The Joker


The curator of one of Brighton's most notorious clubs, FunFair, is back with a Preston Road special. Welcome to The Joker. Booze, food and coffee courtesy of a partnership with Small Batch are the orders of the day; making The Joker an adaptable all day entertainment lair. 

Tilting towards the pubbing spec with this one, Daniel Wright has planted The Joker right in the center of Brighton's cool cultural hoard. Satisfying the quirky aesthetic of Brightonians, The Joker is a fun fair of live music nights, an upstairs clubbing hot spot called the Devil's Disco where an optical illusion staircase leads you up into a realm of dancing all night. With Blues nights, foodie nights and a cosy comfy pubbing atmosphere The Joker is the ultimate playground for feasting and dancing delights. If you pop down on a Tuesday night as well you can engage in a little card gambling ... cut the deck and if you reveal a Joker your whole food and/or drink order is on the house! Madness! 

The Joker offers a fantastic private hire space which comes complete with its own bar, sound system, giant skull and retro accessories. Alternatively you can hire out the Joker Express for a special occasion with you and your mates (8-10 people) for an exclusive night out experience away from the crowds.
