Newly Opened Socialite Restaurant Bar & Roof Terrace Is Nestled In The Heart Of Brighton's Lanes

Based In the heart of Brighton's Lanes, Socialite Restaurant, Bar & Roof Terrace is the latest addition to the thriving Brighton Food Scene.

Recognised for its variety of eateries, sophisticated locals and visitors alike, Brighton is the ultimate location for a new luxury dining experience.  

Launched by Paragon Hospitality, the new operation features a 90-cover restaurant, bar and roof terrace and boasts three private dining rooms.

Adam Elliott Co-Founder of Paragon Hospitality said: 

"We're over the moon to have launched the first Socialite Restaurant, Bar and Roof Terrace in the heart of Brighton. 

"Despite the uncertainty of the last 18 months, we see the fantastic potential in Brighton are really glad to be part of this new food sector in the city. 

"We can't wait to continue to welcome Brighton locals and visiting tourists through our doors."

Socialite provides a completely new dining experience with sleek and stylish interior creating a modern yet relaxed space. 

An unmissable destination, Socialite is suitably designed for those business lunches, post dinner cocktails and everything in-between. 

The Socialite Bar and Roof Terrace is the ideal spot for carefully selected cocktails or that drink before dinner.

Executive Head Chef Alex Puddifoot heads up the kitchen at Socialite after moving from London where he opened The ME London, STK London, Radio Rooftop, Asellina and STK Ibiza. 

He has created a seasonal menu offering contemporary British dishes with global influences, using the freshest local ingredients with a Brighton touch. 

The food is well thought out with dishes like soft-shell crab sliders, carefully and ethically sourced beef and a Socialite favourite, The Socialite Knickerbocker.
