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!), an 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...

Came here to meet friends couple of months ago, was really lovely. The decor is great, all north african and the food was amazing, pitta, dips, lamb all delicious. Would definitely go again. Staff were really lovely as well and gave my friend tips on visiting Spain! Look forward to my next visit to the Blue Man.

A lovely little cafe, perfect for lunches, coffee and catch-ups (they also do some music and performances occasionally)
I advise the mezze platter where you can choose three dishes, the tangine is delicious! Great for veggie and meat lovers a like. Its so near to the centre of brighton and the station, its definately worth a try...

Literally just walked out of this place with my boyfriend. The small seating area on the ground floor was full so we were invited by a member of staff to sit down stairs and place our order when ready.
There was a helpful man (DJ/musician) setting up a show for later who didn't work for them directly, he ran to get us a main menu.
As we were perusing the menu a man (the chef?) Came down and loudly asked the DJ 'do you want anyone down here?'

The DJ was fine about it. We weren't.

We found somewhere else a lot more welcoming to eat.

When you guys came into the bar, you may have noticed how busy and full it was upstairs... If, instead of just going downstairs without making yourselves known and you had come to the bar to talk to us you would have found out that we had no space and you would have been made aware that downstairs was closed as our kids performer was setting up.

The man you refer to was not talking directly to you, he was asking the performer if he wanted anyone downstairs before his show started. You may have taken this personally without needing to so do please think about this before you try and ruin people's livelihood by writing such a review.

this small bar is so central and everyone walks past it from and to the station, well don't !! stop and pop in for a drink and food. It captures the exotic charms of African décor and the food is gorgeous. had the pleasure of going in over the Brighton festival period for some comedy downstairs too...small and intimate. Perfect if you don't like crowds.
