Founded in 1979, Bulldog Bar is a high energy haunt that packs in a lively lesbian clientele every night of the week. Presenting a calendar filled with cabaret events, karaoke showdowns and live drag nights, it will come as no surprise that this spot is a popular choice during Brighton Pride.

A wonderfully eccentric party spot and something of a drag staple in Brighton, The Queen's Arms delivers a healthy smattering of red baroque themed dècor, glittered ceilings and fairy lights. The ideal setting for a night on the tiles, this Kemptown boozer offers karaoke nights, cabaret shows and hilarious talent contests.
