Published On September 6, 2010 | By Keira | Features

It can be easy to get overwhelmed when choosing your night out in Brighton. Maybe your a newbie to the town or your here for a short break. You want to get it right to ensure you don’t pay to get in twice and you can wake up in the morning with a grin on your face “that was a good night”.

Here’s a short breakdown for you all…

Seafront Clubs like The Honey, Life, Digital, Coalition and The Tube. The legendary Zap club (now Digital) was one of the country first clubs as we know them. It was one of the first to play early house music, back in the day here you would find the original ravers. Even now the Brighton arches is where you will find your big name dj’s playing on a weekend. The Honey Club is the place to go for house music lovers looking for an Ibiza feel. There is usually a trio of music genres in its 3 rooms. Hed-Kandi is also hosted here once a month. Life is the new kid on the block and is leading the way with bringing the best of electronic music to the arches on a Saturday night.

As of March 2011, The Funky Buddha Lounge has become The Tube. This exciting new venue is an extension of LIFE, run by the same team with a focus of providing you with the same great mix of music, drinks and atmosphere you’re used to. With an extensive history, boasting the infancy of some of Brighton’s best loved and most successful club nights and record labels such as Stompa Phunk and Supercharged, The Tube deliver an amazing experience in intimate surroundings. Saturdays at The Tube deliver fresh, specialist, exciting, influential or just plain legendary DJs every week. Expect quality music, drinks and service in an ego free environment.

West St Clubs like Oceana, and Hed Kandi. Looking for an incite into a traditional British Saturday night out full of rowdy drunks, West St is the place to go. It holds the biggest clubs in town and are full of stag and hen groups in the summer months. Music is your more commercial house/pop and rnb, plenty of cheap drinks and cheap dates on offer.

For a relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere try Casablanca Jazz Club. It regularly has live funk and jazz bands on and is something different from the normal clubbing scene and still right in the heart of town. And if your still in the mood for a bit of live music clubbing head just up the road to Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar (formally Jam). They put on new/local and established music acts.
