If you're looking for classic cocktails, sleek interiors and elevated small plates, then you're gonna have to look beyond the seafront. Located on Preston Road, The Paradiso Social is bringing quality food and drink to Brighton. Founded by Wolfsmouth (aka the team behind Taco Lobo at The Marwood and DEADWOLF at Dead Wax Social), this is one to watch.
A far cry from the Woo Woos of West Street, the cocktails here lean towards Negronis, Pisco Sours and the Corpse Reviver II... yet starting from as little as £6.50. Interiors are just as sleek, with cosy booths and low lighting providing the setting for all occasions; whether after work drinks or date night.
With chef John Reed at the helm of the kitchen, you can expect a globally-inspired menu with everything from nori-wrapped hake to lamb bonbons. Bar snacks aren't your average either; complimentary breadsticks have been hand-stretched and there's Sussex cheese boards for afters.
