Experience Hove's wine culture at its finest at Cases, a cosy wine bar that's a true local favourite.

Cases Hove

Cases Hove has slid into the shell of what was once La Cave a Fromage. Located on the bustling high street of Western Road and neighbours the picturesque gardens of Brunswick Square and offers guests the chance to explore leading wine varieties from all over the world.

“We want to immerse ourselves in the community and create a shop, where the locals can pop their heads around the door and find out what’s drinking well, or which cheese is perfectly ripened and ready to eat. We are looking to support and enhance the community”. Steve Pineau, Director l’Atelier du Vin.

You can’t have one without the other

Steve Pineau, co-owner of Cases Hove, is no stranger to Brighton’s thriving hospitality industry. Since 2018 Steve has opened two successful wine bars, including l’Atelier du Vin, l’Atelier du Vin Seven Dials and Hotel Una, which boast a Champagne Bar upstairs and a Speakeasy absinthe bar downstairs.

In 2020 Steve Pineau joins forces with his long-time friend and fellow culinary connoisseur, Phil Bartley who is equally prominent in Brighton’s gastronomy sector with the hugely prosperous Great British Charcuterie which he open with his father in 2016 and now supplies cheese and charcuterie meats to many local restaurants, shopping outlets and markets.

Together they are Cases Hove, Curds and Whey. Like love and marriage – cheese and wine are just one of those pairings that seems to stand the test of time and elevate each other to new culinary heights.
