The Mesmerist, Brighton

Restaurant and music venue set over three floors in the South Lanes. Serving pub classics and southern smokehouse grub. Three bars offering classic and bespoke cocktails and a large heated roof terrace.

The Mesmerist Brighton – The Lanes

The Mesmerist Brighton in The Lanes is a long-standing favourite amongst us Brightonians. Having recently completed an extensive refurbishment, the venue exudes style and sophistication while still retaining some of the quirks The Mes is known for and charm that is synonymous with Brighton. This is also a big venue spanning three floors, so be sure you don’t miss out on any of the Mesmerist magic on the first floor as well as the roof garden.

Fresh New Look

The ground floor is a large and bright space with comfortable banquette seating that runs along the lengths of the oversized windows so is the perfect place to sit and watch the buzz and excitement unfold in the popular Lanes district just one block from the beach. The colour scheme is a blend of racing car green and deep blues that contrast beautifully with the dark original wood floor, gold DJ booth and feature copper-top bar.

Pub Grub

Food at The Mesmerist is always prepared in-house and from scratch, using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.  The menu serves up pub classics alongside the unmistakeable and irresistible spicy and smokehouse flavours of the south. So if BBQ chicken wings, smoked ribs, charred corn on the cob, mac ’n’ cheese, beef brisket, nachos and other dishes cooked with Cajun spices and using rubs and marinades are your thing, you’re in for a treat!

Sunday Roast

Alongside the ever-popular weekday menu The Mesmerist pub in the centre of Brighton’s Lanes serves up delicious Sunday Roasts too! The decor is stylish and sophisticated following a major refurbishment and has ample seating on two floors, but booking in advance is strongly advised such is the popularity of this venue. Enjoy the Pork Belly roast with indulgent crackling and lashings of silky gravy (which also comes gluten-free if requested), with a pint of beer from local brewery Brighton Bier.

Roof Top Terrace

One of Brighton’s best kept secret roof gardens is here at The Mesmerist. Three levels up, escape the hustle and bustle of the streets below enjoying one of their signature cocktails. If its rooftop location wasn’t enough, a magical Mojito menu is served, alongside an exclusive burger menu available for order at the bar. You can also order for their A La Carte menu inside and have it bought up to you while you bask in the sunshine! This rooftop terrace is hard to leave, and plenty of nights have been spent partying until the early hours here for us at RB.
