Dead Wax Social

61 user reviews 4

Brighton bar Dead Wax Social is a must for lovers of all things vinyl. The Bond Street boozer is jam-packed with old-school records and individual players if you fancy a private listening session, as well as stone-baked pizzas and locally brewed craft beers on tap to keep you fuelled up.

A stylish Prohibition-inspired watering hole in the heart of Hove, The Speakeasy at The Wick is hidden above an unassuming pub. Filled with deep mahogany booths, decadent liquor cabinets and a classic cocktail menu, this intimate hangout is perfect for a date night drink or two.
