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.
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!
Veggie/vegans fear not, there’s plenty of choice for you too! And with a wide choice of small plates, sharers and mains, you’ll find something to satisfy the smallest of cravings or the mightiest of hungers.
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.
Extensive drinks list
An extensive classically inspired cocktail list includes indulgent Salted Caramel Espresso Martinis and punchy Negronis, earned The Mesmerist 15th spot in the 2019 Brighton Restaurant Awards whilst the craft beer and cask ale selection available at the bar is not to be frowned upon. Serving local brews from Brighton Bier to a traditional Harvey’s Hop lovers won’t be disappointed at this bar. Additionally, the bar at The Flipside which is located on the first floor achieved 12th spot in the 2020 BRAVOS.
Step through the secret doorway to the magical Birdcage room available for private hire. Featuring its own private bar, elegant wallpaper with a menagerie of colourful and exotic animals and a sophisticated colour scheme of black and gold, this is a perfect venue for a celebration for up to 80 guests. With set menus and buffet menus available for any occasion, the Speakeasy at The Mesmerist is a super popular wedding reception venue. Find out more here.
