Visiting Brighton for the weekend you’ll find so many flyers for clubs it’s sometimes hard to know where to get started. So, we are going to get you a quick overview of each and put them together in a quick club review for you.
But before we do, it looks as if one of the town’s favourite nightclubs could be on the verge of another lease of life as ‘The Yard’ – formerly ‘The Ocean Rooms’ could be re-born as an altogether different entertainment venue.
Its leasehold is up for sale, and the club could soon have a new role, according to the Argus, which has reported the club may become the site for laser game business.
As clubs go, it’s featured some really creative frontage. A tradition we hope the new owners will continue.
And thanks to its size and proximity to the centre of town, it could easily find its place on a list of attractions for people coming for family weekends in Brighton.Share on Facebook
If you haven’t heard, Brighton has got its new football stadium. After what seems like an age, the futuristic new design will get its official opening match later this month (July 30th) and if you are a visiting Spurs supporter looking to stay over, you’ll get a warm welcome at our Brighton B&B – your gonna lose mind, just thought we should mention that…
All rivalries aside, the American Express Community Stadium is stunning, and it comes just in time for Brighton’s move up the divisions. At last a team that promises real class has a stadium to take it into the next century.
And don’t underestimate the effect the team’s success can have on Brighton as a whole. It’s not just the increased numbers of people visiting Brighton; it’s also the added excitement it brings to the town.
Football fans down here are passionate followers of the seagulls – yet many people in town seem only interested in avoiding being shat on by them…
As the team gets more successful, and now with a great ground for people with footy families looking for weekends in Brighton, the feel good factor will spread.

Book a Brighton BnB today because it’s the Brighton Beer Festival -and looking at the info, there’s clearly a festival going on and not just beerheadedness.
Four days of fun, set up to entertain and refresh at the same time – as well as beer, there will be cider and real ale, as well as live bands, competitions and stalls.
Starting Thursday 14th and running through till Sunday, the festival is to be found just back from the West Pier.
Keen to keep ladies interested – those who otherwise wouldn’t be interested in such blokeish beer exploits – there’s also plenty of wines, spirits and cocktails to be sampled – most women love a pint, and plenty of blokes like a ‘GnT’ so there’s sure to be something for everyone.
Entertainment sees bands playing all the way through – with the occasional DJ set between changeovers. There’s also a Juice FM Battle of the Bands and it’s all finished of with a set by the Brighton Beach Boys.
Dodgy play on Friday night, other bands include The Grits, and The Blockheads.
And if the weather stays, it’s set to be one very long, and very enjoyable summer weekend; don’t dare spend it in your Brighton BnB!
