2 Chuch Street | Cafe and cocktail | Small plates

2 Church Street serves locally sourced small plates and charcuterie boards and provides a prime space for special occasion celebrations. It’s a sophisticated, intimate and independent cafe with cocktails that’s located in the beating heart of the North Laine area in Brighton.


Iconic destination location  

Church Street is one of those Brighton streets that represents the city rather romantically. Stretching through the centre of the North Laine area and lined with many branching side streets, it’s five minutes from the train station and less than 10 minutes to the beach. The iconic Brighton Dome and the North Gate to the Pavilion gardens are also accessed from Church Street, which gives the area an air of opulence – therefore conjuring the perfect atmosphere for a stylish venue such as 2 Church Street.

Local pride

The team behind 2 Church Street are dedicated to providing a place where local produce can be experienced and joyfully celebrated. Their food offering is simple and elegant and uses almost exclusively local suppliers. Charcuterie meats and fish small plates are supplied by a local favourite, Curing Rebels, who are based in Hove. The cheese selection is provided by a small selection of local suppliers. In addition to the exquisite omnivore offering, they also serve several options for plant-based diners.

Spirits to raise your spirit 

While pitching themselves as a cafe with cocktails, where 2 Church Street really stands out is their list of exceptional and rare spirits. It’s fair to say that their Mezcal selection is the richest in the city and there are enough Rum varieties on offer to see any swashbuckling pirates balmy with the bountiful booty.

Tea for two?

2 Church Street, celebrate the quintessential British tradition every last Sunday of the month.

Sandwiches, sausage rolls and quiche make up the savoury selection. Enjoy all this alongside tea or upgrade with fizz or your favourite cocktail. Tea for two? Don’t mind if we do!

    2 church street has such a warm and friendly atmosphere. My wife and I had an amazing time trying some of the most delicious cocktails, some of which were very punchy.
    Many people were tucking into very tasty looking cheese boards or cured meats. I was very jealous.

    I was very impressed by the knowledge he bar staff had about the copious amounts of different rums, Mescals, wines and cocktails available. They made it very easy to decide what to have and each time the choice was bang on the money.

    This place is well worth a visit!!

  4. Tom

    A very cool little hidden gem of a cocktail bar. Classy decor, delicious drinks and generous sharing platters to eat (I recommend the anchovies, but other food is available if you don’t agree with me that they are the best fish). The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable, especially about the rum of which they have a large choice. Will definitely be back.

  5. James Lamprey
