A Grade II listed building that is one of the only bars in Brighton to retain its original name, Hove based bar and restaurant - Freemasons are known for their good vibes and multi-award winning food from Bluegrass BBQ. 

A building that has seen over 100 years of wear and is the Masonic capital of Sussex, Freemasons Tavern is steeped in history. But while the exteriors are gilded in eye catching golds, flecked tiling and intricate details, the interior of Freemasons remains wholly modern. Spread over two floors including their second floor, 100 heavy, Lodge bar, Freemasons boast plush seating areas, exposed brickwork, charming low hanging lampshades and a plethora of in-your-face modern art installations.

More of fun time party bar and less of a laid back lounger, Freemasons Tavern is just the ticket for those after a huge range of craft beer, cocktails and wines as well as one of the UK's leading Smokehouse's for dinner in the city. Sip away on cocktails and craft beers to boot whilst Fridays & Saturday nights play host to a rotation of DJs on until 2.30am.
