Not all of the myriad of bars, pubs and clubs in Brighton have the same kind of vibe, so we at Society19 thought it might be good to round up a list of the best places to go in Brighton if you have a craving that only the fanciest of cocktails can cure. You’re welcome.

SIX

The most Instragam-worthy bar in Brighton doubles as a brunch venue that serves a range of juices made fresh by 42 Juice, Brighton’s famous juice café during the day. But by night, the cocktails here are exquisitely prepared with innovative and exciting flavour fusions and fresh ingredients.

KOBA

In the evenings, this trendy back on West Street is buzzing with people all wanting to come in and try one of their sensational cocktails. Their salted caramel espresso martini is what caffeinated dreams are made out of, and their Let’s Get Chilli cocktail is the ultimate tequila-infused zinger. Their cocktails are so tasty, the establishment offers cocktail classes as well! They make a great gift for a friend.

Twisted Lemon

Brighton’s best-kept secret, Twisted Lemon, is tucked away in the Laines and is popular with students and Brighton residents in the know. The menu is lengthy, so be sure to take a pal so you can both try out each others.

 The Cocktail Shack

The clue’s in the name with this one, and it certainly lives up to it. The menu, which features cocktails like Tequila Mockingbird and Sweet Chai’d of Mine, is inventive and heavy on the puns, which is a nice touch.

Pike and Pike

Another one for all your Instagrammers out there, this bar has some stunning decor and equally stunning cocktails on offer. They’re named after nearby locations around Brighton, so you’ll have to stop by and see for yourself which one is your favourite.

The Plotting Parlour

Bonus points awarded to the Plotting Parlour for daring flavour combinations like honey and mint. For something a little sweeter try a Gin Jam Fizz, and relax and soak up the chilled-out vibes of this low-lit, atmospheric cocktail bar.

Las Iguanas

It may be a chain, but this Mexican restaurant serves such lovely cocktails it would be a shame to miss it out. Las Iguanas specialises in fresh twists on classic recipes, so be sure to try out a watermelon margarita or a banana joe, which is sweet and unique, and tastes exactly like those foamy banana sweets.

BYOC

For something a little different, BYOC (Bring Your Own Cocktails) lets you bring in your own alcohol and have it mixed for you, for £25 for two hours. If you think about how easy it is to rack up a hefty bill after knocking back £9 cocktails all night, this works out pretty cheap. Grab some mates, split the cost of some bottles of vodka, and head down to BYOC for an interesting experience.

Be At One

Again, this bar is a chain, but the cocktails in here are fancy AF, and nothing short of exquisite. They serve all the classics, plus a lot of new takes on old favourites. The amaretto sour is not to be missed here, neither is the Shaky Pete, which combines gin and beer but yet still somehow manages to taste amazing.

Bar Valentino

Sit outside and enjoy your bespoke cocktail at Valentino. These cocktails pack a punch and will have you dancing on the tables in no time. Or if the tables don’t fulfil your dancing needs, the clubs are only a stone’s throw away so yo can pre-drink here and head out on the town afterwards.
