Longman

Gemini Bar

Probably the biggest beer garden in B'lighty with a 500 seater open air patio. Table service, live bands & views to die for! “The big momma of summer drinking spots. Quality live music, and for free too, along with big jugs of cocktails and table service from some of the tastiest bar staff in Britain.

The Hope

With a highly central position between the Clock Tower and Brighton station, the Hope is a bustling, music-led, watering hole popular with everyone from skinny, guitar-toting types to the after-work crowd, with the location guaranteeing a regular supply of fresh faces. There are always quality tunes on the stereo, from 13th Floor Elevators to The Automatic; a recently installed pizza oven, meanwhile, means no-one need go hungry.

Saint George's

A cosy, relaxed, pub tucked away behind Kemp Town village, the St George's Inn has now been taken over by Steve - formerly of the legendary Shakespeare's Head - ably assisted by Chewie, Beth and Tomme. Stuffed full of memorabilia, and also boasting the coveted green sofa, everyone's welcome in this "cast iron killer local" (The Brighton Source). A selection of well-kept ale is served on rotation, alongside the ever-popular Harveys.

The Cobblers Thumb

An unpretentious local with plenty of regulars, and fitted out with wi-fi too. Although the Ozzie theme is gone now that Matt has replaced the string of managers from Down Under, their spirit lingers on in the selection of imported Australian beers, and in the general laaaaaaid back feel. They boast a heated beer garden and free pool every afternoon.

The Juggler

Located just into Hove, the Juggler attracts a mixed crowd from regulars to pre-club revellers, drawn in by the warm atmosphere, long happy hours and top class DJs. They offer free wi-fi, sporting events on TV and various weekly events such as the open mic and live gigs. The pavement tables are a popular option during the summer, while they're open until the early hours every night of the week all year round.

The Juggler

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.

The Globe

St James

The Saint James is a vibrant little pub with a huge bar and a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere. Situated in the ‘bohemian’ Kemptown in East Brighton, the Saint James is as welcoming as the area is colourful. Only a stone’s throw from the beach, this convivial hostelry can be found nuzzling away from the hectic seafront, providing a safe haven for more discerning locals and well-informed holidaymakers alike.

St James

The Hampton

A stone's throw from Churchill Square but slightly off the beaten track, The Hampton attracts a lot of regular faces, yet its stylish, Scandinavian-style 70’s décor is a long way from a standard English locals-only boozer. The beer garden is a particular attraction, a daytime sun-trap that’s equally comfortable in the evenings thanks to halogen heaters.

The Hampton

Thomas Kemp

Having undergone a serious going-over since its days as Polar East, The Thomas Kemp now boasts a rather different character, with old maps on the wall and even a full suit of armour in the corner. There's a sun-trap beer garden to the rear, while windows at front and back are thrown wide open duirng summer; in winter, you're best off staying inside and making yourself acquainted with the cake. Not just in the winter, for that matter.

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.

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.

Easy Bar

Centrally located but markedly different in atmosphere from anything on neighbouring West Street, the Easy Bar has a committed lunchtime and after work crowd during the week, turning into more of a party venue at weekends. They have DJs every weekend, playing everything from house to funk and soul, with the regular It’s A Rave Dave being particularly notorious. There’s also a monthly comedy night and, though a long way from a sports bar, they show most footie matches too.

The Greene Room

The pub has been immortalised by Graham Greene in his classic novel "Brighton Rock". In honour of that it was decided that the upstairs bar be refurbished in 2005 and re-named The Greene Room.

Earth & Stars

Surely the most environmentally friendly pub in Brighton, the Earth and Stars is powered by a solar panel in the roof and serves organic lager, cider, spirits and wine, offering a rare chance to help save the planet by getting another round in. If it's all starting to sound a little worthy, fear not - they do plenty of non-organic food and drink too, and the atmosphere, usually fairly mellow, is livelier at weekends.

Western Front

A lively, centrally located pub, the Western Front is popular with both an after-work crowd as well as being a good fun weekend venue. The patio tables are prime people-watching spots thanks to their proximity to Churchill Square, great in the summer for sharing a jug of Pimms.

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.

Bar Lion D'or

Recently refurbished to appeal to a wider market, offering a more relaxed and chilled feel than its previous upmarket wine bar concept.   Lovely ‘sun –trap’ outside to people watch whilst enjoying a cold beer or nice glass of wine.   Stylish but basic bar food on offer all week through.

The Shakespeare's Head

With the sort of friendly, laid-back feel more usually found in an old-school locals’ boozer, yet with a younger crowd and a livelier atmosphere, the Shakespeare’s Head is a gem of a pub situated just off the Seven Dials. They also offer two outsside spaces, benches to the front and an intimate beer garden to the rear.

Sidewinder

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.

Duke of Norfolk

With well-stocked bookshelves, signs and trinkets from bygone eras and a classic noble name (complete with Latin motto), the Duke of Norfolk is bursting with old-school charm. The place has much of the feel and atmosphere of a traditional pub –except, seeing as it's actually the 21st century 'n' all, they also have more modern perks like wi-fi access too. Look out for DJs at weekends and a weekly open mic night.

Three Graces

Seneca envisaged them as smiling nude maidens. The Florentine philosophers thought they represented the three stages of love: beauty, desire and fulfillment. And among those who have had a go at depicting them in art are Antonio Canova, Francesco Del Cosa, Botticelli, Pontormo and, most famously, the Italian Renaissance painter Raphael.
