R-Bar is Brighton's fruitiest, friendliest and funnest LGBTQ+ bar. Situated right next to Brighton's incredible seafront, R-Bar is best known for it's unbelievably cheap drink deals, stunning drag hosts and Brighton's best queer DJs making it the ideal warm-up venue before a big gay night out at Club Revenge. 

Even if you're not going out-out, there's plenty to keep you entertained at R-Bar with a range of weekly & monthly events. Events range from 'Lip Sync For Your Life' contests, 'Big Queer Quizzes', karaoke nights and a huge pre-club party every Friday & Saturday night. 

Plus there's also a monthly Gaymers Night on the first Wednesday of each month with over 1000+ retro games completely free to play across 9 different consoles. 

R-Bar also has a wide range of drinks from draught beers, spirits, shooters, bombs, pitchers, coffee, soft drinks and a rotating seasonal menu of winter cocktails & summer spritzes - there's something for everyone. Whatever the time of day (or night), there's a range of drink offers to keep you coming back. Our big one runs every Sunday - Friday from 5pm - 8pm where all drinks are 50% off*. 

If you're having your own special event, R-Bar can cater to whatever your party needs may be; from reserving seating areas and booths, to hiring out the entire upstairs floor.
