Classic Brighton Venue, bringing the best names in the music scene, everything is just as you want it with the small exception of the bar prices.

I have seen lots of artists here, and have never been disappointed (although roots manuva was pretty disappointing, but it's made me like him more!!) lovely building, toilets leave a little to be desired but who the hell cares

Popped in here for a quick drink after the Brighton marathon. Really big bar, nice and clean with very friendly service. Lovely location looking out on to the sea. Will go back another time

Easily the best venue to see live metal, a lot of amazing bands have played here and continue to play here. The acoustics are not great but the atmosphere more than makes up for it so I highly recommend it.

There is some seating near the bar, so you should arrive early, it's not close to the stage.

I don't buy drinks when I am out as they tend to be over priced. Why not try 'phoning or emailing them?
