“ Great British Weekends: Brighton ”

The Sunday Times

May 18th 2014

Fill up at the New Club, an American-style diner opposite the West Pier on King’s Road; have a brioche breakfast burger with a home-made patty and a runny egg. The Breakfast Club, a bacon-vodka cocktail and certified hangover cure, is worth knowing about, too

Such is Brighton's fascination with burgers that the New Club even has one on its breakfast menu: a sausage patty with egg and melted cheese on a glazed brioche bun. Its finely shredded Boston "boxty" hash browns, served with bacon and fried eggs is, likewise, typical of this sharp US-influenced bar-diner. Later its menu runs through a tick-list of hip "dirty" diner classics, from pastrami sandwiches, fish tacos and fried chicken to burgers

"This casual seafront joint brings US-style dining to Brighton. The buttermilk chicken and 'dirty burger' with hickory smoked onion and bacon relish served in a tasty brioche bun and excellent fries are must orders and the range of strong modern cocktails will knock your socks off. Breakfast is a big deal here - try the full classic with hash brown latkes (potato pancakes)."

The New Club is a must-visit for any Brighton local and visitor. Situated on the easily accessible Kings Road, the views of the West Pier and surrounding beach are beautiful around sunset and The New Club’s external south facing seating area is always a crowd pleaser

From brunch hangover cures to pre-dinner drinks and classic cocktails, the drinks menu at The New Club certainly has something for every occasion. The refreshing Cucumber and Elderflower Fizz is fantastic on those long, hot summer days.

Whether it’s a boozy weekend, a quiet drink with friends or a date, The New Club is a brilliant establishment to spend a few hours in. Make sure you get there early and bag an outside table for an evening of premium cocktails and delicious LA inspired food

The New Club boasts a mouth watering range of inventive breakfasts, hang over cures and ‘hard’ brunch beverages. You’ll get your full fry up for £9 but the stack of buttermilk pancakes with optional blueberries/ Greek yoghurt/ maple syrup bacon is also worth a go. If you're feeling up to it the hard brunch beverages include the Chorizo Bloody Mary – House infused Chorizo vodka, house smokey spice mix, lemon juice, tomato juice, port & steak sauce with cucumber & chilli pickle served tall over ice.

“ My Favourite Brighton Cocktail Bars ”

Social and Cocktail

July 21st 2014

With views of the sea and the remains of the West Pier, The New Club should be a must for every visitor to Brighton. As well as serving gourmet American fast food, the bar is just as visit worthy. With a very cool NYC eatery style, they are now gaining national recognition for the effort they are putting into their food and drink. The cocktail menu is divided into three sections. Start the evening with their fresher, pre-dinner drinks like the Tre Bellini (crème de peche, peach puree, peach bitters and Prosecco) or one of their whiskey flight selections. The Club Classics list includes twists like Cherry Cola Bottle (Amaretto, Cherry Heering, cola syrup and lemon juice).
And finally, top the night off with the dessert cocktails, which along with the usual sweet options list drinks like the Rock & Rye (Rye Whiskey infused for a few days with Rock Candy, Orange, Lemon and Maraschino Cherries, served with an Aperol rinse).

The morning after the night before, Brighton locals flock to this hip, NYC-inspired joint. Both the sausage and bacon brioche buns come with a 'hangover cure dressing' and the 'hard' brunch beverages include the breakfast club, which uses house-infused bacon vodka, and Kentucky Fizz, - bourbon with prosecco. There are towers of buttermilk pancakes for those with a sweet tooth, and 100% arabica coffee is a handy pick-me-up.

This seafront restaurant was originally based on a diner that the owners stumbled across in New York, so you’ll find brunch options such as the breakfast roll in a brioche bun (£5) and cinnamon buttermilk pancakes (£7) alongside items such as avocado on sourdough with za’atar pesto and poached eggs (£7). There are lofty windows that look out over the beach, and in the summer it has a lovely sunny terrace on which to laze.

This hip NYC-style diner perched right on the seafront is the perfect place to hunker down for breakfast, brunch or both! All high ceilings, exposed brick walls and huge windows overlooking Brighton beach, its a little taste of the Big Apple by the seaside. Try the warm brioche rolls stuffed with organic sausage, perfectly fried eggs and a zingy jalapeño butter, blueberry and cinnamon pancakes or smashed avocado on toast with za’atar pesto and poached eggs. However, if you’re going to do the New Club properly, get on and sample the joint’s menu of breakfast cocktails. Bloody Mary lovers will love The Breakfast Club, a meaty take on the classic featuring bacon-infused vodka, chipotle chilli and a crispy rasher garnish, while the breakfast martini is gently laced with lychee syrup and rose petal liqueur. But if you’ve really gone to town the night before, you might need the ultimate hangover slayer – the rather ominously named Last Corpse Reviver, a herby blend of bathtub gin, absinthe and green Chartreuse – it’s guaranteed to raise the dead (or the merely very hungover).

The New Club’s owners, who traveled extensively throughout the US before opening this restaurant, have successfully created an authentic American feel in their establishment.

Being something of a party town, breakfast - and brunch - is something of a big deal in Brighton. The New Club is where Brighton’s jet set trash end of a gloriously bedraggled morning. Modelled on a retro US-style diner the food is unsurprisingly bold and brash. The full English is sharp; flavour of the month smashed avocado on sour dough (Club Toast) is punchy, but best of all is its take on Mexican Eggs (Huevos Rancheros). The piquant tomato sauce a perfect bedfellow for the golden eggs.

It's pretty hard to wrangle a spot by the sea, but The New Club pitted other restaurants to the post, snagging a location that looks prime upon the old pier.
