GungHo Bar Brighton

Set in the city centre. Gungho is as vibrant, fresh and fun as its surrounds. Specialising in bespoke seasonal cocktails, using many foraged ingredients and zero waste produce. Great atmosphere with a fantastic soundtrack.

Brighton’s sustainable cocktail bar

GungHo bar arrived on Preston Street in 2017 and has since climbed straight to the top of our must-visit cocktail bars in Brighton. In 2022 GungHo won Brighton’s Best Cocktail in the Brighton Restaurant Awards. Opened and run by the team, the bar’s ethos combines Julien’s passion for mixology with working to a zero-waste policy. The outcome is a truly inspiring and mouthwateringly magnificent drinking journey.

The Drinks

Julien and his team have created a cocktail menu that is constantly evolving, meaning each experience at GungHo bar is different from the last.

Influenced by seasonality the cocktails are often made with foraged and local ingredients championing all types of fruit and veg. From green strawberries and elderflower to chicory root and mushrooms. Expect vibrant, fresh and complex cocktails at GungHo. Natural wine is also served alongside craft beer from some of the best breweries in the UK.

Zero Waste Ethos

At Gungho nothing goes to waste. From spent coffee grinds to mint stems, everything has a second use. They have ‘hacked’ the flavour of lemon and lime juice to create sustainable alternatives from local Bramley juice and champion sustainable and vegan alternatives for dairy and those fluffy meringue cocktails. We recommend trying their signature twist on a Mai Tai, where imported rums, limes and water intensive almonds have been been switched out for an Irish Whiskey with tropical notes, hacked Bramley juice and sunflower seeds

Inside GungHo

It isn’t a surprise that the interior at GungHo runs on the same zero-waste ethos. They are powered by one hundred percent renewable energy and their bar was built from reclaimed woods leaving original building features to showcase the space. Low lighting creates a moody vibe and neon lit wall hangings set the scene for a great night out.

If the gorgeous cocktails, wine, beer and homemade goodies weren’t enough, GungHo bar plays those retro beats we all can’t help but dance to.

80s tropical disco and lo-fi are the soundtracks to this bar. Their prices are honest and reasonable however most of all staff are highly interactive and pride themselves on their welcoming attitude along with a little bit of endearing *terrible* banter!
