Brighton is ram-packed with pubs, leaving students overwhelmed with choice on a night out. Whilst this is the very definition of a first-world problem, it nevertheless means that planning the perfect pub crawl can be damn right impossible.
Luckily, we’re here to help. Cocktail bars, drinks deals and great music, all ending in a night at Fat Poppadaddys. Sound good? Then read on.
The fancy cocktail place to kick things off?
Shuffle is one of the undiscovered gems of Brighton nightlife. Offering a spectacular array of cocktails for reasonable prices and attached to student-friendly deals, this is the place to get your night started.
The beauty of it is all in the name. With a playlist that connects to your phone, backing music is entirely selected by customers, leaving you and your mates with free reign over what you’re dancing to. Chelsea Dagger to begin the night, followed by Gimme Shelter? Consider it done.
When Co-op gives you lemons, go to Hobgoblin!
Hobgoblin, the graffiti-adorned pub a couple of doors down from Shuffle, is an ideal second stop on your tour of Brighton. The place is a drinking staple amongst students and for good reason. With offers including the famous “Tequila Tuesdays”, Lemon deal on Wednesdays, and the magnificent DoughBo nestled in the smoking area, what’s not to like?
The cost-saving Font.
Yes, despite the drinks deals, fairy lights and the atmosphere, the first stops are pretty damn fancy, so to balance the books a stop at the Font is recommended. Whilst the drinks are cheap, it is by no means a backwards step. In fact, this converted chapel is a regular stop on any Brightoneon’s club night, with DJ sets a common appearance to keep the drinks flowing.
You say you want a Revolution…

With an eclectic mix of beautiful shots, cocktails and beers, this is the ideal place to prepare for the night’s clubbing climax. Boasting Brighton’s largest outdoor smoking area, and a relaxed, feel-good atmosphere, Revs is the peak of the bar crawl.
