Bom Banes

Have you had a unique dining experience lately?

history3girls2Bom Banes of 24 St George St (just off St James Street) has been around for five years and if you have not gone – GO!! Go for the food, go for the people and go for the experience.

My friend invited me there to a musical theatre dining experience a week ago, I admit at first I was unsure however I like trying new things and being proved wrong. Wrong I was, what I saw was a brilliant life affirming performance called ‘The Musical History of 24 George St, Brighton.’ You are greeted and served dinner during the course of the evening by the performers who tell the delicate story of the ‘Bom Banes’ building the lovely quirky restaurant in which you sit.

On other nights it shows films, hosts musical gigs and comedic nights however tonight, on these nights, it performs a play about the previous inhabitants of ’24 George Street.’ The building and night glows with the character and creativity of a lovingly researched mix of performance, music and dining; the performers slip casually between the play and dinner service, building characters that fill the whole of the building itself.

And they don’t just do this event they do many events. Musical History will not back until the new year but many delights are in store. Notably for White Night ‘all white on the night’ dining (29th October 2011) all white food with songs with white in the title and many warm festivities bringing in the Christmas season. There’s always extra novelty from mechanical hats, to tables with their unique range of skills, ones that move up and down, ones that make music and a delightful table that houses a fully functioning model of the pier for you to play with.

Their evenings are full of delights and surprises, the team themselves add something beautiful to the history of this amazing house, so much so that when I left I thought about the stories that all houses have to tell if you want to look deep enough. And the food is really tasty.  Visit them and find something that interests you

Stay for the food. Go for the food!

If you are looking for accommodation in a Boutique guest house then call us today at the Oriental. We are a nice twenty minute walk from Bom Banes and you have 24 hour access in and out of our hotel. 01273 205050

London to Brighton Veteran Car Run


PrintCan you imagine yourself being at the world’s longest-running motoring event? Or walking through the largest gathering of veteran cars on earth? Then come down to Brighton and experience what must have been to drive an 100 years old car! To experience its noise, its smell, its nowadays surreal design…The cars have to be built prior 1905 and they won’t be allowed to exceed an average speed of 20 mph (32 km/h). The event in fact will not be advertised as a race. It will take place on the first Sunday in November from Hyde Park in London to finish in Brighton. The cars will  peacefully and slowly cover the distance of  54 miles (87 km). The winners (as many won’t manage to even get out of London) will be awarded a medal.

Do not hesitate, if you need a room in Brighton, 2 minutes walking from the waters, and 10 from the town centre book the one that suits you the most by visiting our lovely website at We are a luxury B&B guest-house. Breakfast is included and enjoy 24h access.

Brighton Early Music Festival

bremf2011First of all let’s specify what early music is, shall we? Early music is a term used since the 1960s to identify music of Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical period devoting particular attention to its performance. Having said that you can easily imagine how large the spectrum is. The festival is a grandiose celebration to music of our past, its peculiarity, its sometimes simplicity and its inextricable complexity and above all to its performing practice and use of period instruments and techniques. There will be lots to do too, public participation will be one of the main concerns on this year’s Festival which include belly dance, taking part in a concert, joining a period dance workshop and interesting activities for kids as well!
