Old Albion

If you're looking for something a little more cosy from your Hove gay bar, Old Albion is the gin palace serving up hearty roasts and boozy goblets galore. From distilling their own spirits to stocking the very best of the town's craft beer, this place might just just end up becoming your regular haunt.

The A Bar

The A Bar Brighton is perfect for catching up and letting loose with mates. Whether you're after some tasty grub while staring out at the sea, fancy listening to live music or want to belt out some bangers at a karaoke event, this is the place to do it.
