Lively disco bar & small restaurant, serving gourmet sandwiches, antipasti deli planks, salads, homemade burgers & pies, select wine & beer & specialty tea, coffee & soft drinks. Run by a Brightonian family, Mad Crush are unique because we're founded on the knowledge that life's important occasions don't have to be limited by standard traditionalist ideas but can be as imaginative as the individual. We have a late-night license on all days (later at weekends)
