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.
Wednesday 25th September is Tax Parity Day. It may not be a catchy name but it is for a great cause that has a bearing on us all who enjoy eating and drinking out. An independent initiative from The VAT Club JB, its aim is to cut the level of VAT levied across the hospitality sector from 20% to 5%.
For the third year running, Shakedown has teamed up with Drinkinbrighton.co.uk to give one band and one DJ the opportunity to play on the main stage of Brighton's biggest festival.
On Thursday June 27th Leanne and the Rockeros are bringing their energetic rockabilly vibe to the Mesmerist. Leanne and the Rockeros have been playing together for nearly a year and are honing their performances to give their crowds exactly what they came for: A rocking good night and plenty of dancing! We caught up with Leanne to ask her about her musical inspirations and performing with the Rockeros.
So May’s little pretence of summer came and went at the very start of the month and back we were accepting Brighton summertime as we had come to expect it, cloudy and drizzly, when that annual smörgåsbord of new music excellence, the Great Escape, rolled on into town (and all over town!) and briefly changed things for a while.

We are offering the chance for you to win a night out in Brighton for you and 3 friends. On the night, we’ll treat you to lots of lovely cold Moretti beers, pizzas and Italian platters to share. Then trot off to the night of your choice at Coalition on Brighton’s seafront!
Throughout July and August pubs across the city will be embracing the Italian idea of aperitivo. It is quite usual for Italians to stop off on the way home from work to have a drink and a small bite to eat, in advance of dinner at home.
Every year, the beer tax escalator increases the tax on beer by 2% above the rate of inflation, thus adding considerably more pressure on the British pub, the cornerstone of many of our communities. Removing the beer duty escalator at the next budget will help keep beer more affordable and go a long way to supporting the institution that is – the great British pub.
