Jump to: Brighton Stag Guide
Brighton has varied and unique nightlife that draws in hundreds of people from all over the U.K. The main draw being the beachside clubs that really come to life in the summertime - one such club being Shoosh on the seafront. Complete with an outdoor area this club opens up its doors (when it’s hot) to welcome in the ocean air and really provide that unique Brighton clubbing experience. There’s also Pryzm, whilst not literally on the seafront is close enough. Plus with its six rooms and three massive dance areas you will be too busy dancing to care!
Saying that, if you like the idea of people watching and having a drink then head to Revolution Bar Brighton it’s fun, has great cocktails and is a popular place to be seen if you want to attract the trendy, city drinkers of Brighton. Finally if its lap dancing you’re after then we recommend popping over to visit the sexy ladies at Platinum Lace, our favourite lap dancing club in Brighton (and its right in the middle of the city centre!) Inside you’ll find private booths and lots of plush seating for you to sit down and enjoy the view (so to speak!)
Brighton can easily be split into different quarters. First off, you’ve got the famous Brighton lanes with its narrow streets, in the middle of the road cafes and craft beer pubs. Hit up this area if you want to experience Brighton in all its quirky glory and stay away from the beach side tourist magnets. In the winter time we recommend joining one of the weirder tours of Brighton, like the Ghost Walk of the Lanes which runs every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings and lasts approximately 70 minutes.
West Street and all the bars down there are your more commercial places like Vodka Revolution and Walkabout – really popular with stag and hen groups. As well as Brighton’s favourite Irish pub Molly Malone’s (again, very popular with stag and hen groups.) If you plan it right, you can plan your stag to coincide with the Brighton Fringe Festival or Gay Pride, two of the biggest social events for the city (not to mention two of the biggest drinking and shenanigan friendly events for stags to get involved with!)
Brighton is very much a walking city, due to its compact size and pedestrian friendly shopping lanes. So bring your walking shoes (it’s quite a hilly city, you have been warned!) Parking is a bit of a nightmare and can get quite expensive, so we recommend you don’t drive if you can avoid it. The train station right in the centre of town and will only take you 10-15 minutes or so to walk from the station to the centre of town.
There are plenty of buses too, a flat-rate, single journey ticket is £2.40 but we recommend you get a SAVER ticket which gives you the freedom to travel anytime and hop on pretty much any bus (except for the school buses –obviously.) SAVER tickets come in a one day or a seven da. You should buy tickets in advance (you can get them in most convenience shops or at post offices.) Alternatively it’s easier to get an m-ticket on your smartphone by downloading the app.
