Brighton has one of the most enviably, diverse range of nightlife opportunities. But this comes at a cost as the town is one of the country’s most expensive places to go out in.
So if you’re looking to brighten up a dreary January with a few cost-effective nightlife options, where can you begin?
The first thing to do is check online for any one-off special offers. The Dukes at Komedia two-screen theatre often have deals for children, students and retired people, plus they often have special preview nights for those who keep their eyes open on the cinema’s social media pages.
Whilst many of us will be hoping that a ‘dry January’ will help us save some pennies, for those who’ve fallen off the wagon, there are a few options from chain bars like Walkabout, Yates and Revolution that can provide a good night out without breaking the bank.
Away from these identikit bars, there’s the much-loved The Western, who provide a great choice of craft beers at reasonable prices. The charming pub has earned a great reputation for putting on fun and free events with live music and even some video games nights.
If you’re looking for further gaming entertainment, then the famous Grosvenor and Gentings casinos on the beach-front offer plenty of extravagant table gaming fun. However, it’s worthwhile remembering that these can be expensive places to spend your time, whereas the online alternative at MrSmithCasino offers all of the excitement of casino gaming, but with an added cost-effective convenience.
If you’re looking to hit the dancefloor after a casino win, then nightclubs like PRYZM offer a typically rowdy night out thanks to their generous offers on cocktails. And Club Revenge have also garnered an impressive reputation for its flamboyant dressing-up parties and enticing happy hour drinks deals.
Should the dancefloor prove to be a little too hedonistic, but you still want to enjoy music, then acclaimed venues like the Green Door Store provide a solid line-up of up and coming artists at great value for money. Furthermore pubs like The Prince Albert on Trafalgar Street not only provide a cheap pint, but they have a great upstairs live room that attracts plenty of highly-rated touring acts.
And even smaller cafe bars like Velvet Jacks have some fantastic acoustic nights that help to ensure that there’s always plenty of cost-effective entertainment in this fun loving town.
