MEATliquor Brighton - Come Hungry. Leave Drunk!
MEATliquor's motto is "Come Hungry. Leave Drunk", so that's exactly what we decided to do.
It already has restaurants in London - including the uber trendy Hoxton and touristy Covent Garden - so it was only a matter of time before it came to Brighton.
Situated on London Rd, it’s at first not the most obvious location for a burger and cocktail joint but the re-development of this area is making it one of the most promising postcode areas in Brighton Hove.
The décor can only be described as ‘loud’ but it’s funky too: stepping into MEATliquor Brighton you could be in downtown New York; the grungy vibe has been perfected to a tee. Pink and black designs adorn the walls, metallic chairs and tables fill the place as well as sophisticated black booths.
The menu is extensive: the cocktails take a while but they are most definitely worth the wait; the Pink Flamingo is perfect for anyone in your party with a sweet tooth, the snigger-inducing named ‘donkey punch’ is refreshing and one of the best ones there; the black bomber brings the exotic to Brighton: Smirnoff black vodka, coconut water, fresh lemon juice and mint give it a refreshing kick.
The bacon cheeseburger melts in your mouth. The chips are served separately and are crispy and golden - you can opt for cheesy chips which are scrumptious.
The veggie option of Halloumi and mushroom is so nice that vegetarians can look forward to a night out in MEATliquor too.
The Dead Hippy burger is a good choice for anyone who likes a bit of spice; the burrito steak is mouth-watering; the onions rings are HUGE! If you’re feeling like you should be a bit healthier the Greek salad is a really refreshing choice.
Service charge is included whatever; whether your group is two or ten - just something to be aware of.
MEATliquor is the perfect place for a celebration: whether it’s a birthday or a hen do – the cocktails are too delicious to not leave drunk but you’ll also leave satisfied as well. It’s a place that has all the style but all the substance to go with it.
