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.

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.

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.

Quadrant

Located on the landmark Clock Tower at the junction of North Street, Queen’s Road, West Street and Dyke Road, this well-loved pub has recently reopened, entirely refurbished, after a four-year closure.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Worlds End

Winner of a Best Bar None award in 2006, The World's End is a large pub that combines traditional décor (bare wood and brick, stone flooring, stained glass panelling, bookshelves) with contemporary touches such as the IT box, new artwork and even a chill-out area, enclosed within a beaded curtain. The big screen is as likely to show a classic movie as the footie, and, as well as pool, they offer games such as chess and carrom.

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.

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.

The Cobblers Thumb
