Caribbean Soul Food
Jukes Bar and Kitchen is a Caribbean and Soul Food venue located in the deepest area of Hove near to Aldrington Station.
A hidden gem Jukes have consistently great feedback for their tasty Caribbean food which we really don’t have enough of in the city of Brighton and Hove. Except to be bopping to reggae, soul and funky beats while eating traditional Caribbean style soul food in a relaxed and informal setting with friendly staff. They also have live music regularly so keep a look at for anything advertised.
The menu at Jukes covers a range of dishes, some you may have never heard of before and some you have. There is a new menu coming soon, but here are some examples for you to get an idea.
Plaintain Avocado and Black Bean Salad
Southern Fried Chicken Wings
Jerk Chicken – Quarter, Half or Whole
Ackee and Salt Fish
Homemade Jamaican Rum Cake
Or try one of their platters which have a selection of dishes from the menu – great if you are new to the cuisine and for sharing with others!
Not everyone heads to Jukes just for the food, as they have a well stocked bar too. With a large cocktail list based around the tropical flavours of the balmy Caribbean, it’s a great place to head after work for some summer drinks, or even in the winter to get away from the chill and pretend you’re somewhere else! You will find over 12 different types of rums, alongside liqueurs, wines and a selection of beers and ciders.
Sundays are laid out slightly differently at Jukes, as they offer an all you can eat Sunday Buffet for £15 a head. A nice alternative to your classic Sunday Lunch, and it’s a good way to try lots of different dishes too.
Jukes is available for private hire only, catering for groups of 20 plus, with a varied selection of Caribbean soul food, in the summer you can take advantage of their large secluded south facing beer garden where they can provide cocktails/bubbly on ice/island beers and rum punch as well as a DJ, live music or docking station. In addition they also offer outside catering for any size party including festivals and events. A recent review on Tripadvisor said, “We celebrated my Daughter 30th Birthday here. Staff were very friendly calm atmosphere but great vibe. Food was excellent loved the Salt Fish !! Thankyou for making it a great evening for all 20 of us Will be definitely be visiting again”.
