Dead Wax Social


An entirely vinyl playlist? Check. Mouth-watering pizza menu? You betcha. Cracking choice of local craft beer? Naturally. This is Dead Wax Social, a bar in the North Laines and ticking every box of cool along the way.

The Bond Street hangout is a tribute to Brighton’s famed record shop and music industry. The vinyl theme runs deep, with walls splattered with vintage records and a playlist dedicated to traditional records. Here for the latest commercial hits? Forget it.

The booze front is heavily focused on craft beer, and Dead Wax Social serves a fusion of rare pints from local breweries. Fancy a bite? There’s a choice of top quality pizza offerings to make this a comfortable-but-cool hangout that captures the spirit of Brighton’s unique music scene.
