Welcome to Apiary, Brighton's sweetest spot, where the art of apiculture meets expertly crafted cocktails and delicious small plates. Inspired by the industry and magic of bees, this cafe and cocktail bar is a haven for those seeking a taste of adventure and a dash of whimsy.

Step into their cozy honeycombed space, where an award-winning bar team crafts unique cocktails featuring mead and honey-infused spirits, while a curated wine selection offers something for every palate.

Start your day with breakfast from 9am, featuring sweet and savory treats like artisanal toast and a trio of honeys, or grilled peached with honey ricotta and sourdough. Try their signature Viennese coffee too: layers of local honey, fresh espresso & cream.

Throughout the day, Apiary serves a selection of small plates, from cured meats with black olive tapenade and pickled shiitake mushrooms, to grilled tiger prawns with guajillo chilli and leatherwood honey. From classic honey-infused spirits to experimental concoctions, every drink is a love letter to the art of mixology. Come for the drinks, stay for the atmosphere – and don't forget to take in the beautifully crafted bee-themed artwork and apothecary items throughout the space.

At Apiary, they're dedicated to bringing people together over great food and drink. Whether you're looking for a quick breakfast or a leisurely evening out with friends, they can't wait to welcome you to their little hive of creativity and hospitality.
