In the mood to let loose, sink a few tequilas and shake that thing your mumma gave you? 

We thought so, here’s the biggest and best indie clubs to hit up in Brighton town.

Hailing themselves as Brighton’s No.1 live music venue is the legendary Concorde 2. They’ve hosted some of the world’s biggest artists, from the likes of Foo Fighters to Fatboy Slim. Gigs usually wrap up around 11 with club nights starting shortly after. This really is the venue to party like a rockstar. 

Club Revenge is one of the biggest and most famous LGBT clubs in the South. It’s two dance floors have seen plenty of booty shaking over the past 25 years and there’s plenty more to come. Expect glitter balls, karaoke nights, foam parties and every extremity of flamboyant fun. This is the the place to let your hair down and party hard. 

Coalition is a beachfront institution and the place to be seen partying into the wee hours of the morning. It’s a renowned live music hotspot and has seen the likes of Jaguar Skills and AlunaGeorge gracing the decks. Trash Mondays are a particular student favourite for some school night banging beats and lit vibes. 

Top quality events, world class DJ’s and more rooms and floors than you can count, make The Arch one of Brighton’s best venues to party in. It’s hosted the likes of Carl Cox, Annie Mac and Deadmau5. Pumping out experimental tunes to party hard to, The Arch is a must-visit rave venue that’ll keep you boogying til the break o’ dawn. 

Standing on the humble grounds of its predecessor Audio, Patterns boasts a wonderfully redesigned bar, club and sea-facing terrace. Working with promoters and artists on a national & local scale, there's always a cutting edge programme of events to keep Brightonians entertained, from massive gigs to cracking comedy nights.

This is the place to go if you love dancing your face off to cheesy 80’s music. We know you do, so get yourselves down to The Haunt’s legendary ‘It is still 1985’ and rock out to some Madonna each and every Saturday night. This converted cinema hosts both weekly club nights and live music events, so there’s something to suit everyone. Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch check it ouuuuut. 

Knocking out up to 14 events a week, The Green Door Store is a mecca for gig goers and clubbers alike. Hidden away under the arches of Brighton railway station, it’s easy to miss this cobbled (heels not advised) underground warehouse. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in swag - think edgy vice types, killer beats, quality DJs and wavey garms. Club nights start at 11 and run through to 5.30am.
