We had our wedding reception at OhSo Social this past weekend and we couldn't have had a better day! Daisy was our main contact at the restaurant and nothing was too much trouble; anything we wanted was accommodated and it all came together brilliantly. We...More

Ohso Social is Brighton's best seafront beach bar! By day we've got a family friendly cafe bar feel, open for hearty, feel-good classic pub grub, tasty salads and Mediterranean inspired sharing platters. Food is sourced from local suppliers and served from breakfast (9am on-season or 10am off-season) right through 'til an early dinner service. In the evening, OhSo turns down the lights and transforms into a beach-side party spot, with DJs at weekends. Bookings are welcome and off-season we offer full venue hire, making us ideal for corporate functions, the 'big 40' party, networking events and more.
