10 Bars To Take Your Parents To In Brighton
Parents can be a tricky bunch but at the end of the day we wouldn't swap them for the world, which is why it's nice to treat them from time to time. Brighton's bar scene has more than enough going on to keep even the fussiest of mums and dads happy, so ditch the family-visit dread and instead try a trip to one of these Brighton bars to take your parents to.
There's more than 500 years of history at one of Brighton's oldest pubs, and enough fun facts to keep your parents busy from examining your life choices. Take them to dinner in fairy-lit corners or sip on some serious real ale at this parent-friendly Brighton pub.
If your parents love real ale, then this is the Brighton pub for you. North Laine Pub and Brewery brew their own pints on site, from frothy IPAs through to heavier stouts, there's also big plates of burgers and hearty fish and chips as well as work from local artists hanging on the wall.
If you're after something a little more upmarket for mum and dad, then HarBAR is an excellent option for all. Located in the swanky Brighton Harbour Hotel, their cocktail menu will perk up even the grumpiest of parents, as will the big dose of sea views.
Yes, parents love you, but we have a sneaking suspicion they also love gin. This quirky spot in Hove has parent-friendly written all over it with their stunning selection of more than 70 gins, a special copper casing so mobile phones don't work (none of that newfangled nonsense) and lots of quirky conversation points.
A great option for bars to take your parents to in Brighton is Plateau, the French-style bistro in the Lanes. With low-hanging bulbs, stained glass windows and exposed brick, the venue has a laid-back and rustic feel, as well as a swanky wine list that will perk any Mum and Dad up.
