Tapas Revolution is coming to Brighton

North St location set to open authentic Spanish Tapas bar and restaurant

A new Tapas restaurant is coming to Brighton. Set to open at the beginning of June, Tapas Revolution promises to bring authentic Spanish tapas, large sharing plates, sangria & cocktails to the site in the heart of Brighton’s North Street.

While the menu stays true to traditional, authentic tapas, the look and concept is reminiscent of airy, modern day Barcelona or Ibiza. Offering an all-day dining experience, the 100 seater venue will also feature a Spanish Terraza for up to 80 people to soak up the summer sun.

Located near Brighton Pavilion at 165 North Street, Tapas Revolution will be open daily from 11am to 11pm offering an array of small plates, traditional Spanish mains, paellas and churros.

The drinks list includes an extensive wine selection blending Spanish favourites with biodynamic / organic producers, including working with local Sussex producers, Kingscote, alongside a premium range of cervezas and cocktails. The restaurant will be open for both bookings and walk-ins, with bookings through reservations@tapasrevolution.com recommended to secure a table.

Local residents can get a sneak preview of the menu from a pop up van offering tasters around the city. Follow @tapasrevolution on Instagram to watch out for more details.

Hoping to provide a platform for Brighton’s vibrant Spanish community, the team says they are planning several community events in future, including a street market celebrating local Spanish artists and producers. Interested community groups, artists and producers are encouraged to contact brighton@tapasrevolution.com to find out more, or get Tapas Revolution’s support with an existing event.

Promising a lively, bustling tapas bar vibe, the casual dining atmosphere at Tapas Revolution will evolve through the day from churros and a morning coffee, bottomless brunch, working lunches or somewhere to sit and graze on multiple small plates over a long evening. This will be set against a curated music playlist including emerging Spanish talent and Fiesta Favourites!

Diners can enjoy a range of menus, including Bottomless Brunch for bottomless sangria, wine and beers every Saturday & Sunday from 11am until 2pm, Aperitivo Time providing 2 for 1 Sangrias, G&Ts and Cocktails between 3 – 6pm Sunday – Friday, typical in Spain giving the chance to sample various recipes before dinner and they are also offering “Tapas Time” allowing guests to taste 3 Tapas dishes for £18 between Monday – Friday from 12 – 6pm.

The independent operator’s site will feature Spanish inspired decor, with special touches individual to Brighton, with menu development being led by Madrid-born Executive Chef and author Omar Allibhoy Cuende, alongside the talented Brighton Chef team. Menus will include a range of vegan dishes using ingredients sourced from local producers. Some of the feature dishes, such as Albondigas En Salsa (Beetroot, oat and lentil albóndigas served in a rich tomato vegetable ‘sofrito’ sauce) and Garbanzos Con Espinaca (Spiced chickpea stew with baby spinach, garlic and spices) will sit alongside classics such as Tortilla, Croquetas de Jamon, Calamari and Chorizo cooked in Asturian cider.

Omar said: “Brighton is such a vibrant, culturally rich city, we can’t wait to join the amazing food scene here. We hope to offer a little taste of true Spanish hospitality, showcasing the wonderful food that goes hand in hand with a relaxed and welcoming way to socialise.

We’re excited about meeting members of the local Spanish community, hosting events and working with groups, creators and artists, so would love to hear ideas on how we can support and celebrate Spanish culture’s place in Brighton.”

Tapas Revolution will open in June at 165 North Street Brighton BN1 1EA
