The Bronze

The Bronze, Brighton is located at the top end of St James’ Street, Kemptown. The area is known for its colour, character and horde of independent cafés, bars and eateries awaiting discovery by those willing to step off the beaten track.

Slow + Low Soft Launch


The Bronze ticks plenty of boxes for what’s great about Brighton. It’s a titanic mashup of inclusive progressiveness and conscious working practice, mixed up with a bit of city grit, a large splash of cool and a no-fuss dress code.

Adorned with scarlet crushed velvet curtains, exposed brick and beams with dark wood panelling, the venue exudes old-world luxury contrasted with neon murals from local artist, Will Blood, you should be prepared to be transported to the “year 3000’s interpretation of a 1920’s prohibition bar”.

Fine food for casual diners

The Bronze is one of a small number of local venues that are big on serving the very best quality food and drink while keeping the atmosphere casual and informal. Think fine food but no need for a shirt and shoes – just how Brighton likes it!

Slow + Low Kitchen

The smokehouse

The food at The Bronze is produced in their Hurstpierpoint based Smokehouse. The team behind The Bronze are Emily and David Pearse, who previously ran the kitchen at the Cloakroom and brought to much acclaim The Shepherd and Dog pub in Fulking.

‘Smokehouse’ normally conjures ideas of American or Australian barbeque, so take that as your starting point and then make it all about Sussex produce and style. Or better still, forget what you think you know and visit them, it’s a game-changer.

Sustainable and local

At The Bronze the sustainability message starts with the team they work with, the team here are skilled professionals and part of a family that values them. Just as quality and care come out in the flavour of the food served, it is equally evident in the team atmosphere which welcomes you.

The message of valuing locality is at the core of The Bronze, extending way beyond the ingredients. Regular food and drink events, live local bands and working in collaboration with other venues is an important part of their ethos to create a sustainable, innovative, shining and above all fun, local food and drink scene.
