Volks Bar and Club reviews

By Steve O.

The place to be if youre chasing the beats! They usually have some pretty sick drinks deals so once the phat tunes drop you'll be havin a wicked time! Every time i go there they have different music and its nearly always quality, get yourself down there!

By N.

A popular, no-frills spit and sawdust joint serving cheap beer to aspiring drunks and down and dirty dancers of all ages.

The Venue
Named after the world’s oldest electric railway that runs in front of it, the past reigns at Volks where old drunks and young punks unite in a shared love of cheap beer and loud music. Thanks to its prime location by the seafront, the Volks club pulls in a regular crowd of students, bikers, local senior citizens and random eccentrics.

The People
While the clientele is surprisingly mixed, the conversation revolves around music and bands — not your 9-5 occupation or the property market - making it one of the most representative Brighton clubs of a bygone era when every clubber was an artist whiling away the nights until they were discovered and embarked on the gritty road to fame and fortune.

The Music
With two rooms offering two separate sounds, you’ll be hard pushed to find at least one night that doesn’t suit your musical leanings. Everything from acid jazz, funk, drum and bass, jungle and reggae blares out onto the streets. During the summer and especially on Bank Holidays, the Volks showcases a wide variety (some may say, mish mash) of bedroom DJs, making it a popular weekend watering hole from day until well into the early hours of the following one.

The Drink
Beer seems to go hand in hand with the fresh sea air that wafts into the Volks. You’ll find no glitz and glamour here, so keep the drinks simple. Lager, lager and more lager should do the trick.

The Last Word
A sanctuary for a motley crew of rockers, locals, students, and anyone who likes to get down and dirty, the Volks is a true Brighton original. If you fancy experiencing Brighton clubbing the way it was before it became a frenetic frenzy of glossy limbs, short skirts, flashing cash and sleek decor you need look no further than this trusty stalwart.
