The Charles Street Tap

3 user reviews 4

Searching for late-night gay bars in Brighton and Hove? Boasting two floors of rowdy weekend entertainment and budget-friendly pre-party drinks, Charles Street is a cracking choice. Drag nights are something of a frenzy, where lewd behaviour and laughter go hand in hand. 

Come to Doctor Brightons during the day and you'll find a chilled gay-friendly beachfront pub with comfy Chesterfields and cosy vibes. However, head over once the sun goes down and this spot transforms into a party palace, complete with DJ sets and a lively crowd.

The Amsterdam Bar is perfect for catching up and letting loose with mates. Whether you're after some tasty grub while staring out at the sea, fancy listening to live music or want to belt out some bangers at a karaoke event, this is the place to do it.
