Legends

audience rating: 3.6 stars from 7 votes - click to vote

TODAY Cabaret Show Night - 9.30pm

Café by day and lively bar by night.  Legends serves coffee, tea and light meals during the day on a terrace with sea views. In the evening, the bar kicks off, and stays open late into the night.

On a Friday and Saturday night Legends gets busier a bit later than other in Brighton (around 11pm).  On a recent visit (March 2017), we actually liked arriving earlier in the evening as the bar service was super fast (compared with Charles Street) and finding a seat was easier.

Regular cabaret entertainment and DJ’s at the weekend in the downstairs of Basement Club

The Camelford Arms

audience rating: 5.0 stars from 3 votes - click to vote

Friendly, relaxed, no-attitude bar that attracts all types – but is known as the bar of choice for many of Brighton’s bears and their admirers.

The Camelford Arms serves no-nonsense, sensibly-priced and tasty pub grub that includes sandwiches, toasties, soups, pies and bangers ‘n’ mash. Free WiFi available.

The great value-for-money Sunday Roast is worth a special mention (£5.95).

TOMORROW Quiz Night 7:30pm

Relatively small, traditional bar that offers a warm welcome to all. The Marine Tavern is particularly popular on a Saturday night when you just have to squeeze your way in.

Chris and Lee who run the pub arrange themed nights throughout the week, including a curry and quiz night on Tuesdays. Serves a pretty good value for money roast on Sundays.

audience rating: click to vote

A cosy and very welcoming LGBT pub on the boarder of Brighton and Hove. The Bedford Tavern is a great place for a drink and chat, but there are regular cabaret shows and themed party nights.

Their regular weekly home-cooked Sunday Roast is definitely worth trying.
