It may be a Tuesday but it’s also summer and who are we to deny you hard workers the pleasure of an after work drink with colleagues? To make things a little easier we’ve found the best watering holes to host post-work drinks with pals, any night of the week.
1. Grand Central @ Surrey Street
Located right next to Brighton Railway Station, what could be more convenient for the everyday commuter than The Grand Central? Serving up real ale, pub grub and even offering a roof terrace, this pub is a great place to meet with friends after a long day at work. Watch out for regular DJs and their famous pub quiz!

2. Setting Sun @ Windmill Street
This hidden Hanover gem is a great place to swing by for an after work pint and to absorb the beautiful sunset, (if you catch it in time). The Setting Sun may be hidden away but once you’ve been you won’t forget it. Equipped with a cosy interior and even cosier terrace, you can take in the views of the city with a refreshing drink. If you fancy a bite why not dabble in their delicious twist on a tapas menu, including: Halloumi, pitta with dips, baked camembert, chicken wings and more!

3. The Office @ Sydney Street
Priding themselves on their huge gin menu, The Office is another great place to swing by for an after work drink or two. Whether you fancy a classic G&T or want to mix it up with a gin-inspired cocktail, there will be something to suit you here. If gin’s not for you then don’t fear, they do offer local beers and ciders too. Situated in the heart of the North Laine, you’ll be leaving the office only to go straight to another one…

4. Marlborough Pub & Theatre @ Prince’s Street
A staple in Brighton’s lively scene, The Marlborough Pub & Theatre is a lovely local pub to go and grab a quick drink in. A historic venue, having been associated with Brighton’s LGBT community since 1970s, everyone should pay a visit to this pub at least once. Located right next to Brighton uni’s Grand Parade campus, this is also a great place to grab a post-uni pint when term is in session. If you get hungry while you’re there why not give their food a go? Their kitchen’s run by the renowned Vegan Food Pimp.

5. The Mesmerist @ Prince Albert Street
This busy pub with retro inspired decor is a great place to elevate your after work drinks to a more classy affair. Serving up an array of gin including award winning local spirit, Brighton Gin, you’ll be spoilt for choice here. Forget the classic post-work pint, you’ll be wanting to opt for one of The Mesmerist’s unique cocktails should you choose to go there. Watch out for live swing bands performing as dusk turns to dark…
