The Saint James
In the heart of Brighton's Kemp Town is an award winning spirit pub with a rum list that could make a pirate blush. It's all served in a 50s Tiki setting with potent bowls of punch, Hawaiian voodoo décor and surf music. But instead of being trendy and garish, it's low-lit, warm and intimate like a secret tavern. If Mai Tais aren't your style we also recommend the ale or the Thai food. Once a month is Rum Club, where a guest speaker talks about the exotic history of the grog. You'll hear tales of Navy rations, sugar cane and slavery. Then get some free samples or a cocktail. Perfect for when it's dark 'n' stormy outside.
