Sky Dining at Brighton i360

This year, there’ll be no better place to cheers to the New Year than the i360

Watch Brighton dazzle and dance from the best view in the house. With delicious food, great wine, and skyline views of the city, we’ll be sure to bring plenty of fizz and fun to your celebrations. 

Kick off the evening with a glass of prosecco as you can soak in the views. As the party gets going, we’ll serve our specially curated three-course meal crafted by our talented in-house chef. Tuck into sumptuous food as you look out at a buzzing Brighton all aglow – just think of the fireworks! 

You’ll then party the night away in one of our beachside bars, ringing in the New Year with even more bubbly and a wonderful toast. What better way to kick off 2024? 

Book your table now to secure your skyline spot.


Romantic New Year’s Eve Plans

Whether you’re planning the perfect proposal or sharing a romantic night out this New Year’s Eve, there are plenty of ways you can show the love whilst ringing in 2024. 

Of course, it doesn’t get much more romantic than sharing a kiss at the top of the city skyline in the i360, but what else could you plan?

During the day, enjoy candyfloss and cuddle up with a sea view on Brighton Palace Pier. We think a fireside pub is always romantic, too, and there are plenty in Brighton including: 

When it’s time for fireworks, buy a bottle of bubbles or a couple of hot chocolates and head to the beach for a great view and an electric atmosphere. 

Plenty of Late Night Clubbing

New Year’s Eve nights out in Brighton are legendary. We’re a big party place, so don’t worry about finding late-night options if you want to dance until dawn. 

There’s a lot of variety, too, with Volks Club offering a 12-hour long DJ session full of jungle and bass, No 32 serving decadent cocktails for a more lavish shindig, and PRZYM getting glowy with a UV event ideal for students and a younger crowd (18+ of course). 

Our Sky Dining event finishes at 1am, so if you’re not finished with the night then you’ll be spoilt for choice.


Explore the Lanes

In the mood for some magical, wintery vibes? Then you absolutely have to head to the Brighton Lanes. 

Split into two distinct sections (the Lanes and the North Laine) these eclectic streets are Brighton’s historic old town area and are a bustling, vibrant part of the city. 

Hop from pub to pub, find some of the city’s best dining spots, and soak in the atmosphere as you wander through the coolest part of town. 

For last-minute New Year’s Eve plans, we highly recommend heading down here to see where the night takes you.
