The Globe

One of the very few traditional pubs in close proximity to the seafront clubs. Instead of tacky pre-club décor, think mustard and deep red colouring, a copper-paneled ceiling, ornate mirrors, a chandelier and even a Sherlock Holmes style library downstairs. Yet it’s no old man’s boozer: they offer wireless connections for those with laptops and, for those without, a fully-connected PC on the bar.

For those who like their drinks a little shorter, The Great Eastern boasts a selection of over 40 Bourbons, as well as a healthy selection of Irish and Scotch whiskies, gins, rums and vodkas, and range of classic cocktails to boot.

Fortune of War

Having opened its doors way back in 1882, the Fortune of War is far and away the oldest seafront watering whole, and hence the only pub amongst numerous clubs and bars. It is also the only venue in the whole of Brighton to be shaped like an upside down boat. The main attraction, however, has to be the extremely large beer garden, otherwise known as Brighton beach – offering unparalleled views and atmosphere, even if it is a tad pebbly.

The Black Lion

Slap-bang in the middle of the Lanes, the Black Lion is a lively late-night venue, with funky house DJs to get you in the mood at weekends. But however busy it gets, it retains a friendly atmosphere and, with comfy sofas, free wireless internet connection and photography by local artists on the walls, it's becoming an increasingly popular midweek and daytime haunt too.

Signalman

Thanks to a boom in the 1840s, dontcha know, Britain’s railway system is the oldest in the world. And though the trains haven’t improved much in terms of punctuality over the subsequent century and a half, the good news is that wherever those clever Victorians built stations, they also built station pubs, offering a warm, cosy environment for travelling passengers and station hands alike.

Leconfield Arms

A good ole locals pub with a large number of regulars, the Lord Leconfield Arms is the sort of traditional no-nonsense watering hole that’s becoming increasingly rare in the face of the pre-club bar invasion. The focus is more on maintaining a friendly, genuinely welcoming atmosphere than on specific events, but they do screen sports matches, offer pool and darts and host various one-off live music events. They also offer an excellent beer garden.

Laid-back in the daytime and lively at night, the Sidewinder is a large and bustling watering hole that's firmly entrenched in the nightlife of Brighton, attracting drinkers from across the city as well as plenty of Kemptown locals.

Thomas Kemp

Not just in the winter, for that matter.

The Cobblers Thumb

An unpretentious local with plenty of regulars, and fitted out with wi-fi too.

The Exchange

Huge, footie-mad local with friendly atmosphere and plenty of regulars. The Exchange is the place to head for the big games or events like St George's Day, when they really go to town; but it's equally good for a mellow, midweek pint and game of pool. With atmospheric traditional decor, expect pavement tables, a heated rear garden, and a games room with pool table and darts board.

Marlborough Pub

The Marlborough Hotel was the first of Brighton’s pubs to cater for a predominantly lesbian clientele, but it's also popular with thespians thanks to a small (55 capacity) theatre upstairs. This hosts a show of some kind – gigs, plays or comedy – most nights of the week and is also available for private hire. The pub itself is divided into two distinct parts: the mellower, non-smoking Theatre Bar and the more lively main bar.

Fishbowl

With a central location and DJs four nights a week, the Fishbowl is a lively and popular late-night drinking haunt but not your average pre-club – for starters, they won’t allow large groups. Look out too for the acoustic music night, entitled Gone Fishing, every Sunday, and the monthly Late Night Lounging session featuring big-name London DJs.

Victory Inn

One of the oldest watering holes in Brighton, in many ways the Victory Inn has the feel of a traditional pub, albeit given a more contemporary, loungey feel complete with sofas in the downstairs bar. With each floor divided into three small rooms, it benefits from a more intimate feel than its capacity would normally allow, while the location in the heart of The Lanes keeps the atmosphere lively.

Xuma

In various places and at various times, Xuma - with an X or a Z - has been the name of a classic Neil Young album, an Aztec god and a Californian beach. Since summer 2006, it has also been the name of the Seven Dials' most characterful bar. Combining gallery and drinking haunt, it's a warm and atmospheric environment, with red velvet seating surrounded on all sides by paintings and photography, much of it locally produced; there is also a second, more intimate seating area downstairs.
