The guys behind Meatliquor on Welbeck Street have exported their edgy, urban burger concept to the seaside, with a second outlet in
trend-conscious Brighton: ‘come hungry, leave drunk’ is its motto. As before, inspiration comes from America’s dirty, red-blooded southern states, which means ‘dead hippie’ burgers, spicy buffalo

Call it fate, call it kismet, call it good luck… whatever. Meatliquor in Brighton opening on the week of KS’ stag (also in Brighton) delivered the perfect fulcrum for our southern coast boys’ weekend – an oasis of sustenance perched neatly between man-child paintballing antics and alcohol-fueled early-hours carnage.Scott (@thepubguy), the brains behind Meatliquor, generously agreed to my (full-disclosure) request for a stag-party booking on @MEATliquorBTN ‘s first Saturday night...
