Welcome to Mesmerist

Ladies and gentlemen, we welcome you to the most unconventional bar in the Brighton Lanes. Inspired by 1930s gin palaces, burlesque and the steampunk movement, we strive to celebrate the best of eras gone by. We cater for a wide age range whilst offering a high standard of service, fantastic food, divine drinks and a jam-packed entertainment schedule. We support live music, and host a variety of bands throughout Sunday to Thursday showcasing vintage and revival inspired acts. Expect anything from a rip-roaring big band with their own swing dancers to a foot stomping one-man blues extravaganza. Weekend evenings are hosted by our resident DJ, spinning vintage classics and boutique rarities. Our famous midnight show on Saturday night never ceases to amaze. Each act is a surprise; watch out for the smoke and the chiming bells. The week finishes with the best roast in town.

dance lessons

Brighton Lindyhoppers are led by Graeme and Amanda and offer beginner, improver and intermediate classes.

They are devoted lindy hoppers who continue to learn from some of the best teachers in the world, including some of the original dancers from 1930s Harlem. Their aim is to share their enjoyment of lindy hop with as many people as possible.

A bunch of happy dancers, Brighton Lindyhoppers are available to teach, perform, laugh, smile and generally make people happy. They are available for weddings, hen parties, community events, school events, corporate functions, club nights, DJing and festivals and can bring a bit of swing to anything.
