Overview
More
Whether you want somewhere to meet up for a coffee or something stronger during the day, while away a few hours while browsing on our free WiFi, or somewhere to start your evening off or party the night away, you're assured of a warm welcome from the friendly team at The Zone. In addition to the premium brands, you can also try a range of craft lagers and ciders, artisan spirits or, for something more exotic, one of The Zone's signature cocktails - created just for you by the resident mixologist. Recently refurbished, and located at the top of the strip on St James's Street, the contemporary venue is perfectly placed and open from 10am until late every night of the week, with live music and entertainment at the weekend. The Zone features a VIP area for up to 15 people and the venue is available for groups, celebrations and exclusive private hire with a capacity of around 70 people. Well behaved Stag and Hen parties and groups are welcome - perhaps give the venue a call so they can expect you.

Your standard over priced Gay Bar in the heart of Kemptown Brighton. Staff attentive however unlike several similar venue who often look down their noses at customers. Overpriced but that's the pink pound for you. Seems to have a plethora of professional drinkers who seeds...More

This is a small bar that does cocktails, we got 2 for £10 because of the deal at that time, and went back for more. All brought to the table for you. Great atmosphere, obviously a popular place for locals and visitors alike.
