About The Mesmerist
About the restaurant
You feel mesmerized, very, very mesmerized... Please excuse our cheap )and probably unsuccessful) attempt at mesmerizing you. We’ll leave that to the true expert: Mesmerist on Prince Albert Street is “Brighton’s No 1 place that’s tough to describe”. Know what? Just go there and be prepared to be very much amazed at everything they do. Supporting live music, bands, and DJs, Mesmerist is a wonderful homage to burlesque and steampunk culture. Simply awesome.
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. The Mesmerist: A venue for keeping something different alive in the South Lanes in Brighton. Come by and feel mesmerized.
