Votes came in thick and fast for this year's DesignMyNight Awards, with it being our most successful yet. But the votes have been counted, and we can now officially reveal the best of Brighton's nightlife over the last year. So without further ado; here are the DesignMyNight Awards 2015/16 Brighton winners, as voted by you.
Not many pubs in this country can boast an actual cave as part of their residence, can they? Voted as Brighton's Best Pub, The Tempest Inn promises a lantern-lit, booth laden cave for its guests to enjoy, alongside local beers, live entertainment and tasty seafood plates.
Inspired by the decadence and novelties of the 1930s, The Mesmerist is a solid staple of the town's nightlife scene, so it'll come as no surprise the public voted it as this year's Best Bar in Brighton. Come here for live music, DJ nights and off-kilter entertainment aplenty, all throughout the week.
Cocktail aficionados in Brighton will be all too aware of The Plotting Parlour already. Famed for its quirky (but extremely tasty) drinks, guests of this cool hangout can expect expertly mixed drinks, 1920s-inspired interiors and a completely unique nightlife offering. As such, the Plotting Parlour scoops the gong for Brighton's Best Cocktail Menu.
Cocktail connoisseurs with outposts across the entire country, Be at One are known for their non-pretentious atmospheres and reasonably priced cocktails. Voted as Brighton's Best Happy Hour, guests of their chipper hangout can enjoy cut-price cocktails, at various times all throughout the week.
Think vinyls, locally-brewed beers and a mouth-watering selection of Pressing Plant Pizza Co pizzas at the Dead Wax Social. Voted as Brighton's Best Casual Dining spot, come here for laid-back vibes, a unique interior and delicious food. By the sounds of it, you certainly won't regret it.
A multi-purpose venue near to the Lanes, The Haunt draws on 90s-hedonism to bring about unabashed, all-out partying to Brighton's revellers. Voted as Brighton's Best Club, come here for heady weekends, awesome DJ line-ups and a killer sound system.
Patterns re-opened in May 2015 and has proved its worth as one of Brighton's most eclectic venues. Boasting live music, delicious food and rowdy club nights - this iconic outpost has all social bases covered. Which is probably why the public have voted it as Brighton's Best All-In-One venue.
A London Road pub with some serious character, The Hare and Hounds (formerly The Hydrant) is known for its fresh ales, Mexican eats, and of course, impressively-cool beer garden. Voted as having Brighton's Best Outdoor Space, head to their garden area for wooden cabanas and unique exteriors, all throughout the year.
This new boozy burger joint made some major waves when it opened in Brighton last year. On top of the delicious patties, this meaty hangout also promises a varied selection of craft beers, delicious spirit combos and a range of miniature desserts, too. Against some seriously tough competition, Stock Burger Co was voted as Brighton's Best New Bar in this year's awards. All hail the burger kings.
