The unmissable nightlife of Brighton


Back

Brighton is known right across the UK for its vibrant nightlife. One of the best places in the country to party once the sun goes down, perhaps there’s something in the sea air that adds a certain je ne sais quoi to this stirring city. Whether you’re planning a weekend in town from your home in Hampshire, catching a cab from Crawley or lucky enough to live in the heart of the action, read on to discover five Brighton nightlife hotspots you simply must try.

Coalition

Housed within an abandoned viaduct and full of character thanks to a warren of tunnels, exposed brick archways and different rooms to party in, this is one of Brighton’s most atmospheric nightspots. Whether there’s live music on or a big-name DJ, Coalition is a hugely popular haunt where you can dance until the early hours and attend an eclectic range of themed events.

Amsterdam Bar

With the UK’s largest LGBTQ+ community, for many the nightlife in Brighton is synonymous with the city’s exciting and welcoming gay scene. The A Bar, as it’s known to locals, is great for enjoying a drink with views of the seafront on a pleasant day, but you can also stay through the evening and party late into the night. Look out for live music shows, karaoke and other events at this laid-back, inclusive bar.

Proud Cabaret

Glamorous, decadent and with more than a hint of debauchery thrown in, Proud Cabaret guarantees a wild night out. From burlesque and drag shows to vintage parties, retro game shows and after-dark dancing, this lively bar along St George’s Road a stone’s throw from the seafront is loud, proud and a fun-filled feature of Brighton’s vivacious LBGTQ+ scene.

Dead Wax Social

If your idea of the best nightlife in Brighton revolves around listening to great music while enjoying a drink, Dead Wax Social is an absolute must-visit. This eminently cool Bond Street joint has a great selection of craft beers and stone baked pizzas, but it’s the vinyl collection that’ll really get your juices flowing. You can browse the old-school records littered around the place as decoration and even choose your own music to listen to privately.

Brighton Centre

Should you want to listen to live music rather than records, this Kings Road venue is royalty on Brighton’s events scene. Also hosting comedy shows, classical concerts, exhibitions and other events, the Brighton Centre is best known for putting on gigs from the latest bands and household names. As the south coast’s largest purpose-built events venue, everyone from Bruce Springsteen and the Beach Boys to the Prodigy, Kings of Leon and Bryan Adams have all played here over the years.
