Dining in The Dog Haus: New Gourmet Hot Dog Joint Launches at Patterns in Brighton

***Patterns will be hosting a launch party for The Dog Haus on Saturday 30th January 2016 with a sausage dog fancy dress competition and hot dog eating contest – giving customers the chance to win their height in sausage plus other equally fabulous prizes. There will be half-price hot dogs all day plus stalls and games including a free session of dog aerobics in the afternoon. See more info below. ***


Being in The Dog Haus has never looked better. A new gourmet hot dog restaurant The Dog Haus has launched at Brighton’s iconic seafront venue Patterns.

Feeding the hungry folk of Brighton with fully-loaded hot dogs plus free chips on the house every weekday after work (when you buy a drink) The Dog Haus is Brighton’s very own celebration of sausage.

The menu features utterly delicious and slightly barking-mad toppings inspired by tongue-in-cheek themes such as the Acid Haus Dog   – in homage to the retired acid house generation of Brighton – BBQ bourbon pulled pork and deep fried potato smileys; and the British seaside inspired Booze Hounda pork frank drowned in crispy Brighton beer batter and served with mushy peas, pickled red onion and homemade ketchup.

More well-behaved dogs on the menu include the all-American classic Happy Days – A pork frank stacked with caramelised & crispy onions, classic ketchup & Frenchies mustard; and vegan The Hand of Dog –  an Argentinian inspired dog loaded with caramelised onion, pickled aubergines, green peppers, crispy smoked tofu & tangy chimichurri with optional smokey Metsovone cheese.

All our dogs are supplied by the award winning The Sausage Man, have a minimum 85% lean meat and come squeezed into a brioche bun of joy! The menu will also offer a selection of ‘loaded chips’ including Seaweed Salted, Four Cheese chips, and Chilli Beef Chips.

To celebrate the launch of The Dog Haus Patterns will be hosting a celebration of sausage on Saturday 30th January 2016.

  • The launch party and half price hot dogs will run from Noon to 6pm with the sausage dog fancy dress pageant kicking off at 2pm. Contestants should dress their pups in their finest Sunday Best or wackiest fancy dress (bonus points will be awarded for owners and dogs that match).
  • Our compère will be giving out awards and prizes for categories including ‘best dressed pup’ and ‘prettiest bitch’. Photo opportunities galore will be guaranteed as dressed up-pups strut their stuff down our ‘dog-walk’.
  • At 3pm our hot dog eating contest will begin. So if you think you can handle a lot of sausage then come and show us what you’re made of. The winner will be crowned King of Sausage Forevermore and will win their height in hot dogs.
  • Other prizes up for grabs include hand-made crochet dog jackets and bar tabs. And look out for our free dog-aerobics session around 4pm to help burn off some of that sausage.
