Bar Work in Brighton
With its buzzing beach bars, classy cocktail dens and age-old pubs, Brighton is a fantastic city to work as a bartender, sommelier or mixologist.
From full-time careers to part-time bar work, Brighton has some of the best bar work opportunities outside London, and we’re here to help you find them.
Hundreds of bars
Famous for its nightlife, there are literally hundreds of cocktail bars and award winning pubs scattered throughout the city. You could work in a gin den in Hove, a micro-brewery in the city centre, or a historic drinking hole in Kemp Town. Brighton’s hotel bars and seafront clubs offer more options, and don’t forget about the cosy Sussex country pubs in the South Downs.
Creative cocktail scene
Brighton’s bespoke cocktail bars are a mixologist’s dream. You could be shaking sustainable cocktails at Gung-Ho , crafting personalised drinks at The Met Bar, or flaming the rum special at Plateau. Brunch cocktails are popular too, so get ready to put your own twist on mid-morning Bloody Marys at Drakes and Espresso Martinis at The Grand Brighton.
Sussex is blessed with some of the UK’s best wines, beers and spirits, created right here on home soil. Apply for bar work in a Brighton pub, restaurant or boutique hotel and you could be serving Brighton Gin, local ales, and award-winning wines from the Nyetimber, Rathfinny and Bolney estates – all just a pebble’s throw from your workplace.
