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...

Staff really friendly and welcoming. Beautiful atmosphere for a couple and friends. Nice culture theme where you can literally feel the North African vibes! Food is really filling and with the prices of the drinks and foods we definitely recommend this place!!!

“Trip Advisor does it again ”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We went to visit our son who is studying in Brighton and so I had a quick search on Trip Advisor for somewhere interesting with good rating.
I don't know much about African food but from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and when we were struggling with the menu were offered friendly and helpful advice - which turned out to be spot on.
We had a mixture of dishes and they were all lovely. I particularly liked the spicy sausage but everything was great.
The atmosphere too is special. You feel transported across the globe to another country.
We saw downstairs and that looked magical - I'd love to visit on one of their event nights.
So, great staff, great food, great atmosphere and a very enjoyable evening with our eldest.
Trust the reviews and go to visit Africa in Brighton.

“Charmed by the Blue Man”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I love this place. We were a group of 12 guys ranging from 60+ to 27 years old. We drank and ate all evening from 7pm. The food was amazing, great platers for sharing with larger groups. The service was rapid on the night and Jess was lovely on emails before hand. The venue has a great atmosphere which makes it beautifully unique and the music etc isn't too loud so everyone on our table could still hear each other which again was perfect.

Thank you guys for a great night and I'd recommend it to anyone from a cosy drink/food for a couple or a larger family meal or friendly get to together.
