Concorde 2 reviews

By M F.

Hit the spot for me. I am 'funny' when it comes to clubs, I think because of the fact that I go to lots of festivals and quality clubs with special events, I get pretty selective in what I go to. So everything has to hit the spot for me. What I liked about this place is that you can get right in with the action if you want to.....or step back and chill out at the side easily, without feeling alienated from the action. I went to a Freebass night, good music/ D&B that worked well in this place, good crowd, good vibe. Got served quickly at the bars, and bouncers seemed sound too. Could move freely about(not packed in like sardines or too quiet and empty on my night there, the goldielocks number of people) I drove from the New Forest (national park) to get to this event. Decided on a night out in Brighton and this event was chosen. Will I go again, yes...(if its a D&B event though! haha;-))

A bit out of the way but really friendly bar staff/ door staff and a friendly and laid back crowd on club nights. A million miles away from places like Oceana!

I went for the first time Mon 15th to see Drive by Truckers, excellent gig, thought the sound was great. Great atmosphere too, definately would choose it again for watchin a gig.

Have to admit I've never been to a gig here, but the club nights are just amazing. The two rooms are perfect as you can retreat to the back/first room if it gets too hot or rowdy in the front. Really safe bar staff and bouncers and decent seating areas. The drinks are reasonably priced and the crowd and atmosphere are always spot on. I genuinely feel like I've had a clubbing treat every time I've been here. It's unique.

By Darren S.

Just gets a three star rating.

The place is cack for live music. the sound bounces off every facet of the metal ceiling, and sounds bloody awful at times..

The right band can get the place rocking, but i found.. the best sound is in the Bar area..

Used to love the original Concorde...(even though it was small)not so keen on this one.

I have been known not to go, just because it was at the Concorde..that can't be good

By Neda H.

The acts here are always good and there's a amazing vibe that comes from a fun crowd and the small venue.

The second incarnation of the legendary Concorde (the old beach hut style club from which Big Beat was born) still draws in the best local and national talent to its no-frills space.

The Venue
It may be out of the way in Brighton terms but Concorde 2 has its finger firmly on the pulse with live music earlier in the evening making way for club nights that continue well into the next day. Music fans have a lot of good reasons to make the trek down Madeira Drive. First a Victorian teahouse, then a biker cafe, this spacious two-room venue situated at the bottom of Madeira Drive seems to have found its true calling as Brighton’s number one live music venue. Renowned as an exciting showcase for new and upcoming bands, as well as a regular haunt for the more established ones, loyal music lovers provide a solid fan base ensuring that the club is rarely empty.

The People
Live music fans spanning every genre from rock to reggae make the pilgrimage to Concorde 2 on a regular basis, knowing that this is the place to spot the next big things before they ascend the dizzying ladder to global domination. When they head home, energetic club kids take their place, all aglow at the DJing talent that's about to whip them into a frenzy.

The Music
The music is loud, the talent undeniable and the genres fast and furious. In any given week, you can expect to find kool-kat funksters, shaggy haired rockers, pained-looking emos, baggy-jeaned, big trainered hip hoppers and fluoro-clad clubbers.

The Drink
Don’t expect to be overwhelmed by the choice of cocktails or salivating at an exciting food menu - the focus here is on the stage. The bar at Concorde 2 serves up big plastic beer glasses with foam running down the side, not fruity Martinis in exotic fruit flavours. If you’re unimpressed, you’re in the wrong place.

The Last Word
Supporters of new and existing talent head to Concorde 2 for an energetic mosh, to have a drunken chat with a friendly random (whose older brother’s best friend went to school with the lead singer of that band) and to see the best acts you’ll find in town. Afer, they leave the club kids shimmy in and the party punches on through till dawn.
