hit with stag and hen dos. Whether you plan to get on the mic or not, the bar merges elements of a stylish upmarket bar with the cheesiest but the best night out that Brighton has to offer. The venue's bottomless brunches are the perfect way to get the party started in style.

The Tempest Inn

The iconic lounge bar is known for its great food as well as providing a unique setting for sharing a few drinks with friends and family. It's located on the beachfront in a network of caves; the cheap and cheerful venue truly brings people together while the walls all tell a story too. It's cosy, comfortable, and guaranteed to leave you smiling. What's more, the views of the water once you step back outside (or sit at the tables outside) will last long in the memory for all the right reasons.

Ten Green Bottles

Ten Green Bottles is a half-shop, half-bar hybrid found at 9 Jubilee St. and is considered a must-visit establishment for any wine lover. There's a vast selection of wine that you can drink either on-site or as a takeaway solution. The spacious room makes good use of the walls by displaying many of its wines on shelves to get the atmosphere bubbling indeed. Casual wine tasting classes are far more relaxed than similar activities you may have experienced in other parts of the country.

Proud Cabaret

The Proud Cabaret bar is home to an eclectic range of performances throughout the week, meaning that each night has something unique to offer. The building and décor carry a huge 1920s theme while the extensive range of drinks will go down a treat. Boredom isn't an option, and an unforgettable evening is guaranteed for all. The venue operates as a nightclub too, meaning the fun can go on all night long inside the stunningly stylish setting. Do not miss out.
