Hope and Ruin

The Hope & Ruin is a grassroots music venue and pub that strives to support the independent live music scene here in Brighton. All of our bar products are vegan to compliment our plant based kitchen Beelzebab who provide fast food from a caravan in the corner of the pub. We have stuff going on most nights including DJs, art happenings, quizzes and more. We also love dogs who bring their humans to say hello.

We're back on the 17th May!

We’re very excited to be returning for socially distanced seated drinks & food from the 17th May. Bookings are now open, please visit the Bookings page to get a table!
