Paris Wine Bar (it’s Hove, actually)

Paris Wine Bar opened its doors in Hove in 2011. Since then it has developed a loyal base of regulars who enjoy the extensive wine list and modern British tapas menu. Paris wine bar is open from 10am daily for coffee and drinks, with food being served from midday. The small plates menu, which changes seasonally, has around 20 dishes, with additional daily specials also available. The Paris Wine Bar is fully licensed so you’re welcome to pop in for a coffee or a glass of wine without needing to dine if you don’t want to. This offers a refreshing change to the usual Hove pub offering.

Inside Paris Wine Bar

Furnished with wooden tables, luxurious leather chairs and banquette seating, Paris Wine Bar immediately feels like the sort of place where you can relax for a few hours and the chic vibe sits it nicely alongside its neighbouring Hove restaurants. Although predominantly decorated in dark tones, the interior still feels light while giving a sense of intimacy. Two floor-to-ceiling windows provide plenty of light (weather permitting) and ample opportunities for watching the life of Church Road go by. 


This is also the sort of place you’ll want to go to when you’ve been rained off from any other activities. Cosy up in a bay window with some good food, company and wine and accept you’ll be in here for the long haul. 

Secluded and spacious garden

There’s more to Paris Wine Bar than meets the eye. Head out through to the back of the bar and you’ll enter a real gem of an enclosed Brighton outdoor garden. It’s shielded on all sides from the elements and has a retractable roof, making it a fully usable space whatever the weather. But on sunny days it’s just perfect for an afternoon of wine and conviviality.
