Introducing Rock ‘n’ Roller, Brighton’s first American restaurant & pool bar

Brighton is known for its individuality. Therefore, it only seemed right that the first restaurant/pool bar to call Sussex home should open in the city. In the two months since Rock & Roller exploded onto the scene, it’s quickly won an army of loyal fans, livening up Western Road with its delicious mix of American-inspired food, great beers, fine wines and spirits, and not forgetting fantastic cocktails.

Dedicated attention to design detail and carefully chosen funky furniture have been teamed with a menu inspired by the best cuisine the States has to offer, and one that firmly captures the Rock & Roller spirit. It’s relaxed, fun and downright tasty!

Dine downstairs and you’ll be immersed in a super chilled, laid back atmosphere, surrounded by the most amazing vintage furniture, hand picked and dating back to the Art Deco period, with some pieces originating from as early as 1900.

Venture upstairs and prepare to enter pool heaven. With five tables to choose from, it’s the perfect spot to shoot some pool with your friends, over a few beers and a bite to eat. Why not join the pool loyalty scheme? Play for nine hours and get a tenth hour free. The atmosphere is relaxed and harks back to a bygone era, with a comfortable and large seating booth, original ’50s milk bar stools, and big cinema screen playing old movies.

Rock & Roller is open throughout the day from 9.30am until midnight (until 1am on weekends). Head down and sample the all-American breakfast – three eggs cooked any style with a range of extras including bacon, sausage or a 5oz steak – among other scrumptious choices.

The lunchtime/dinner menu includes classics, like colossal home-made burgers (chicken, beef and two types of vegetarian), locally-smoked ribs and melt-in-the-mouth steaks from the grill. Rock & Roller burgers have already taken Brighton by storm, with one journalist adding: “Warning: these towering burgers are not for the faint hearted so make sure you’re hungry.”

There are plenty of lighter snacks available, including Maryland crab cakes and a number of exciting salads. The kids menu is proving popular with mums stopping by with little ones for lunch. So whether you’re looking for a place to hang out with friends, during the week or at the weekend, Rock & Roller fits the bill every time –for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a light snack and a coffee.
It’s currently cocktail season down at Rock & Roller, with a 2-4-1 deal on Martinis from Monday to Wednesday, 6pm to 9pm, until the end of June. It’s time to gather your friends together… why should Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda have all the fun?!

And Rock & Roller hasn’t forgotten the city’s many students either. You need a break from all that studying so step away from the books and race down to Rock & Roller where they’re offering students a super deal of a burger and a pint for just £8.95 when you present your NUS card. The Rock & Roller lifestyle is easy to live by with great value and it’s good fun too.

» Brighton Lights 31

Our new programme for thelatest.tv sees Juice FM presenter Guy Lloyd investigate all manner of things. He starts off with chart-topping band The Hoosiers who were mega-successful a couple of years ago, were dropped by their major label and have become fashionably independent. Their chart-topping album cost £1 million to record, their new album £100 and we reckon it's just as good. We have exclusive footage of this new record. Guy does crazy-golfing with them, checks out their sound-check and witnesses the fans' adoration of the band at Audio in Brighton. In future shows Guy will be doing waxing, Dot Cotton, air guitar and needs your suggestions for more crazy things (or people) to do. Send to bill@thelatest.co.uk
