Western Esplanade, Hove BN3 4FA
Rockwater is a new addition to Hove seafront. A year in the making, the pandemic pushed back the open date for this beauty but now its finally open and WOW was it worth the wait. With a deck basically on the pebbles, a roof terrace, bar and restaurant, finished with simple, beautiful design, Rockwater is a true gem. Each area also has its own menu, showcasing beautiful, fresh food including a seared tuna ceaser salad, oysters and even sunday roasts.
More than just a bar or restaurant, Rockwater is going to be a cultural, social hub of Hove. Watch this space!
The Flint House
13 Hanningtons Ln, Brighton BN1 1GS
Flint house is a stunning restaurant & bar in the newly opened Harrington Lane in the famous South Laines. The rooftop is only small but it is a beautiful place to enjoy dinner and drinks. With a menu of lux cocktails, a wide range of wines and a menu of small plates, perfect for sharing. You definitely need to visit this little suntrap, enjoy some small plates and lovely conversation with friends.
Ollies Jerk Shack & Cocktails
5 Brighton Square, Brighton BN1 1HD
Right in the heart of the South Laines, just off of Brighton Square, is the entrance to Ollies Jerk Shack & Cocktail Bar. If you are distracted, you might miss it but I would absolutely tell you, go when you can! With fire pits, comfy booth style seating and a large cocktail menu, this place is truly the definition of a hidden gem. Plus its family run, which we love, and they have a food menu full of jerk classics.
25-26 New Rd, Brighton BN1 1UG
Mrs Fitzherberts secret rooftop terrace is a quirky, cute spot for cocktails with a lively atmosphere. It is also rather hard to get onto due to it not being very big and also it being wildly popular, which is a great sign of how fab the pub is but tough on us. SO if you can book or walk in and get a table, absolutely do. Otherwise they have a large front outside space which is always busy with a fun vibe or they have a lovely cosy feel inside. The rooftop even has a retractable roof! AND the best roast in Brighton… THAT IS A BIG STATEMENT I KNOW but I stand by it
1-3 Prince Albert St, Brighton BN1 1HE
The Mesmerist is spread across 3 floors with 4 (I believe its 4?) bars including 1 on the roof terrace! The roof terrace even has a DJ some evenings and is a real sun trap. What the Mesmerist rooftop lacks in views and size, it more than makes up for in atmosphere.
The Rooftop Club Revenge 32, 34 Old Steine, Brighton BN1 1EL
The incredible Brighton institution that is Revenge has opened up its rooftop into a incredible, camp, beautiful space with EPIC views of the sea. Dare I say… the best rooftop bar views in Brighton!
Walk ins only here though so be prepared to wait or be turned away on sunny days, this spot is worth the wait though. Drinks deals, a great vibe and the best views in Brighton.
29-30 Surrey St, Brighton BN1 3PA
This gorgeous little suntrap is a true hidden gem, Grand Central is just a stones throw from Brighton Station serving lots of yum food and drinks, including a killer sunday roast! But be warned, the terrace fills up fast on warm days! May not have sea views but it is definitely worth a visit!
Enjoy, take notes, share with your friends!
