No 32

178 user reviews 4

With happy hours between 5pm and 7pm almost every day of the week, great dining options and top-notch DJ sets, No 32 is one hell of a party bar. Come rain or shine, this venue also has a great alfresco terrace and indoor space, making it ideal for all kinds of plans in the town.

If you're on the hunt for top-notch bars in the town, Ink (at etch. by Steven Edwards) is a firm choice. Located below the best-loved joint, this stylish speakeasy is the ideal stop-off for illicit serves. Our choice? A Cloud Pine with rum, root beer, butterscotch Angel Delight and chocolate.

When it comes to bars on Brighton seafront, Ohso Social is our favourite. Whether you're popping by for alfresco drinks or heading inside the industrial-chic space, you can take in the gorgeous ocean views. If you thought it couldn't get any better, there are also parties at the weekend.
