Dinners and Social Events

If there was one thing King George IV knew how to do, it was entertain. So where better to come and celebrate than the original party prince’s seaside pad?

Original 19th century stripped timber roofing and huge ornate glass windows, make our newly renovated Corn Exchange a grand banqueting hall, perfectly proportioned for all your dinner, wedding or Christmas party needs.

For smaller receptions, dinners and networking events, our Gallery Bar promises to fit the bill. With its high, skylit ceilings, exposed brickwork and an interior view through the newly restored windows into the Corn Exchange below, our newest space provides a contemporary and quietly spectacular setting to relax and enjoy yourself in. 

We work closely with our wonderful catering partners to bring you the very best of vibrant, local produce, and make your evening one to remember.

In contrast with the exotic tiling of the ornate entrance hallways, the Foyer bar is bright, light and modern. By day, high ceilings allow plenty of natural daylight whilst LED lighting sets the perfect mood for an evening event. Located adjacent to the Concert Hall, Corn Exchange and additional breakout spaces, the Foyer bar provides the perfect hub for conference registration, receptions, private dinners or exhibitions. The Foyer bar also has direct access to the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, used regularly alongside Brighton Dome for private evening events.
