new late-night hangout opens in June

If you’ve had fun at The Salt Room or The Coal Shed in the past, then listen up, because the team behind that pair will be opening the doors to their third site in June, right here in Brighton.

Burnt Orange – taking over the old Coach House site on Middle Street – will be bringing an all-day turns late-night hangout for Brighton residents with tasty food, good quality drinks and a curated music programme from none-other than Brighton’s finest, DJ Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim).

Somewhere in between a bar and restaurant, owner Razak Helalat is mimicking the Mediterranean dining culture by bringing one of the city’s first all-day and late-night drinking and dining venues to the city. We’re pretty sure it won’t take long to become a popular hang-out, perfect for a get-together with friends, after-work cocktail or just popping in mid-shop to share a bite to eat. And the good news is they’re promising comfy seats too (phew), so you may find yourself sticking around.

So what food can we expect? Delicious things cooked over a fire, of course. Head chef Peter Dantanus will be moving over from The Salt Room, using well-sourced, high quality seasonal ingredients to create some beautifully cooked dishes. Unlike their sister restaurants, the menu will offer a much more casual style of eating and drinking. We like the sound of that!

Think dishes designed for grazing over the evening with your mates, alongside a bottle of wine or one of their gorgeous cocktails. Along side their casual sharing dishes, there will also be a selection of larger plates cooked over the open fire, from Shawarma Pork Belly, Date Molasses and Pickled Fennel Salad to Charcoal-Roasted Octopus, Harissa Butter and Pine Nuts. Our tummies are rumbling!

We’ll be the first to let you know when bookings are open in the next couple of weeks. For more info, visit
