I have been here in the evenings and it's packed and full of lively atmosphere. I went at lunchtime and it was different, a bit shabby and the food wasn't so great, so stick to just drinking in the evenings

It can be loud, but fun places are. We just sat at the bar and talked, chatted with the bartender. Had great recommendations on drinks. An English Pub for the younger crowd.

The atmosphere in the Mesmerist is always great, as is the service. The drinks are good, as is the food, and the staff are friendly. There is usually some sort of live jazz band which is great and the crowd are never unpleasant.

I would be tempted to move to Brighton just to visit this place more often. We danced as long as they would let us, brilliant!

There were none on the evening I was there. Just music and dance. I may have been a one off. Suggest contacting the venue.
