Cocktail Offer

Not only does this seafront spot have a beautiful terrace that's perfect for gazing out of (when you aren't gazing into each other's eyes), but there's even a specially-curated drinks menu and food to take you from brunch to dinner. They are pretty well-known as a gig venue, so it's a good spot to catch a band together.

The Lion and Lobster

£20 Set menu 2 courses: and 2 other offers

One of the oldest pubs in the city, The Lion and Lobster oozes the kind of ambiance and character that makes it such a good date night destination. The place is adorned with mahogany and history, with period pieces and roaring open fires... plus the delicious dishes and mean selection of beer and local ales doesn't hurt.

The Mesmerist

95 user reviews 4

The Mesmerist is one of the quirkiest bars in the city and perfect for a date night in Brighton. Inspired by 1930s gin palaces and decorated with steampunk flourishes, this unique watering hole doesn't just offer cool surroundings; there's live music, entertainment and a whole menu of American food to keep your belly satisfied.

The Tempest Inn

22 user reviews 5

What more could you want out of a date night pub than what the Tempest offers? They've got the beachfront views, beer and delicious food in one of the quirkiest settings around. You and bae could be drinking while sat inside a cavern – now that's a conversation starter other than 'who was the last to hang the washing up?'

Kooks is eco-friendly and delicious, so best enjoyed by those socially-minded couples on date night. The interior focuses on upcycling; from the menu boards made of old vinyl covers to their cool second-hand LP jukebox. Meanwhile, you can eat a selection of tasty British treats and wash it down with English sparkling wine and local ales.

If you're looking for show-stopping cocktails in the North Laines, this slinky hotel bar is one of the best places around. Not only can you choose from an extensive list of mouth-wateringly good creations, but you can even get a token for the photobooth with each drink, so you'll have a cute memento to take home.
