Description: The Blue Man is a relaxed and informal Cafe-Bar with Brighton Soul and 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...

“Amazing food, friendly staff and great atmosphere!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

We visited The Blue Man on a Saturday early evening and were lucky enough to secure a cozy sofa in the corner for our meal! First impressions were great, with the lovely Moroccan decor and super friendly staff who were keen to divulge recommendations and details about the dishes!
We ordered a sharing platter of small dishes including falafel, grilled halloumi cheese with honey apple, and 100% lamb sausages, we also shared the tangine which had been slow cooking all day and was just ready for serving - all of which were fresh, fragrant and delicious!
I would highly recommend this place to anyone as a delightful quirky place to spend an evening!

“Cozy, tasty and lovely staff!!!!”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

I am at the Blue Man quite often as my friend plays music downstairs on a regular basis. Love the food healthy and good value as for the price you pay the portions are very generous. The atmosphere is also very lade back, with lovely staff always having a smile on their faces. Would most certainty recommend Blue Man to anyone, from having a nice meal, to even a quick beer.

“One of the jewels in Brighton's crown”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

We ordered the sultan kemia and it was divine. We honestly cant communicate the standard of the food. Fantastic value as well. Seriously cool design and atmosphere. If I wanted to show off Brighton to a visitor, I would bring them for dinner here. See it for yourself

“New Brighton Discovery”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Feel free to consider this place a real discovery for the city of Brighton. Not only because of its prime location, just a short walk from the train station, not even because of the affordable prices on both drinks and food. This place is great, the food is delicious, music is just right and there is a certain touch about the place that makes the customer feel welcome and relaxed. The setting is as you would imagine northern African-themed, same as the food, and the place has been decorated very well. It's tasteful, exotic and practical, much more spacious downstairs than upstairs and the service is positively lovely. I recommend it to anyone with a taste for cous cous ;)

“Absolutely fantastic!”
Reviewed 28 January 2014 via mobile

We had our team Christmas party at the Blue Man last night and it was absolutely brilliant! Twenty of us had the lower bar and partied whilst the staff brought us plates of fantastic North African tapas. It really was like stepping into a magical world. The manageress and team really couldn't do enough to make our night perfect. True professionals and an absolute gem of a place. We will all be back whether it be for a mint tea and lunch or a night out. Thank you we loved it,
