You want it, Brighton’s got it. Nightlife here is renowned, thanks to the city’s eclectic, anything-goes attitude, fun-by-the-seaside air and sizeable student and LGBT populations.

Every night out in Brighton should start in one of its characterful pubs, where you can mingle with the locals and maybe catch some live music too. Old favourites include The Basketmakers Arms (12 Gloucester Road), which serves traditional surroundings and real ales in North Laine, The Coach House (59 Middle Street), where there is a good wine list, and The Great Eastern (103 Trafalgar Street), which prides itself on a lack of fruit machines and TVs and an abundance of whiskies.

Students find their entertainment in establishments such as The Prince Albert (48 Trafalgar Street), right by the station and with live rock upstairs, East Street Tap (74 East Street), where you will find craft beers and DJs playing indie tracks, or The Marlborough (4 Prince’s Street), a popular lesbian haunt with a theatre upstairs. Elsewhere, The Font (Union Street) is a fun bar in a converted chapel, and The Dorset (28 North Road) is something of an institution in North Laine.

Bartender pouring beer

Brighton’s oldest pub is The Cricketers (15 Black Lion Street) in the heart of Brighton’s Lanes, and still one of the city’s favourite boozers.
