Coalition is a stalwart in Brighton's nightlife circles. Hosting a different experience every day of the week, Brighton's Indie lovers should head down on  Tuesday to their District club night. The DJs will be playing all of your favourite indie and classic rock tunes, while the bar serves an enticing range of discounted beers, spirits and shots.

Fresh from a recent refurbishment, the Hope and Ruin is a quirky Indie club that prides itself on showcasing the best up-and-coming bands in Brighton. With the walls covered in wonderfully weird memorabilia and a sound system that can rival any, this has to be one of Britain's most charming hangouts. The infectious vibes and easy-going atmosphere undoubtedly makes this one of Brighton's best indie spots in town. 

Alongside having one of the most random names in town, the Funkyfish Club in Kempton is something of a jack-of-all-trades. With an easy-going approach to things and some of the best drinks offers in town, the line-up of resident DJs play every genre under the sun, including all your favourite Indie tracks. 

The Green Door Store

Housed in a warehouse space tucked neatly under the Trafalgar Arches, The Green Door Store is a late night music venue that attracts independent acts and creative party patrons. Hosting regular indie and alternative bands from near and far, and showcasing a sweeping selection of genres, The Green Door Store is a failsafe option for an indie club in Brighton.

Concorde 2

A live music institution in its own right, Concorde 2 has been hosting live musicians and party DJs for the past two decades. Once a 19th century tea room and later a 1970s arcade, Concorde 2 has managed to retain its historical charm whilst keeping up to date with the times. A noisy, clamorous space that attracts music loves from across the town, this is a stellar choice for an indie night out in Brighton.
