The Font


Hidden in amongst Brighton's South Lanes, Font is a bar-cum-pub in the city with a uniquely traditional past, yet overtly modern, party forward clientele. 

Found in a former 17th Century chapel, the interior of Font in Brighton is hugely steeped in history and tradition the like. From its sweeping circular bar and two tier level to its traditional wooden pulpits overlooking the main area, Font has managed to retain the furniture and feel of a historically swept chapel, yet keep the clientele strictly dust free and party friendly. 

Laid back and relaxed during the daylight hours, Font in Brighton's South Lanes is just the spot to catch up on some pocket friendly pub grub and foodie wares; but once the sun goes down? Well then, that's a different matter completely. Raucous and bustling come the weekend, Font turns in to a hot spot for the city's young and fun where rock bottom drinks prices and DJ nights do them right.
