Clubs (Dance Music) and Music Bars in Eastbourne, East Sussex*
Where to go to get down
You can tell us more about Eastbourne.
Clubs (Dance Music) and Music Bars
- none because theres so much violence after people leave them
- There isn't much of a buzz. There are some clubs but nothing extra-ordinary to my knowledge.
- kings, the people getting younger each time, long queues in the rain but if your slightly attractive the bouncers will lend you an umbrella, atlantis is ok if you took away the drunken 40 year old men gyrating in the cages(shudder)there is loads of great pubs though-stick to them! bn21 has cheap drinks and the loft is table service, loads of good cocktail bars to choose from.
- Kings, house of commons
- New Function Rooms is openeing where the House of Commons used to be, this could be the decent club that the town needs (not getting my hopes up thouhg). We need a club that is going to play good dance music for dance music fans... and not just crappy house, Function rooms promises a wide range of music, whether it delivers is yet to be seen.
FR should be opening some time after the new year (Feb 2006ish i think)
- Atlantis is the best !!! Brighton Uni students night on Wednesdays is so good
...every other club is closed !!!!
- Atlantis on the Pier is the most famous - "the best night out ever" to quote a Japanese art student who comes down from London specially! It's not that good - avoid it at all costs oon Thursday nights (Seventies Night) unless you like the soundtrack of Fame & leary old men in Marc Bolan wigs drooling down your cleavage. TJ's is better in my opinion.
- Darkness 2 Light a.k.a D2L is the place that all of the grungers and skaters from secondary school up to college go. It is a christian club so it is suprising that it has hundreds of people turn up each week!!! Opposite cosmo resturant, near the pier. And belive me, if your not a townie and you live in Eastbourne, this is where you are found every week!
- all the clubs in eastbourne are shite its a mixture of promoters and owners not knowing their arse from their elbow and the local council not listening to the youth of the town and being tight with licences, and extensions. theres a new baby cream club opening soon and that shows some promise however i havent been there i just know the owners. on the lighter side anything that last resort are doing or substance is def worth going to they are legendary in eastbourne. any of their events are posted in the east mag which also rocks.
- clubs ah,, short memories round here? Ask someone who went to shimmers between 1985 & 1992. They were playing underground hip hop, house and funk whilst the rest were strictly top 20. The best night was a friday - 'mania'. the place was rammed, the tunes were huge...
- Errrr actualy ladys and germs the rhytmn rooms closed down about a year and a half ago, I know because i used to occassionaly dj there DJ JMIX
still it was good while it lasted, nothing of any decent underground dance music about at the moment, maybe i should start doing some nights again?!
- Atlantis on the pier, Kings, House of Commons... one of them (Atlantis or Kings i think) has a "no alcohol, no chewing gum" policy- well, you can never be too careful!
- atlantis house of commons kings
- All the clubs in the Eastbourne area have REMARKABLY young patrons, Guys be prepared to be refused entry to clubs? I was a local bouncer for 10 years in various clubs, and it's always the same policy more girls to boys often 2 to 1 or in some case 3 to 1. Entry is a case of who you know, and appearance. We only got told to challange the untidy and ugly ones......It may say 18 to 21 on the doors, but we could never add up? something about minus two from age..opps sorry, the truth hurts....
- TJ's and the Shuttle. They rock!
- Kings: Nappy night on a Thursday, guarentees a grapple though.
Tjs on a Tuesday: Double cheap drinks
Atlantis: The average age is getting younger and younger so get in there quick

- Five years after the rest of the country, the majority is picking up
on club culture. There have always been a few that have kept the torch
alive - witness Paul Hillyer and Fergus, who co-promote the 'Gosh' dance night
about six times a year out in Herstmonceux [Paul writes to say that he DJs, but doesn't co-promote. ed.]. Not great value, but at least
they're helping to create a stir against the dominance of cheesy chart stuff.
King's and Atlantis are great proponents of this, though both occassionally
try to cash in on the scene in a moneygrabbing way (e.g. Kings have had Phats
n Small, Atlantis had ATB). The Rhythm Room (on Seaside Road) and TJs have rare
moments of sparkle - though if the Rhythm Room gets the support (only launched
in July 99)this'll take off - it's a beatmarket, not a meatmarket.
- Go and visit the TJs website at www.monocle.org/tjs
- The Lemon Sorbet - Behind the Red Lion Pub
Offering the best in upfront hardstep and nose bleed gabba.
- Cafe Blues does some cool music but is a bit small, the other places are all
full of pointless townies.
- TJ's, Terminus Road one on the Pier
- t.j's on tuesday nights is the ultimate meat market. or there's friday nights at the odyssey. or kings. don't go to any of them...but apparently the golf clubs ARE quite good.
- Hmm tricky this. Atlantis (formerly Odyssey), Kings, T.J.s. None are worthy though!
- TJ's, Kings, Atlantis
