If ye are heading over to Brighton, and haven’t been already – head to The Lanes or Kemptown, most of the best pubs are there.
I used to drink in the St. James a lot – it’s pokey enough and now that the smoking ban is in place it might be a little quieter. It’s funnily enough on St James Street.
There’s a deadly little pub further up from that called The Hand In Hand (Yellow & Red corner pub with "Kemptown Brewery" painted on it), it’s in Upper St. James Street. It’s a tiny spot but the landlord always reminded me of Al Murray. I think they still do pickled eggs too. (warning: I was a bit buckled the last time I was there, so it might not be so great…worth a look though, the landlord is good craic and the barmaid, if she’s still there, is pretty easy on the eyes too).
The Fishbowl is also another interesting spot, and probably a lot more tolerable since the smoking ban came in.
The Pitcher & Piano (IIRC) does a cheap cocktail night on Wednesday, well it used to during the college year, well worth the money and they don’t actually skimp on the spirits.
I dunno much about the clubs as me and my housemates would get the last bus home and then drink more in the flat. There are a few down near the sea front, and one that’s 3 clubs in one – 80s section with a dance floor that lights up and a stripper pole – hardcore dance / rave section – at the back a hip-hop / r’n’b with some kick ass couches. It’s across from the Odeon cinema, but the name escapes me right now sorry.
