Soak up the pre-show atmosphere in our Bars, Foyers and at Redroaster

Brighton Dome Foyer

Offering the very best in local drink and dripping with contemporary cool, the Foyer bar remains the place to soak up that pre-gig atmosphere

With its high glass ceilings and open plan design, the Foyer is a wonderfully bright space during the day, but we like it best at night - when the buzz of the crowd and the stylish LED lighting really helps to set the mood.

The bar is open 45 minutes before evening performances. Our bars are now cashless, taking card payments only to reduce contact points and increase speed of service. 

Also located in the Foyer, our alcohol free bar serves a selection of teas and coffee to enjoy with delicious cakes and snacks.

Gallery Bar

Step back in time in our newly refurbished Gallery Bar

In the Gallery Bar,  the Corn Exchange’s original purpose as a riding house has been used as the inspiration for decoration. The space features Regency colours and motifs plus name carvings remembering each of the Prince Regent’s horses. A spectacular sculpture by West Sussex-based artist Graham Heeley is suspended in the atrium, inspired by a painting of one of the Prince’s favourite horses, Nonpareil. On the wall, more historic images recall the venue’s time as a riding house and an interactive digital timeline, from SquintOpera, allows visitors to explore Brighton Dome’s heritage from the 1800s to the present day.

You can visit our Gallery Bar and learn about our history during the day on Thu-Sat, 10am-5pm. 

In the evening, the bar is open 45 minutes before a performance. Our bars are now cashless, taking card payments only to reduce contact points and increase speed of service.

Festival Bar

A contemporary space inspired by Brighton Festival

In the Festival Bar a more contemporary era of Brighton Dome’s history is celebrated, with wallpaper taking its inspiration from the poster for the first Brighton Festival, which took place in 1967. The poster’s unique ‘eye’ motif is combined with imagery from artist Mike McInnerney, who has also designed album covers for The Who. The Who formed part of the 1967 Festival line up, headlining a performance in Brighton Dome’s Concert Hall that also included Eric Clapton’s Cream, among others.

In the evening, the Festival bar is open 45 minutes before a performance. Our bars are now cashless, taking card payments only to reduce contact points and increase speed of service. 

Save time and pre-order drinks

To make things a little easier for you, you can pre-order your drinks for your event from 7 days in advance until up to two hours before the start time at both for arrival and the interval. For standing events you can also book during the gig to avoid the queues at the bar. You need only need to register the first time you order.
