Brighton’s only club with a dance floor in the loos opens
It’s been a while since any new clubs opened in the city – and now we’ve got one with its very own dance floor in the loos.
Yep, Horizon, the new venture from the people behind On The Beach and Afro Nation, is bringing the party to the gender-neutral bathroom at its new seafront club opened on Friday 22nd September.
Dubbed the Hidden Corner, in true Ibiza style, there are disco and house tunes playing in the bathroom, which comes complete with a dance floor, lights and mirror ball.
But it’s not just about the loos (as cool as they are). The new three-room venue on the spot that used to be Shoosh is giving us lots of reasons to return to the beach for a night out, promising a cutting-edge, diverse and inclusive clubbing experience.
There’s a large main room, plus a tunnel area devoted to more underground tunes, all equipped with the requisite top-notch sound and light systems.
Another first for the city, you can book the booths right behind the DJ if you fancy a touch of prime front-row action.
Friday nights are student nights with Lost, playing a mix of chart, commercial and indie in the main room with UKG, funk and Afrobeat in the tunnel.
Saturday is the club’s flagship night and you can expect house, garage, DNB, Afrobeat and disco classics, plus guest appearances from the likes of Jax Jones and Solardo.
But Horizon isn’t the only new club on the block. Chalk opened Dust, a live music venue and club in the heart of the Lanes on East Street, on Monday 25th September.
It’s open six nights a week, covering pretty much all the musical bases, from hip hop (Mondays) and emo (Tuesdays) to drill (Wednesdays), RnB (Thursdays), pop (Fridays) and indie (Saturdays).
We haven’t seen the interior yet, but they promise an industrial-chic design with state-of-the-art sound system, lighting and neon effects creating a “one-of-a-kind experience that pushes the boundaries of conventional nightlife”. Bring. It. On.
