Brighton Nightlife

Party animals, night owls, revellers, and fans of the nightlife will be enamoured with what Brighton has to offer once the sun's gone down...

You'll more than likely end up going to all of the student nights in the area, particularly in your first few months in the city. Don't be surprised to find that you only go out between Sunday to Thursday too - Fridays and Saturdays can be way more expensive for students, so it may be prudent to give those a miss if you want more bang for your buck.

For those so inclined, we suggest making the most of drinking games at home to get you in the mood earlier on and help spend less money while on the town. 

The Royal Pavilion Tavern, or the Pav Tav as it's more commonly called, is cheap, cheerful, loud and friendly with a good atmosphere. Imagine the best bits of an old man's pub mixed with the best bits of a student bar, and you're just about there. It's something of a pub club combination too, so you can go there for a normal night of drinking and hanging out, or you can have a dance if the moment takes you.

Clubs

The Arch is a hot spot for the best in underground dance music, and boasts events from local promoters and DJs own brands alike. Hideout is a new addition to the club scene, and is bringing in some up-and-coming acts from the bass, house and techno scene. 

The Concorde 2 is also great if you're into dance music, or if you're into something with a live music twist.  

Pryzm is massive, super popular and has several rooms. It's big enough to get lost in, and easy and to make new friends whilst you search for where your friends went.  

Live Music

Brighton's music scene is one of the most exciting in the UK, with countless bands waiting to be discovered as you wander around the town's many and varied live music venues. The Concorde 2, Patterns, The Arch, Prince Albert and The Old Market are some of the best.
