Why we love it

Most Brightonians will have whiled away many a blurry night at The Joker – their stunning array of local craft beers (not to mention 2-4-1 prosecco on Monday nights) have lured Team Wriggle in like a magical siren on many an occasion.

Nestled smack in the heart of the lively London Road quarter of Brighton, the Joker brings everything you'd expect in terms of atmosphere and good vibes. There's monthly live jazz shows and regular DJs until late on weekends, making The Joker the ideal late-night drinking den to gather in with your best mates.


Those buffalo wings...

The Joker is one of those pubs where they've taken time to think about the space. It's not massive but they've deliberately not packed in tables and chairs. There's a whole variety of seating from small tables and chairs to large booths and long tables. There's even a old train-like carriage area with its own doors for a more private space. It's a lovely place to go for a drink. And then there's the Lost Boys Chicken for food. Amazing chicken wings, plus variations like burgers and vegan jackfruit wings. Great selection of sauces for the wings too, and a great guide to what each sauce flavour is like.


Nice bright pub, comfy booths, chilled vibes on a Saturday.


Loving the joker!


The pub is super nice, great atmosphere and is cosy! Drinks were nice and strong!


Was just expecting the ELY cocktail to be a premix in a bottle, served up straight at the bar. What was delivered to the table was a very fancy looking cocktail that was more than just a pour.. The Brown and the Guapa flavours are very interesting if you want to try something new!


The pub is a good place to go with lots of vibe and atmosphere.
