This Brighton based chain restaurant is the first branch south of the M4 corridor, located in Brighton. The brief for The Breakfast Clubs is for each venue to be unique, ‘must see’ and to celebrate the local culture – in this case the traditional seafront. Finch Interiors have designed each of the venues for more than 6 years now, and were asked to do this latest venture.
Situated in Brighton’s South Lanes, the two floor offering is approximately 2500 square feet and has all of the same menu delights that regulars of the London cafés have become accustomed to.
As with all of the Breakfast Club’s, every aspect of the interior design has to be different and have a unique ‘must see’ ‘Big Idea’ behind it. For The Breakfast Club Brighton it was important to celebrate the traditional seaside venue, without being too much of a seaside cliché and alike the many other seafront tourist shops.
The new venue aims to be loved by the locals because of its independent offerings, unique personality and individuality – something not usually found in chain restaurants. This restaurant itself cannot be missed with its bright yellow exterior a stark contrast to the surrounding terraces.
After much deliberation Finch Interiors decided that this seaside restaurant should not dwell too much on Brighton itself, but instead have an interior aesthetic that takes you away on a Trans Atlantic flight to Miami South Beach for a nostalgic Art Deco experience.
The venue is nostalgic of the British seaside, but sunnier, with a bright yellow façade. The retro feel brings with it that all important relaxed South Beach/Breakfast Club vibe more familiar overseas.
Key interior details in the space include the unusual flamingo wallpaper, the soft pastel pink fabrics on the banquets and the ‘seaside’ aqua blue wavy ceiling with Art Deco trinkets in abundance.
