Ohso Social

Ohso Social Bar & Restaurant enjoys a fantastic setting on Brighton beachfront, right next to the pier - perfect for any private event or corporate function with a vibe that’s upbeat and eclectic … fun, fun, fun! How about a spot of team building with fresh sea air to fuel and focus for an event that will keep them talking for weeks?

This is a big venue with capacity for up to 100 guests seated or 250 standing, plus outside there’s a huge heated terrace with room for 400 people standing. You can reserve an area for your event or go for excusive hire with no fee! Vibrant and buzzing during the day, by night it becomes a sumptuous glittering venue - think glittering product launches, buffet receptions, or private dinners. It’s a gem for Christmas parties, with an awesome glass frontage looking out onto the beach; the team at Ohso can arrange live music and there’s up to the minute sound and lighting technology.

Your guests can sample craft beers or cocktails, and top-notch food comes to you via a team of creative chefs who like to use local ingredients to produce dishes packed with flavour.

Ohso Social Bar & Restaurant is located at Kings Road Arches, at the bottom of East Street, with car parks (the nearest is the Lanes car park on Black Lion Street) and Brighton railway station within easy walking distance.
