Featuring an interesting line-up of artists from all over the world, The Haunt is a buzzing part of the city's lively music scene. Located right in the center of the city, a few meters from the Brighton Pier, The Haunt is equipped with a stellar sound system to ensure that when artists like 2manydjs, Austra, or CocknBullKid play, it will be a memorable performance. Besides the entertaining live performances, The Haunt also strives to bring back Brighton's famous club nights like 'Thursday Night Fish Fry', and, 'It Is Still 1985'.
During the summer this is a brilliant beach bar to hang out in, serving pizzas, salads and sandwiches to go with your cold beers. At night it becomes a 600 capacity club, boasting some of Brighton's most popular nights. If you're looking for a place to dance the night away, head to Coalition.
Brilliant underground club with a very chilled atmosphere. Jazz and funk tunes are played by a mixture of live acts and DJs. Get down on the dance floor or relax on the VW Beetle seats. There are various club nights on different nights of the week with guest DJs. Some weekday nights offer free admission but weekends have entrance fee. Drinks are of the standard club variety, that is mostly bottled beers and spirits.
Brighton's best-known and loved venue for gigs is a refurbished biker's cafe along the seafront. The high ceilings and lush interiors of purple and chrome replace the cramped garage-like feel of the original Concorde, now demolished. Concorde 2 is divided into three sections, a bar and seated area as you walk in, a dance hall and stage for bands, and finally a smaller area for food and drinks. The venue hosts performances by the cream of UK pop, rock, indie and dance bands from time to time.
When visiting this city, if you find yourself drawn to the Brighton Station Goods yard by the sound of inviting, throbbing music, it would be the Green Door Store. Deceptively named, this venue is not a store. In fact, it is one of the city's most happening music venues. You might want to head quite early here, because the line at the entry just keeps on getting longer, the later you arrive there.
