Kemptown Project

Kemptown Project

Kemptown Project is an environmentally-responsible hospitality group which brings together the best of eco-conscious design and sustainable architecture, together with extraordinary comfort and delicious sustainable food. Our theory is that a new luxury is emerging based on what is now missing in everyday life: nature, sustainability and good health.

We operate some of Brighton’s most popular restaurants and one of the UK’s pioneering coffee roastery’s. We share our profits with social projects in Rwanda and the UK and our goal is to grow our portfolio and help the communities reach self-sufficiency.

Brands include Redroaster, Redroaster Coffee, Lucky Beach (and LB2) and Lucky Khao.



This very popular Brighton cafe provides ethically sourced, hand-roasted coffee, and serves a brunch and lunch every day of the year. By day this sleek venue is the famous Redroaster and by night is becomes Lucky Khao. Filled with design-led furnishings such as marble surfaces, gold features and geometrics serving an exciting menu and roasting their own coffee beans, we can see why The New York Times said it’s a ‘go-to destination’!


Lucky Khao Brighton

Lucky Khao

Lucky Khao Brighton replaced Pike and Pine as the dining aspect of Kemptown Project in January 2019. Sharing its roof with one of Brighton’s most popular cafes, Redroaster, Lucky Khao Brighton (Khao meaning rice in Thai) serves Northern Thai charcoal barbeque, curries and sharing plates.

The inspiration for Lucky Khao came from a trip to Miami where owner and chef, Mike Palmer, was introduced to Northern Thai cuisine and the love affair blossomed. The team at Lucky Khao Brighton have trained in top Bangkok restaurants including 100 Mahaseth under chef Chalee Kader who is renowned for sustainable, nose to tail Northern Thai barbeque cooking.



Lucky Beach

Lucky Beach Brighton is one of those cafes that locals want to keep a secret… with it’s beachfront location and fresh n funky menu you’ll have to get in early to nab a seat. In 2017 + 2018 the cafe was voted the UKs top sustainable restaurant and it’s definitely worth a short wait in order to fill your boots with delicious brunch offerings and top notch burgers.

Open year-round, Lucky Beach Cafe serves up some of the best cafe food in Brighton. Local, sustainable and mostly organic food and drink is served by a team of friendly staff who are keen for you to get the most out of your visit to both the cafe and Brighton!
