If you would rather be sipping finely brewed beer than downing shots on a Friday night, head to The Hare and Hounds. The pub is Brighton's first brewery fresh pub meaning you can order unfiltered beer straight from the tank. There's also an excellent selection of Mexican nibbles.
Welcome in the weekend at one of Brighton's most unique bars. Alcotraz: Cell Block One Three invites you for an evening of incarceration and debauchery, that is if you can smuggle your booze past the super strict warden and into the hands of the expert mixologist inmates...
Your Friday night in Brighton just got a whole lot heavier thanks to the party palace No 32. Hidden in the depths of The Lanes, No 32 is a discerning cocktail retreat which opens up into a clubbers paradise come the weekend. Open until 4:30am and boasting DJs and dancing until the early hours, you should relish the chance to hit up this dance floor come Friday.
If your idea of a fabulous Friday night is sipping on a bespoke cocktail while enjoying some live entertainment from some of the best in the area, then The Fitz Regent is a firm choice. Head on in for its 8pm live performances, or make the most out of its fizz deals with pals.
For Friday night shindigs in Brighton, head to Patterns on the seafront which is serving food, cocktails and fine music. With their new weekly Friday Special there is 2-4-1 cocktails, deals on beer and wine and free chips with your drinks if you order before 7pm, the start of the weekend never tasted so good.
If you want to know the best up-and-coming acts in Brighton then spend your next Friday night out at Patterns for the ever-awesome Foundations. Showcasing the best local talent, from live acts to the hottest new producers, it's the only place to be on a Friday.
