Description: The Blue Man is a Cafe-Bar with North African flavour. You can pop in for coffee (best in town!), Amazing selection of tea, a lovely wine list or a bit of food if you're hungry. We're chilled and informal and will make you feel very welcome. In the evening we host live events, acoustic nights, dancing, DJs and parties. Pop downstairs and feel a world away from the hustle and bustle in a haven that's a home away from home...

I never normally write reviews on Trip Advisor - but I thought after our experience at Blue Man, we had to. The staff were extremely friendly and very accommodating, despite the fact it was very late at night and they still gave us food. The food itself was well priced and incredibly tasty. Blue Man is a great place with... More

Limited menu but good food with a range of flavours from the African continent and great atmosphere. Really good value, in fact cheap for Brighton, and great service..

Thank you for your review, we really appreciate you taking time to write something nice about us. Just wanted to add that we're not a restaurant, more a cafe-bar which is why you may have found our menu to be limited. Our focus is on all areas as opposed to just food but again, so glad you enjoyed yourself and... More

Visited The Blue Man as was looking for something a little different and we certainly got it. Food was tasty and unusual, we ordered a Sultan Plate to share as we had already had a large lunch. This portion was smaller than I was expecting and for £18 for 1 main I was slightly disappointed however, it was all very... More

My son's girlfriend had booked the cellar for his birthday as a surprise. The staff were very helpful and obliging to help make the evening brilliant! As an 'oldie' I thought the atmosphere of the place upstairs was great and would have loved to have been a good 40 years younger! The staff certainly helped the evening special. Many thanks... More

Often live music or djs here and great atmosphere and staff and it opens later than most bars in Brighton.

Tried this out after reading good reviews and was not disappointed. Lovely ambience to the place, if you are looking for a casual dining experience, and excellent food. My husband and I had 3 tapas each to try a variety of dishes and all were gorgeous. Spent 5 days in Brighton and this was my favourite place by far.

We were in Brighton only for the day and were looking for somewhere for an early dinner before getting the train home and we happened upon The Blue Man, and we're so glad we did. We chose a sharing platter with a lamb tagine, warm chicken wraps, olives, pitta and a serious of dips; which were all delicious and beautifully... More

Chanced upon this place today, and it's AMAZING! Definitely a hidden gem; amazing staff, atmosphere, and food. There's also a wonderful downstairs with entertainment. Definitely a new favorite.
