Public houses and new buildings
In 1800, Brighton had one inn for every thirty houses. They were used for markets, auctions, and even for staging trials. As time passed, the better inns turned into hotels; others became 'public houses'. By 1860 there were 479 pubs and beer-shops in Brighton, more than all the local butchers, bakers, grocers and greengrocers combined. However, they began to be replaced by purpose built theatres and hotels as some of Brighton's most famous landmarks opened (e.g. The Grand Hotel, 1864 and The West Pier, 1866). But the tradition of pubs providing live entertainment, especially music, continued.
