A dapper looking lounge bar in The Lanes that boasts some of the most raucous shindigs in town, The Mesmerist is a bar in Brighton inspired by all things unconventional, are you in? 

Inspired by 1930s gin palaces and the steampunk movement, The Mesmerist is something of a love letter to the unique. Sourcing vintage decor and wares in an abundance, The Mesmerist is doused in indulgent prohibition tones, bottled trinkets and antiquarian flair. From 100 cover main party space and private hire dining room to a Berlin Bordello space, intimate Alchemist room and Hendrick's bar, this vintage bar in Brighton is brimming with eclectic nooks and crannies.

Not only is it the decor that brings The Mesmerist to life, this slick venue boasts some of the most raucous, if not racy, parties in the city. From live music in Brighton every Sunday to Thursday that boasts some of the best swing and jazz bands in town to burlesque showcases and boutique DJs throughout the weekend, The Mesmerist plans to mesmerise with their selection of entertainment.

When you walk past a piece of taxidermy do you skip with peculiar glee? When you glaze over a cocktail list do you foam at the chops? Then you best keep your ears pinned back for the story we have to tell about The Mesmerist, a gem of Brighton bar...

Nice location in the Laines. Great selection of beers and cocktails. Gets very busy at the weekend. Good place to go for a late drink with a group of friends.

Probably how i'd decorate my own home given the chance. Really tasty cocktails and can't wait to try one of their burlesque nights for myself
